OH my what a day…….but the Sun Set so all is good

Well it all started out great, we got up early, packed up the camper, loaded the car, the kids and then it happened………we broke a cable on the Camper as we went to wind down the roof……and the Day just when from bad to worse and then to good again.

The end of the story is we made it half way to our next location and the better part is we are sleeping in comfort, REAL comfort in a deluxe onsite Cabin at Townsville.

I have to say that Camper land, the people we brought the Camper off less than a month ago are expressing the parts up to us from Brisbane to fix the camper free of charge, which is really awesome of them since this was a “buy as is” camper because of its age and since they are really a new Caravan/Camper dealership not a second hand dealership.

I guess what topped it off for us was that not one single Caravan repair place between the Whitsunday’s and Cairns could fix our camper before next Tuesday…. that would of been a week of our holiday GONE…waiting for the camper to be repaired. NOT COOL.

BUT now my awesome husband is going to work his magic with the help of the new part coming on Thursday and we should be in Cairns by Friday Lunchtime.

My Darling Husband in the craziness of today left his wallet on the back of our Camper and drove off…the next thing he knew was he had a call from the Proserpine Police. A VERY honest and Awesome local business man had driven his wallet to the police station after finding in on the road and they called us before we left for Townsville…I can’t even tell you how grateful we are to that man, he wanted to remain nameless…SO I just emailed the local paper on the Whitsunday’s hoping they will print our Thank you to him in hopes he see’s it………The world really does still have a lot of good people in it.

Be Safe and remember Life is Precious,




Day 1 of our big family adventure – Brisbane to Agnes Water

Well today was day one of our big Family Holiday road trip
From Brisbane to Cook Town.

20120910-204221.jpgWe headed off on time at 6.30am, which for us is no small task!
Our newcamper was packed and our car was filled with 4 every excited children.
We decided to only drive 5 hours to Agnes Water a beautiful Beach side town 480km from Brisbane in the Gladstone region. We arrived after a couple of rest stops and where greeted by this beautiful view

20120910-205556.jpg today we decided to just set up and chill, so we checked out a local takeaway for dinner and ended the day with a quick stroll on the beautiful beach(sorry no pictures I left the camera in the van).
Stay tuned for day 2 as we explore the coast and towns in this area.
