After our lovely time at Airlie Beach we headed to Townsville for 2 nights. We knew that we were going to have a busy time there. My cousin, Brad, is based at Townsville with the Army. So I couldn't be in the same city and not catch up with him and Jess.
love this boy! just sad that I don't get to see him very often :-/
We had also arranged to meet up with our friends Warren and Rowena and their kids while they were on their way home from a holiday at Cairns and were heading back to Emerald.. it was great to see them! I can't believe how much my beautiful godson has grown in the 2 years since we have seen him :(
On the second day we took the kids to the lagoon on the Strand to have some fun. After lunch Row and I took all the kids home for a sleep (and us as well lol) while the boys went for a bit of Barra fishing.
By the smile on Craig's face,I would say that he had a great afternoon. They even got a tour of the Army base there too, it is mind blowing at how big it is! And then it was out to dinner again with Row, Waz and kids... it was hard to say goodbye :(
The next morning we headed off to South Mission beach. There wasn't really that much to do there, but that was exactly what we needed. We did do a bit of exploring though. The view of Dunk Island from the beach was spectacular.
After two days we were ready to move on to Cairns... but that needs a whole blog post to it's self........
Thanks for dropping by
