Beach Bums

There couldn’t be a better place to be a Beach Bum than Palm Cove just north of Cairns!  So that’s where we’ve been for 11 days - doing absolutely nothing except eating, drinking, swimming, fishing and reading!  Oh and baking a cake or two!

We enjoyed getting to know some of the other campers at the site and had a couple of barbeques and meals with new friends.  A night making (and then drinking) gluwien (a hot, spicey German red wine) with Gerd and Mark and Deidre too - never to be forgotten!  However we decided it probably wouldn’t take off in Cairns - more suited to cold winter evenings back in England!

We enjoyed having some visitors while we were there (hence the baking cakes!) - Phil, Kayleen and Sheree; Judy, Murray and Kirsty and Glen and Hanna.   So we’re not losing our hospitality gifts just yet!

We went to the Generations Church for the two Sundays we were there - a very modern, lively and extremely welcoming Church.

But all good things must come to an end - so we moved on to our next good thing!  Cousin Bill and his wife Hilde have a property in Herberton so we’re going to spend a week or so at their place before starting our southward journey towards Brisbane in time for Christmas.
