It seems an age since we were last on the road. In fact it has been just over 10 months – our longest spell without a caravan fix. A lengthy overseas family trip took up most of the summer but we were very keen to hit the road again.
Our first trip was a very short one and focussed on a Golf Carnival in the Wide Bay Region, which is only 400 Kms or so north of Pelican Waters. The tournament lasted 3 weeks and consisted of 9 rounds of golf at 5 different golf courses : Coral Cove, Bargara, Bundaberg, Hervey Bay and Maryborough.
4 couples from Pelican Waters competed in the event and the ladies far out-performed the men. Siobhan had a fantastic result on the trip winning the overall prize for A grade Ladies. Marilyn Redman came runner up in B Grade and Frances McDonald won the C Grade overall.
Maryborough was the home of P L travers, the author who wrote Mary Poppins and the pedestrian crossing lights in the city have her image on them – very cute.
Whilst we were in Maryborough we watched a fascinating event – a 24 hour endurance race for pedal powered vehicles.
Then it is back home for 3 weeks and then we will be off again for a more substantial trip.
