Bongaree, October 2017, Week 2.

Thursday 12th October 2017, Bongaree.

How time fly’s: Here it is Thursday already and we have to pack up and go home tomorrow. The problem with coming here, being so close to home, is that we are still close to everything when at home, and all normal things were done as if still at home. I had originally decided to not go to the men shed on Tuesday, but would you believe I got an email on Monday requesting my presence to take some photos, and then on Tuesday it was requested that I turn up on Thursday as we had bulk onions to cut for sausage sizzles, so hence there goes my week. It turns out to be not quite the right time of year to be visiting here anyway as it is quite a lot more humid here than it is at home, even though it is only 25K inland. We had considered staying for an extra week, but current bookings will not permit this without us having to move to a different site, and if I have to pack up and move to anywhere it will be home.

Bongaree, October 2017, Week 1.

Friday 6th October 2017, Bongaree.

We are once again out living in the caravan, for a week only though, at Bongaree on Bribie Island. We are only about 20K from home, but we may as well be 1000. The main reason for coming here is because we have been saying for about 15 years now that we would like to stay here for a spell and never got here for some reason or another. It is generally a busy park, so it has probably been booked out when we were most likely to want to stay, but we finally got here. We were originally going to move here on Monday, but it was too wet, so we delayed our trip for a few days, and fortunately the park management were obliging to our request. Apart from Wednesday and Thursday, my usual outings, we do not intend going anywhere or doing anything except enjoy the immediate surroundings.
