The Voyage of Spectacle

All’s Well in Mackay

Nothing too exciting going on … mostly just killing time before we fly to Los Angeles for my brother’s wedding.  I’m spending a lot of time studying for the Ham Radio licensing exam.  Andy hired a guy to fix the busted propane line.  Other than that, the Sports Bar in the marina complex is super fun so we’ve been watching plenty of Rugby League and Aussie Rules, as well as the last match of the State of Origin series, and the first match of the Bledisloe Cup. 

The marina is quite nice as well … professional and organized.  It also has a fantastic Laundromat – a bit expensive, but I’m willing to pay a premium for the big industrial machines.  Another thing I like is that there’s music in the ablutions building … it’s kinda nice and feels homey to be singin’ in the shower! 

Besides the Sports Bar with its typical Queensland pub grub menu, the marina complex includes an Italian food restaurant (really hit or miss, inedible lasagna, pretty good vegetable primavera), a decent steak house, a seriously over-priced tapas joint run by people who have obviously never been to Spain, a passable Thai restaurant with super convenient take-out, and of course, the “Children of the Corn Café.”
