We have have a busy time in January. We packed and left for a trip to Mackay on New Years day, getting as far as Rockhampton on the 1st Day, where we had a long over due catch up we Harri's Uncle Dan and Aunty Michelle. We were warmly accepted and stayed the night, we all enjoyed the lasagne Michelle had prepared.
We travelled on the following day arriving in Mackay mid afternoon, seeing Grandma before finally arriving at the Barrow Hill farm, where we were going to make our base for the couple of days we were to stay in Mackay. During our stay visited with the relatives and friends, as well as swam in the Pioneer river ( above the Dumblton Weir ), visited a Eungella National Park walking to the platypus observation decks, had a birthday lunch for grandma and ten pin bowling.
We left Mackay and arrived in Brisbane on the 6th. We then began to prepare for our beach holiday at Marcoola. We left early this year than previous years and were staying for a total of 10 nights. Our lovely apartment at Marcoola Beach Resort was very close to the beach and surf life saving patrols. We also had a pool, a heated spa, gymnasium, tennis court, sauna and BBQ's. Much to the children's delight, free, pay-TV with Nickelodeon.
We have now returned from Holiday's all a little browner, but a lot more relaxed.
We hope the new year has been good for you and we look forward to sharing an exciting year with you.
