Hello from Rockhampton!!
Everything went really well for the weekend at Cape Palmerston, we had a great time catching up with family.
The weather of course was hot and very windy and also one morning of rain but luckily that cleared and we ended up having a great afternoon.
We didn’t end up going to the National Park as the family have a new addition……a gorgeous Border Collie pup, only 11 weeks old. If we ever get a dog it would be one of these, they are so cute and easy to train and tremendous fun. We let him off the leash on the beach and he never ran off which I think is amazing for such a young pup. You would certainly never get bored with life with one of these gorgeous dogs as company.
We had a great time with the Grandkiddies too, being 8 & 10 now we can have fantastic conversations with them and they are also really good fun to hang out with.

We were so busy though the whole weekend that we really didn’t have much chance for birding. We did see quite a few different shore birds at low tide and Anthony missed out on photos of the Red – tailed Black Cockatoo. There wasn’t much scenery either for videos so I haven’t got much to show either.

Yesterday we made our way further south to Rockhampton, we picked up our extra 200 kilos of stuff that we had offloaded to a storage shed on the way up the coast. Wow…..that was just a little depressing trying to fit it all in again😩😩
Next off season we will get a storage shed in Stanthorpe and off load there and also maybe sell and give away some stuff that we definitely don’t use anymore.
This morning we visited the Botanical Gardens which is always a nice relaxing place to meander around. There’s a great cafe and also a lagoon with the standard array of ducks, pelicans, stilts, birds of prey etc.

We are on the road again tomorrow but haven’t decided yet how far south to go….have to ponder over some maps first and see where we want to be for a few days. So please enjoy the photos and snippets we did manage to get.

Bye for now, Steph and Anthony.
