This year's sojourn was to visit our boys on the Gold Coast, which we have done yearly since 2008.
We were away from 16th March until 25th September.
Travelled to the Gold Coast, then along the coast to Townsville, making our way
over to Quilpie to Yowah, over to Dicky Beach, back to the Gold Coast then home.
This year we saw our boys twice on the Gold Coast. Which was magic. We miss them heaps.

We are still living our Dream.
