Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Currumbin 17 – 18 January 2008

Left Woody Point early with plans to visit Peter’s cousins. We had a lovely morning tea with Dianne in south Brisbane and caught up with all the family goings on. It was good to stay connected but it reminds us how quickly time is passing. We stopped at the Winnebago dealer and looked over the new Winnis. DROOL! But it also made us appreciate some of the features of ours which is reassuring.
We then moved on to visit another cousin of Peters, Kerry, and Kerry’s wife Di. They have bought an old canal house on the Gold Coast and are doing it up. It was surprisingly peaceful and not very dense. Being an older canal development the properties were well spaced out and Kerry and Di’s home looks down the canal across to NSW mountains and hills. They have big plans and blew us away with the progress they have done in 6 weeks! They expect to do the rest in the next 6 weeks! It’s interesting to observe a different mind set to approaching a project. Peter gave Kerry a hand to paint the outside and we caught up with family stories. They provided great barbequed meals both nights on a new BBQ that had an amazing array of facilities that would nearly substitute for a kitchen!
