Random Update Stardate: 17.08.2013: A quick trip away.

So My Rozie and I spent from Wednesday to Saturday morning at Maroochydore camping.  

Here's a shot of the camp site.  We sleep in the van and the awning is our lounge room and storage.  The whole setup is done in about 15 minutes. 

Rozie really works hard when it comes to hunting and gathering.  Thank goodness she never catches anything - I'd only have to kill and clean any unsuspecting fish.  I've found I'm pretty safe. 

I might update this blog with a review of a few things:  the Maroochy Palms Caravan Park which was really good, the Maroochy Bush Botanical Gardens is a beautiful spot and some random stuff around the Maroochy river.  We enjoyed some beautiful sunsets and pleasant bird life company.  I should also share some info about my very cheap but fantastic bush kitchen (you can see it out the front of the tent on the first shot).  


Thought I'd show you what I mean about the beautiful sunsets.

lol re the fishing.

My husband was the same. Never caught a thing (unless my Dad took him out) despite trying very hard.
