Charters Towers to Brisbane

Hi Everyone,
Well we had a wonderful time in Charters Towers catching up with Shantelle, but it was time to move on so we headed off to Claremont. We parked the van at the C/Park:

Then we headed off to Moranbah to visit Dave's sister Leonie.
The drive in was quite pretty:

Leonie & Dave

We spent a lovely few hours catching up with Leonie & then headed back to Claremont for the night.
Next morning it was time to head off again but not before we took some photo's of the beautiful artwork on these trains:

Another lovely day & nice scenery:

Fields of sunflowers

We stopped for the night at a little town called - Banana!

Working on the Blog!
We stayed at the Hotel/Motel/Caravan Park which was quite nice & we had dinner at the Hotel - no cooking :) We met a lovely couple name Danny & Shirley Carroll & we had a nice chat with them.

Then it was onto Gympie where we spent 4 days just relaxing - very nice!

Set up at Gympie

Dave gave the van a wash!

After a lovely 4 days it was time to hit the big smoke! So off we went, we called into the Spinifex factory to order some mods done to the van while we are away in America & then we headed to Lawnton Showgrounds, where we are now until Friday.

We had a wonderful dinner at the local Chinese restaurant last night with our good friends Rod & Mavis (fellow Spin Owners) It was really great to catch up with them.

Today we had lunch with my sister Kaye & her partner Sue - it was wonderful to see her again :)

A long time coming Sis!

Lawnton Showgrounds

Well that's it for now, we leave on Sunday for 3 months in America so please keep following us on our Journey,
Cheers & Happy Travels,
Dave & Shell
