    Home by 4pm. Grass wasn't too overgrown at all considering it's been 4+ weeks.

    Now for the unpacking of the van, and moving in to the new parents pad...

    May 26 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 17 °C

    Had a pretty big day on the road and made it to Rocky. Kershaw Gardens free camp was packed, so paid $30 for an ensuite site at Country Club for Accomodation. Old but clean and cheap!!

    Noosa North Shore

    May 25 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Caught the ferry over to Noosa North Shore and stayed close to the beach at the campground.

    Ian and Jane visited and stayed for a few hours as well.

    Let the tyre pressures down and went beach driving up to Double Island Point lighthouse....great views from up here! Checked out the short Leisha track over to Rainbow Beach on the way back to camp before the tide came in.

    We all said our goodbyes from here, as the Sheeran's and Spanner's headed home, and the Quetti's continued south towards Canberra. A great holiday was had by all!!

    Bargara Beach

    May 22 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Spent some time at New Age and Willow caravan dealers looking at their wares. Really like the construction and light weight of the Willow, but they are a bit pricey.

    Did a tour of the Bundy Rum factory...not as good as last time, but tasted the top shelf rum which was very smooth.

    Our 10 year old reclining chairs are finally giving up the ghost so bought a new flash one for Marg...mine is still hanging in there.

    Agnes Water/1770

    May 19 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    Stayed at Capt Cook Holiday Village as we couldn't get in to Agnes Water Beach Holdays. Lots of trees, and too far from the beach, but ok otherwise.

    We went on the Larc tour which was great fun...managed to spot sting rays, birds and even some playful dolphins escorted us home.Read more

    Stayed 3 days at Beachside Caravan Park at Yeppoon. 3rd time we've stayed here and very lucky to get 3 beachside sites.

    Had a very relaxing stay after our busy week at Airlie...lots of walks on the beach, walks through town, ice creams, fish and chips etc.

    Marg and I had dinner at the Strand Hotel on Saturday night...great meals.

    May 13 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    Just an overnight stop on the way south to Yeppoon. A private cattle property where we parked beside a creek. Cows and cow shit everywhere, but at least it's off the highway and quiet.

    Airlie Beach

    May 12 in Australia ⋅ 🌙 23 °C

    Stayes 2 nights at Seabreeze Caravan Park to restock and do laundry etc before heading off on the next part of our holiday.

    Darren and Debbie jumped off our yacht and straight on another one with another group for a week. Karen and Rob, Mick and Michelle are continuing with us in the vans for a couple of weeks.Read more

    Airlie Beach

    May 10 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 25 °C

    Spent the last day of our trip motoring around Long Island...checking out South Molle resort, Day Dream resort then anchored at Happy Bay for lunch. It was pretty windy and exposed, so we decided to head back to Airlie and anchor out the front of the Marina for the night.

    Cooked and crumbed the Golden Trevally which was beautiful. Another great night on the water with the lights of Airlie Beach providing a perfect backdrop.
