Anyway I will try to compose myself for the remainder of this blog, we arrived yesterday and set up camp, after doing some school work and having a general butting of heads between Alpha Male and wannabe Alpha male things cooled down as we swapped the role of student to teacher and employed Elijah as Amelia’s teacher for the day. In the afternoon we headed to Balgal’s Beach and walked down by the water the kids built some shell castles whilst I watched the council pull in the stinger nets as it was the end of the stinger season.
Today as it was our 13th wedding anniversary Rosalee had agreed with the kids to have pancakes, but as she left for her run after I finished my walk, I was stuck with making the pancakes which somehow I made quickly and relatively painless except for the half cup of flower on my shoe. Marcella tells me that I am not real good with the flour are you Dad! When Rosalee returned the kids presented us with a card that they had made for our anniversary it was very nice. Thanks kids.
After school we headed up the Paluma mountain range and stopped first at Little Crystal Creek and saw the waterfalls and then onto the village of Paluma, where we took a photo from the lookout.
WE then headed down the mountain and onto lunch at the Frosty Mango where we were all looking forward to a Mango Smoothie, when we got there we ordered 6 smoothies and at $7 a pop there not cheap, during lunch both Marcella and Amelia remembered that they did not like mango smoothies, and handed theirs around to the rest of us.
Once back at camp we played a game of cards and Lilianna won despite being very far behind at one stage.
A good day with Roslaee and I spending the night sitting out under the stars talking about life. It simply doesn’t get better than that.
