6 Wandering Epsomites on the move again October 2013

This time, we welcome Glenda and Colin to our little team of  Wandering Epsomites. Russell and Helen are back, but Shelley and Richie are not. Thailand earlier in the year was a better offer for them. 
Our destination this time is a little closer to home than last year (Vietnam). Fraser Isand beckons.
Russell and I have been lucky enough to get away last Saturday to have some relax time at Mooloolaba. Two overnight stops for us (Dubbo and Toowoomba) to get to the Sunshine Coast.  
Very pleasant weather and the water temp was great.  
Boogie boards got a good work out in the surf.
Mooloolaba prawns were very tasty as was the highly recommended "Spice Bar".

Today is Friday and Russ and I have made our way leisurely to Hervey Bay. Russell has made himself very comfy already.(Above) Here for 2 nights.  The others left Epsom yesterday afternoon around 4pm. They were driving through the night. Last time we spoke to them about 1 this afternoon, they were near Nanango (near Kingaroy) where they were stopping at Helen's sister's place.  A hot shower was beckoning and probably lunch. The weary souls will arrive sometime around 5.  
The weather here today is nice, but very windy. In fact, we have not seen the bay here so rough! (Above and below) Could even use the boogie boards.  Glad we are not ferry crossing til Sunday morning. It might be calmer then.
We are spending 7 nights on Fraser Island, not sure what the internet reception will be like, but will post photos and blog when I can.
We are travelling with Helen and Russell in their land cruiser.  It will be loaded up.  In fact, Russ and I believe that we will be in the rocking chairs on the roof rack (just like the Beverly Hilbillies)!
Stay tuned for more of our travels.
