Day Trip

Monday morning Paul rang to say that he had a load to go to Hervey Bay, so we all piled in the truck for the three hour drive north to the coastal town.

The drive up and back was very scenic, and the best bit is that in the truck you get to see so much more because you are much higher then everyone else.

Everything is so green at the moment, we have had a lot of rain the past couple of months.

The boys thought that this tree was really unusual, it really stood out.

We had to go through the town of Maryborough on the way. There are so many really cute Queenslander homes I managed to get some photos of a couple.

And a cute little farm house.

On the way we also go past Aussie World, the pub is based on the pub in the Dad and Dave cartoons.

It was a lovely day out and the best part of all was the fact that we got paid for it, cool hey. Now the next photo I had to put in because I had to keep on asking the boys for my camera back so that I could take some photos, they were busy taking photos of trucks as they went by. This one turn out pretty good.

Now I have been tagged by Deb @ Posted from Home to do a meme. The directions are - Open a photo folder or document, choose the 5th folder and then the 5th photo in that folder. Do a post with a description of the photo. Tag 5 friends to do the Meme.

The 5th folder that I opened was from our most recent trip to Australia Zoo. This is a must see for anyone the zoo is so beautiful, I have seen the zoo grow over the past 25 years and the changes are amazing. We are lucky that we only live 45 minutes away and we try to get there at least once every two years. Steve's spirit is truly alive and well there. So anyway this was the 5th photo from that folder.

Cute hey. For this meme I tag - Kris @ Tag along Teddies
My next post will be my 50th and also the OWWH giveaway not to mention that the 9th January was my 1 year blog anniversary. So until then I hope that everyone has a lovely week.

I LOVE Koala Bears!! You are so lucky to have them. I saw them at Bush Gardens in Florida.

Congratulations on your year of blogging and 50 posts. You went on a great trip and discovered lots of great scenery, and the houses are so unique. I just love koalas, I smile at how much time they seem to spend asleep! I was lucky enough to see some for real myself last year when we visited Kangaroo Island. The memory of seeing them in their habitat is one I will never forget. x
