24th Nov 2017 - 1st Dec 2017
Week 436 - Brisbane

We have finally pulled up our roots in the Wide Bay area and initially headed south to Maroochydore for a long awaited Novemberfest with the likes of Dregs, Whistle, Grotty Whore, Greasy, Blow Jo etc etc.  We had a fine day tasting the difference between 11 beers.

On Sunday, we deliberately left late in the afternoon headng towards the country town of Kilcoy.  A lovely peaceful free camp at the start of the Brisbane Valley and to our delight a cow gave birth overnight and we spent the morning watching the mother look after her child.  It is amazing how the young one soon got on its feet and suckled on the udder of the mother.  Rusti too was fascinated and well behaved considering.

With no intended rush in mind, we headed on late morning through Esk, Wivenhoe Dam to Lowood for a rendeavous with my mother.  Nothing much has changed there, apart from a slight deterioration in her weight, health and diet and I do believe her mental state is not good, probably some type of depression.  Not a good snapshot, probably my last images of mum.  However, she has had a good and varied life and there is no need for her to suffer for too long.

Brisbane awaited us once again with its traffic and congestion with a huge downpour to greet us on arrival at Werriwood Road, Chandler.  We are camped at Bushy's next door neighbour as there is a big hash function at his place this weekend.

We are only in Brisbane for about 5 days and have already done some catching up and with a lot more to do but at least we have managed to get our blog to you on time.
