Lawson and I.

Off to the hinterland today. No not as far as O'Riellys, once along that road is enough... So we went to Canungra and Beaudessert. Its funny how revisiting somewhere can bring back strange memories. When in 1970 I completed training at JTC the chief instructor had earned himself the nick name “And errr consequently” because that's about all he had to say. Due to the heavy rain over night the creeks have all risen “and err consequently” we cant practice creek crossing today “and errr consequently” your programs will need to be amended AND it went on like this ad nauseam for the 3 weeks we were there. Only point of recognition was the bowling green.

We should have had lunch at the Cafe alas I drove on to Beaudessert to the RSL.... Worst meals we have had this trip.

Then back to the van, rest then venture out to Seaworld to have dinner with my niece Lisa and great Nephew Lawson. Traffic was in total chaos because of the car race but I've decided to become a petrol-head. I have a little work to do on my paunch and posture and I've been practising the lingo, “Youse boyz gunna ave another bear?”... See all too easy...

Lisa and Lawson are here on a holiday to see all the theme parks and it was great to catch up...

The G Link seems to work, the trams were chockablock heading both ways, hope its calmed down a bit for our end to end and depot experience tomorrow, Hyacinth just loves being dragged through tram depots...
