Welcome to our little piece of the WWW.

Each year's sojourn was to visit our boys and their families on the Gold Coast, which we did yearly since 2008 until 2017.
We spent most of our time at Broadwater Tourist Park, so we could visit our grandkids frequently. That has changed.

In Jan 2018: We sold our family house of 40 years and bought an Apartment in Labrador, Qld.
This allows us to watch our Grandkids grow up and be close to our 2 'little' boys and their families.
Even though our 2 boys are nearing 40, (that will make them feel old), they are always my 'little' boys.

May 2021: We are getting our Fiver back on the road again. The lure of 'Grey Nomadding' has got us again.

31st July 2021: Our Caravanning Adventures have officially finished. We have sold our Fiver.

 

We have indepth details of the following:

** Our Caravanning Adventures between 2008 and 2021. **

** Our Fossicking Adventures between 2011 and 2021. **

** My Cycling Adventures which is ongoing. **

Georges wanted to make my front page. Can you pick out the smartarse.
There is always one in every group.
I think this is my best photo of George and his mates.
