We had a quick trip over to the coast to get a few things done to the van at the factory. Since we had to be there early (7am) we thought we'd put up with a noisy night at the Landsborough turnoff. What we didn't bank on was a seeming 'park and ride' that started about 4am. By the time we decided we'd leave at 5am we were almost parked in...

A special weekend with Ellie

Since her brother came to the gem fields for the July school holidays, we had promised Ellie a special three-day weekend away. A pupil free day provided the perfect opportunity. Our first stop was the rest area at Ravensbourne. This giant worm was found in a bit of an explore after breakfast.

The main destination for the weekend was Somerset Dam. It turned out to be great weather for kayaking, and after being a passenger for a while Ellie decided it was her turn to paddle. We called her Captain Zig Zag, but she did a great job!

We saw a pheasant coucal, invented a new dessert - The Taj Special, had perfect morning tea marshmallows and spent Sunday afternoon at the mountain cousins where we learnt about bee keeping.

The perfect campsite is hard to find, and everyone wishes they could reserve their spot for next time... so we did. Our favourite Brisbane bush block, with power, water and meals (including morning & afternoon tea!!) is officially reserved.
