Made it home yesterday afternoon after a fabulous week in Yepoon with friends.
Camping kinda got postponed due to the wet... even if the rain had of stopped (which it didn't),
it still would have been far too boggy to camp in all the spots we had planned.
The first week of the hols was consequently spent on day trips here and there and a couple
of days in Mackay to take the kids to the movies and do a bit of shopping etc etc.
The second week saw us in Yepoon with friends .... we finally made it down to them to
check out their new house they have just built, with spectacular views of the ocean.
Such a glorious week... the hightlight of which was the day trip out to Great Keppel on their boat,
and the private whale watching show that we were treated to!!!!
We also did a bit of a reconnaissance for a good camping spot for our next visit,
which involved a picnic lunch, a bit of beach 4WDing to quite a remote little spot,
and plenty of amazing views ... finished off with a dip in a big rockpool,
complete with a rope swing ... just beautiful!
Here's a bit of a pictorial summary:
