Back soon

Sorry for my absence but I am on an adventure in Queensland with my family for a few weeks and won't be getting any time to blog.

So far we have had lots of rain here in 'sunny' Queensland. Today the sun did appear however so we were finally able to have a look around in sunshine instead of rain.

Have been really busy taking in the sights.
We went to Australia Zoo and that has been a highlight of our visit so far. Have hit the shops at Maroochydore and Mooloolaba, been to a couple of markets, Caloundra and Eumundi, Noosa Heads, Ettamogah Pub, The Big Pineapple, taken dh and ds to the big kart track for some serious go carting, the Air Museum in Coloundra, the Glass House Mountains, King's Beach, Underwater world, and the list goes on...

The Forrest Glen park we have been staying at is great, with a big heated pool and plenty of activities for the children. We leave tomorrow for Treasure Island and do the theme parks on the Gold Coast this week.

I will be back soon with some photos of our journey,

I think I may go home to the dry country, pack my bags and head up here now I know what I am missing out on lol. Everything is so green and lush, why would you want to live anywhere else.
