4th Nov 2017 - 10th Nov 2017
Week 433 - Bundaberg

Our bus should be ready for the road in about 7 days.  The last and final job is in the process of being built.  Jo is getting a luxury office desk installed in the motorhome as she spends most of her time on the computer, knitting or sewing.

We have now been in Bundaberg 10 weeks and have been through hail, wind and storms.  The worst weather we have encountered over our 9 years of travelling.  But now we are at the stage to put that all behind us.

A few highlights of our week has been a swarm of native bees that spread across the driveway and were there on and off for a few days; and a lovely early morning bike ride from Mon Repos to Bargara and back.  The ocean views, the beaches and the heads of the Burnett River were spectacular in the early morning sun.

Prior to the Tuesday (Melbourne Cup), Jo rang a lovely seafood restaurant to see if they had a Melbourne Cup function, but they regretfully said no.  Jo said that's good, we would like to book a table for 6 and  Alan, Di and Bill, joined us. It is the first time in many years that we have not had a bet nor watched the race of the Melbourne Cup but we had lovely company and magnificent river views.

So fingers crossed and legs crossed, we are eagerly awaiting completion of repairs.

Not a storm in sight, however we were buffered that night by a ferocious storm. Fortunately we were under cover.
