Off to the Tropics

It is almost winter here, although this past week one could be forgiven for thinking winter has already arrived.
So, in just four days time we are escaping to tropical North Queensland where temperatures are up around 28 deg during the day and a mild 15 – 20 overnight. 
With camper open
This will be our ‘digs’ for about a month or so.  Those little steps lead up to the boudoir.  The kitchen area is at the back of this.  Sink and gas stove and pantry.    It doesn’t look very big in this photo, but believe me, there is plenty of room and storage.  The whole thing folds up and sits on the back of the truck and then you can go anywhere a 4wd vehicle can go.  We love to head into the bush and off the beaten tracks, so this will be ideal.  We are travelling with 2 other couples so it should be a real hoot!!
This particular set up is called a ‘Travelander’ and if you are interested, you can see more of their features here at this website.
We will miss our little poppet, Lilian. 
Here she is at her cubby house which is currently in our back yard. Her great grandpa bought her this.  She is the apple of his eye – his only great grandchild…… so far.

Nothing to show for TAST this week yet.  It may be finished by tomorrow if I can get a good go at it tonight in front of television.

sounds like you are in for a great time, can imagine there will be a lot of laughs with the other 2 couples, guess there will not be much stitching done whilst you are away

I wish you well, Dianne, on your Tropic holidays. I hope you won't miss us - the Fingers - too much. One thing I can tell you for sure - I will miss your humorous comments and have to get on without. But ---- we are leaving also for the warmer south, Adriatic sea, on the island Hvar, where many Australians are popping up for a shsort time. I will always ask them whether they know you...
Take care!

Lovely to see the 'rig' Dianne, and hope the trip goes well. You will all have a ball no doubt. We will miss you, and hope you manage to find a signal somewhere. Just adore Lilian's cubby, could do with that one myself. Happy packing, and hope you are ready in time.......
