Oodies Cafe A Touch Of Culture In Bundaberg

Today we finally stopped in to Oodies Cafe in Bundaberg – I have wanted to stop there for so very long but time/plans haven’t allowed us. Today David and I wanted some much needed “Us Time” as we haven’t had any in so very long, and now that we have a new baby in the house we were craving time together without our boys/baby puppy dog!

Now to find time to go there on a Friday night with out the kids – A real date with just the two of us, good food, wine/beer – heaven on earth! Yeah I don’t know when we were ever get the time for that but hey I can dream can’t I?

Supporting The Local Farmers

We have always tried to Support the Local Farmers where ever we are on our travels. From little road side stores to markets to even buying from the farm.

The other day we went to Bargara Beach for some Geocaching, and on our way home we stopped to buy a bag of Sweet Potatoes for $2.00 and a bag of Zucchini for $2.00. We sure had the most amazing Baked Dinner that night!

Do you know that I could so eat a Roast Chicken and Baked Veggies every night of the week, but I don’t think our boys {or David} would agree to that!

Bargara Beach And Geocaching

On Wednesday’s we go into town to meet up with the Homeschooling group at the “Take The Plunge Cafe” – where we get to have fun working out how the Edison’s are supposed to move, and have a green tea with other homeschooling Mums – its my much needed down time.

We don’t do school work {most of us are unschoolers anyway} but because one of the sweet mama’s is a teacher {or should I say ex-teacher now that she has kids!} takes so many wonderful things for us and the kids to do. Last week she started teaching us Spanish with numbers which was such a cool thing to do.

Before we meet up I have about five hours to waste {we drop off David to work in the mornings} so we head to Bargara Beach for some Geocahing, and then head to the library before the cafe meet up.

Baffle Creek Raft Race

Every year they have a Baffle Creek Raft Race where you can build your own, or turn up and they supply all the stuff needed to make one on the spot and race {its called a “Dogs Breakfast Race”}. We haven’t even been up to Baffle Creek before so I was keen to see what the town was like. We decided to join the Bundaberg Homeschooling group who were staying on a friends property for a spot of of Free Camping!

Baffle Creek Raft Race ::

Cameron and Kyle did make rafts at Grandma and Grandad’s place but they didn’t end up using them. Instead everyone got together and made one that could hold 5 of the homeschooling boys.

Fred Haigh Dam

I have wanted to drive out to Fred Haigh Dam for so very long! Its been on my Bucket List for so very long, but things happen and we haven’t been able to drive out there – and believe it or not we had to go through Gin Gin Queensland  to get there – and found two caches at the Rest Stop.

We are super excited because we have found our first “Trackable” and our first “Travel Bug” – Kyle and Cameron had no idea what either one meant, and to be honest neither did I, so I had to do a fast google search.

We have contacted the owner of the “Trackable” and he has agreed that we are allowed to keep it with us for the time being, and will be taking it on a special trip soon! Lets see how far it can travel – it came from Sweden so far! And has been in Queensland – lets see where it ends up.

Some Of The Geocache We Have Found

In the last three weeks we have been Geocaching as much of Bundaberg as Possible. We are trying to cross off all the Caches in the area, to have lots of “Smiling Faces” on our Geoache.com account!

Along the way we are able to see more of Bundaberg, discovering places we have never seen before. And learning along the way – we homeschool with what we see and do as we are out and about. Learning all day long, the best way to homeschool.

Some Of The Geocaches We Have Found ::

We won’t share the exact locations cause we don’t want to spoil it all for you, but we will show the pictures of our finds.

Bundaberg War Nurses Memorial

With Geocaching we are seeing more of Bundaberg then we ever thought possible. From Places we drive past and don’t pay much attention to, and then to places we have been to before but didn’t really take much notice.

Bundaberg War Nurses Memorial is opposite Bundaberg Base Hospital, a place we have been to many times but really didn’t take the time out of our day to walk across to the park and see what was there.

And yeah we found the cache, it only took us two attempts, and many walking around in circles trying to work out where it was, before we thought outside the square and found it in the most usual place!

Bundaberg Lions Remembrance Park

I had time between appointments yesterday {was in town on Business} and thought I would try and find as many Geocaches as possible. Mind you I didn’t have my sweet boy with me so it wasn’t as much fun, and a few of the caches were set up for kids so I will have to go back with him another time!

There was one Cache that I was keen to find because it was at the Bundaberg Lions Remembrance Park

Baldwin Swamp Bundaberg

Yesterday we meet with other homeschooling Mums/Kids at Baldwin Swamp Bundaberg for more GEOcaching fun, along with much needed exercise for us Mums, and an wonderful way to burn off energy for the kids. It was rather warm day but at the same time it was so beautiful.

I actually never even knew that Baldwin Swamp was there! I have been to the Sugar Train Playground. And I have seen the signs pointing to the landscaped bush walking areas but have never ventured that far. I think in the three hours that we were there we nearly covered ever walking track that’s available! If not we were so very close 🙂
