A Wee Getaway to Maroochydore 

The group had worked 2 weeks straight and had spent the last few days on second picks, so we were very low. Luckily, good old Ellie saw this and arranged for us to go to her friends for a couple of days, down in Maroochydore.  So the boys went in one car and the girls…

Farmer Lucy Has Arrived!

After a long 20 hour bus journey, I had finally arrived in Gympie!  It’s a cute wee old mining town filled with pubs for the locals and the ever so handy Coles.  The female owner of the farm greeted me at the bus stop and we went to join her husband in a pizza place….
