Our New Adventures

View from our new Patio

Well loyal followers a lot has happened since our last update including this new blog
Firstly we are no longer in Adelaide.
Second big news is that we now own a beautiful home in lovely Etty Bay Qld!

But I will try not to get ahead of myself & explain a few things.

We flew to Cairns in November & purchased the house. When we fly back to Adelaide to our van, Dave found out he had been made redundant!!!!!!!
We were expecting this but not until after Christmas - but atleast this way we could drive the van up to our house quicker :)

So we headed off on Friday 23rd November, taking our time & calling into visit some friends along the way.
we stopped at Broken Hill & then onto Nyngin where we found a great little Caravan Park by the river
it even had its own little Zoo:

Camels, Goats &  Donkeys.

Dave didn't want to share his Bundy

Then we moved onto Dubbo to see our Friends Tracey & Dave
They manage the Dubbo City Holiday Park -
 Dubbo City Holiday Park
great spot if you are ever in town, tell them we sent you.

Then we crossed the border into Queensland - our new home state!

 We spent the night in Dalby & then we were onto Maroochydore to see Rob & Marg & their friends Mark & Trudy. We had a great couple of days with them. They were staying at a C/Park right on the beach it was beautiful:

Life On Easy Street!

We left there & headed for our favourite place - The Bundy Factory!!!!!!

Can we fit this on the Roof?

We had a night in a free camp then onto Charters Towers to visit our Daughter Shantelle.
We stayed there for 3 days, it was good to catch up with her & our friend Karen over a few drinks!

At last time to head off to our new home - Etty Bay Queensland.

Our Old & New Home together!

Well now I have caught everyone up to date with our New Adventures - house based!

Shantelle & Pete are coming up for a few days after Christmas, looking forward to that.

We hope all our new & old followers have a wonderful Christmas & many happy travels in the New Year.

Cheers Dave & Shell
