Here’s a catch-up post. I’m going to call them flashbacks. From earlier in our trip, so the post is out of order. Hopefully I’ll be able to sneak these in from time to time and catch up on blogging about some of the places we’ve been. I’m finding it near impossible to keep up, every time I feel close to caught up it all gets away from me again! On our way up the east coast we spent a couple of nights in Elliott Heads, near Bundaberg. The beach was right across the road. We were there at sunset which made for some beautiful pictures. They got in the water, but then they were freezing. That sun is tricky. You arrive at the beach thinking it’s lovely and warm but then the sun goes down and the warmth goes with it. Quickly. TurboBug was thrilled to take his new dump truck to the beach. He’d gotten it for his birthday and hadn’t even considered that it could be taken to the beach. What a discovery! We drove to nearby Bundaberg and saw heaps of sugarcane. It’s plentiful as we head north. The sugarcane is often hauled on special trains which have their own tracks. It’s interesting to see the plants in all the various stages of growth. Family bike ride. The trail went right up the coast. It was a nice warm morning. Such a lovely ride. The kids scrambled down to have a look at a large rock pool. They all wanted to climb the huge rock for a picture with the tree, which wasn’t really a tree but a branch someone had jammed in the rock. We followed the trail up the coast where it dead-ended in a new housing development. We pondered living in Elliott Heads to enjoy the stunning ocean views. Sigh. Random ‘triangle’ house that LadyBug wanted a picture of. :) I’d love to go in and see how it feels from the inside. And that’s Elliott Heads. A small town with lovely views. 🙂
