We are back from our little sojourn to the north. We visited our favourite place in the world again this year, Town of 1770. If you are a Queenslander and haven’t visited 1770, as ‘Molly’ would say, do yourself a favour.
The photo above was taken while I was having my morning coffee in front of our camper. We were RIGHT on the beach front. Walk out of the camper – take five steps and you are on the beach. Heaven.
Along the way we stopped and visited my cousin and husband on their fish/mango /sugar cane farm. How they fit all the work in that they do I will never know. I am in awe of them. We also visited my cousin Janet’s mum, Aunt Lyla, who was married to my Mum’s eldest brother. He is now deceased – we all miss him terribly.
After we left Bundaberg we spend 4 days in the most idyllic place ever. It is called Norval and the pristine beach stretches forever. As you can see, you are allowed to drive along the beach. Windows down, wind in the hair, it was invigorating.
The boys went crabbing and caught these beauties. and we had…….
fresh crab sandwiches on fresh bread. Love
While we were in 1770 I was thrilled to catch up with my long time friend (from Grade 1 actually), Maree. We have not seen each other for many, many years. Her father and my mother were cousins and we have always kept in touch. To make the reunion even better, my sister and her husband were able to join us for 5 days too. It was so much fun catching up!
We were then joined by a whole gang of friends and friends of friends from Bribie Island and the Sunshine Coast. It was soooo much fun. We enjoyed our get togethers every afternoon and ate and drank waaaaaay too much.
The sun set on our little holiday and it was home and back to reality.
Until next time…………………….Dianne.
