It has been a while since S and I have visited Queen Mary Falls. One reason is that the falls is a national park so we cannot bring our dog Ada who travels with us most time. This time, B and her dog Cassie hosted Ada at home so we could have a couple of … Continue reading Queen Mary Falls.
S and I had a week long break and decided to go somewhere different. Looking around we decided on the village of Tin Can Bay. We were lucky to not be affected by the recent floods and did set up in a dog friendly caravan park called Kingfisher Caravan Park. It is a nice little … Continue reading Visit to Tin Can Bay

Nine hours of travelling which did include three stops so about seven and a … Continue reading Long, long road to Lightning Ridge
Just a few pictures of birds on the lake at Country Style Caravan Park. Not a bird but this was from one and a half meters and was the size of my thumb.
S and I have made a break for our favourite beach. Our daughter has brought her dog along and have introduced Cassandra to the surf and salt water. She loves it! She has also worked out that she is a better swimmer than Ada so while Ada beats her up on dry land, Cassie can … Continue reading Two dogs in the water
