QLD Bound

We are officially Queenslanders again and are really enjoying unwinding at the Sunshine Coast for a few days before we set off again to head further north to Bundaberg.  The photos below tell the story of our journey.

 
Packing the container

 
It looks messy but is surprisingly methodical. We left at 9.00am Friday morning.

Breakfast in Grafton on Saturday morning.

The trip from Jeeralang Junction to Buderim was surprisingly smooth.  Both the boys and Bear our dog were incredibly well behaved.  Our 23 hours of driving was done in 27, making sure we had plenty of rest stops along the way.  We slept for a few hours in Gosford, and made many other stops for refreshments etc.  A nice hot shower, the comfort of a good bed and the loving arms of family made the drive more than worthwhile.  We also saw some beautiful county along the way.

 
Canola Fields in North Victoria

The scenery around Gundagai in NSW.
 

 
A double rainbow to light our way.
 
We have been enjoying spending time with family and even went to the beach this morning.  The weather is nothing short of glorious.  My body is rejoicing in the warmth and Sam's fingers are finally warm again.

Time for snacks
 
 Having fun and clowning around.

 Glorious Currimundi beach.

Still sweethearts after all of these years.
 
Don begins his twin engine endorsement on Wednesday and then we will head to Bundaberg by the end of the week.  Our belongings are now safe and well stored in Longreach, ready for our arrival, thanks to a super effort from the people who helped us move.  They will remain unnamed but they know who they are.  We ask God to pour out his blessing on you.  For you are the answer to our prayer.  We could not have moved without you.

Wish I could be going up there with you, Nicole. We've moved down to Gundagai NSW and we're missing QLD!
I love the double rainbow. A great reminder of God's promises and faithfulness. May you know His guiding hand all the way!

Really Jenny, wow you've moved to Gundagai! It was so pretty through that whole area. But yes, I can understand how you would be missing QLD. Yes, the double rainbow was a very exciting moment for us. The picture doesn't do it justice. It was truly so vibrant. God has been so good to us.

Totally agree. The rainbow is definitely a promise. Every time I see one, I stop and take a moment. A double rainbow is even more exciting. What fabulous adventures are in store for you guys in your journey to follow the son.

Hi Nicole,

Boy so much must have happened since I last visited you. I am sorry now for not coming here more often.

So you are on the move again. Lucky you getting away from the cold in Victoria...

I am going to read back through your posts and catch up with your news :)

God Bless you all and best of luck on your new adventure.
