It was then time to visit […]

We have left Yeppoon.  It was an interesting trip from Lake Awoonga.  Firstly we we were ready to leave. Walking around the van for a final check I discovered a slightly flat tyre.  The manager of the caravan park suggested it was all not gloom and doom, as it was only flat on the bottom. […]

We are currently at Lake Awoonga.  Shifted here yesterday. Forgot to share this picture of the cane.  After a few years of growing cane they grow another crop.  Sometimes sweet potato. Another topic was another gadget I purchased.  Was looking to buy some good coffee beans, so went to a place that ended up with […]
