Mt. Isa to Brissie

Home Sweet Home


Stayed a night at Richmond Lakeside Caravan Park en route to Charters Towers - one of the best we have stayed at in 2 years. Next day arrived at Jim and Joan Barrett's place at Moonlight Creek. Well nothing has changed!!!! Welcomed with open arms and were met by 5 dogs + I believe 5 new puppies. He still has lots and lots of birds - as Jim puts it "if it eats and shits we have it"

Had a lovely steak dinner and then watched the State of Origin 3. In the morning before we left we looked at and patted etc. all the animals -alpacas, goats, deer(even a bambi), miniature shetlands---have you got the picture. I had to kiss Solomon, the camel goodbye. John did too.

Called in for a few days with John's sister Trish. Her husband is no good and is suffering with emphysemia and bronchyectesis and another lung condition and hence is on oxygen off and on. I think she was pleased for the diversion for a while.

Now at Rockhampton and calling in at Edna and Les Martin's place at Bundaberg before heading for Caloundra and then Samford to drop off the van for a while.

Happy Travels
