Hervey Bay Queensland

Hi everyone! I am back from my holiday to Hervey Bay Queensland, the weather wasnt very kind to us it was very cold and windy and I have come home with an ear and viral chest infection. The Main reason for this Holiday was Donna's life long friend Nikki's 40th birthday. Which gave me a chance to catch up withNikki and her parents Brian & Carol, and the rest of the family who I had not seen for a few years. Now a trip to Queensland would not be complete with out catching up with Peter (Holtieshouse), a friend of 50 plus years, came up from Gympie to spend the day with us . Peter took me to Akarra tea gardens, had a lovely walk through the Wetlands and garden before lunch. After a nice lunch and chat,it was then off to Nikki's for a BBQ get together where Peter also caught up with the family after many years .See Peters Blog

Now to end with a few photo's. and as soon as i feel a little better I will get around to visiting all your blogs so take care. Jeanette

Welcome back, Jeanette. Shame the weather wasn't particularly kind to you, but it was much the same (only probably colder) here.
Your photos are wonderful, and it must have been great catching up with loved ones.
Thanks for sharing.
Take care, Meow

Welcome back, Jen. Pity the weather was so cold, but it's the first cold winter we've had for years, so we're hoping we'll get a proper Wet this year to help fill the dams.

Looks like you had a lovely time with your friends, though. (I keep seeing photos of Peter!)

Hi Jan ~~ Glad to hear you are home safely and had a good time in spite
of the cold weather. I hope Donna and her family also enjoyed the holiday.
Sorry you aren't feeling too well and
hope that soon clears up. Did you get some anti-biotics? for the ear
infection? I am having fun posting pictures lately and it seems to be a popular move. Take great care, dear Jan, Love, Merle.

Hi again Jan ~~ Thanks for your comments - glad you like the family photos and Bec goes home tomorrow, so it will be back to just me.

Awww, so sorry you came home sick. You just commented that I can whine to you, any time. Well, you can whine to me too!

Your whine would be about this ding-dang cold and infection. Mine is about my back hurting again and it cutting back on my computer chair time. We can whine beautifully, together!!!

Great pics though!!!

Hi Jan -- I should have checked on you the day you gave me a 'heads up.' I would have wished you a 'get well soon' wish or two then.
