A Big Adventure

We are heading off on a big adventure.
(courtesy of google maps)
All the way to the Gulf of Carpentaria and the town of Karumba.  My mouth is already watering with the promise of fresh prawns and seafood.  Hope I am not disappointed!!  It may not be the season for prawns and crabs  Sad smile
Along the way we will be stopping and enjoying some of Queensland’s National Parks and we will be visiting my husband’s niece who lives in Normanton, right up there in the Gulf country. We are equipped to do a bit of camping.  I normally don’t do camping – but hubby is all organized (Virgo) and has convinced me it will be fun!!  We are definitely not camping until we reach the warmer weather of the North.
We have a pre paid broadband, so if I am able to get a connection in the bush, I will post a blog or two.
Be back in about 3 weeks!!
Oh ….BTW…..I have packed a little stitching to do along the way.  All packed in a plastic box to protect against No 1 enemy DUST.

Di have a wonderful time, what a fabulous trip. Don't forget to take lots of photos. I'm already looking forward to hearing all about it.

Have a great time - are you going to get to the Isa Rodeo? We are considering doing that next year (photo opportunities).

Have a wonderful trip Dianne, and I do hope you manage to pick up a signal somewhere so we hear from you. Take care on the roads, remember the kangaroos, and various other things that seem to think the road is okay to cross at their leisure. It's a good time to go north now, wet season over for a while. Hope you don't have to 'camp out' too many times. I'm not a camper either.

That is lovely to see your tour!
And the bush broadband is brilliant.
All your friends will virtually accompany you.
