Easter Camping

We had the most amazing Easter in quite a few years.  So relaxing for a change.  For the last 5years I have been part of one of the many festivals here at Redcliffe on Good Friday for the Brisbane to Gladstone Boat Race.  This year I decided that I would not be at any festivals and instead Bill, William and I went away camping to Mt Warning Rainforest Park just over the border.  What an amazing place and the owners were so friendly that we have already booked for next easter with a longer stay.  We were amazed that the weather was quite good except for Sunday Night when the heavens opened up but thats the joy of camping.

I have been neglecting my blog lately and I am sorry for that.  Presently my full time work has been quite stressful but hopefully at the end of the week when I lose a chunk of it I will be able to get back on top of things that I truly enjoy.  With this in mind this was the reason for the camping trip.

After spending 2 hours in the traffic.  Note to self next year we will be leaving a day earlier.  So many campers and caravans out on Good Friday.  Everyone had the same idea this easter.  We arrived at our destination.

Camp all set up now to sit back and relax

The scenery was magical


Beautiful little creek nearby

I could sit here all day and listen to the birds and the water.  Truly magical.

Quaint little bush cafe just up the road.


Never been so relaxed.  Bill and I.

Tropical Fruit growing close by.

Even the wild life were friendly.

Easter Sunday saw a visit from my youngest grandchildren with their mum and dad.
Everything was perfect for the weekend.  Not even the rain on Sunday Night bothered us.  We were so impressed by the place that we have booked again for next easter as well as a week in October.
I am really enjoying camping and in 2 weeks time we are heading to 1770.
