Another couple of weeks and we are still here. We have had the company of K & A for the past two weeks and they will soon be on their way north to join family for further travels. It has been very enjoyable having them with us for a lengthy visit as we haven’t had such a lengthy visit for so long and we did have a lot to catch up on. We, along with K&A, have almost decided that if we had to settle somewhere then this is where we would like it to be, so we have been having a quiet look around the area for rates of different types of accommodation, but I keep coming back to “What’s wrong with the caravan in the park where we are now”, they do have permanent sites as well. We are going to give the whole idea consideration over the next year with the idea that we may consider something permanent from next year’s move up here.

I have done it again, forgotten to make an entry when it should be appropriate, sorry ‘Hoss’.

Linda has once again returned from Melbourne, been back for several days now.

We went for a drive today to check out a couple of towns and caravan parks, because if we are here at Beachmere for too long we will be required to move out for a week if we wish to return. This is quite common with a lot of caravan parks nowadays, especially council owned parks. There are several other parks advertised in the laundry here so we decided to check them out and wouldn’t you know it, they are all owned by the local council. One in particular is Toombul, north of here by a few kilometres, but 30 odd to get there, and is quite a nice small town and caravan park. We could quite easily spend some time there, bearing in mind shopping is a little sparse there, but it is only 20K odd to Caboolture.

Beachmere, on my own again.

Friday 6th July 2012, Beachmere.

I have just had a friendly jolt from friends that I haven’t been keeping this web site up to date enough, and that inspires me to knowing there is someone regularly reading it. I have been rather busy over the past few days organising several things so haven’t given a thought to an update.

I haven’t yet reported that Linda has flown back to Melbourne for a week for a combination Grandkid fix, and doctors visit, so I am here on my own once again. She left on Monday and will be back on Tuesday next week, which turns out to be horrible timing as it was Ken and Val from Tassie that paid me a surprise visit this morning, knowing where we were from these reports, and have now missed meeting Linda. It turns out they will only be in the area, Brisbane and Sunshine Coast, until Wednesday so Linda will unfortunately miss them. I may have started something with telling people about Beachmere and this caravan park as Ken and Val were very impressed with first impressions of the area, and I am not surprised, so we may have started other people thinking of coming here, and it is only a small park. We also have others planning on visiting as well, and they may even end up with the same ideas.
