Wollongong To Cowra

On Saturday we had to be on a Farm outside of Cowra, and I so wanted to be there before lunch time…..but Kids, Hubby and Travelling -Stopping too many times along the way we made it by 1.30ish!

Wollongong To Cowra ::

David used our Camp 6 Book to plan our Trip {we have Camp 7 But Still Prefer the smaller size of the Camp 6 Book} and we set off about  7.00am, only an hour after we had planned to leave. Yeah our Plans need to be flexible when we have kids!

We drove through Robertson, then onto Goulburn, stopping at Yass and then heading up to Cowra….we were staying on a farm 30 minutes out of Cowra.

Bringing Him Home

With our Second Son being over in Perth, all by himself, I wanted to bring him home for David’s Birthday Surprise…..So for weeks on end there was numerous phone calls, emails, texts and secret planning. Its the very first time that I have had to keep something so very quiet for so very long, and the very first time I have had to make up stories of what our second son was going to do over the long weekend!

He nearly didn’t even make it cause he was almost not able to get time off over the four days.

Bringing Him Home ::

I booked his flight through Flight Centre {huge issues with that but that’s for another story!!} and he arrived in Sydney Friday afternoon. Our oldest Woody Son picked him up from the Airport and took him straight out to the farm. Where we were heading to on the Saturday, to meet our oldest son Girlfriend Family.

Happy Birthday David

Today is your Birthday, which seems really weird because I am actually sitting here writing this blog post for you yesterday {which is today at this very minute!!!}

Confused yet? Yeah me too….

But you see I can’t actually write this on your Birthday because we are going to be in a car on the road travelling for about 4 hours before we reach our destination. And our destination has no power, no phone service, no running water and is something I am so looking forward to.

Weird way to spend your Birthday…

But anyway Happy Birthday David!

Why Will Be Offline?

Well its simple really….David, being who he is, will do anything for his family. And that means travelling half the morning to be with his oldest son and to meet his oldest son Girlfriend Family…whose Dad also happens to have a Birthday in the same Month {and whose party we are going to} then that is what he will do.

Bedford Motorhome Seatbelts

I have been asked a few times about our seating arrangement and our seatbelts. And I normally reply by email to each question {s} so I thought that I would blog about it so that we could share, with our readers, what we have inside our Bedford Comair Motorhome.

But PLEASE you must get your seat belts and your seats approved by Professional engineers and those in the know regards the law – so that your seat belts will be approved for registration, as well as safety reasons.

Bedford Motorhome Seatbelts ::

We have seven seat belts in our Bedford Motorhome {drivers seat has one} and each Seat Belt is bolted into the Frame Work underneath our Motorhome lounges. We have had each seat belt looked at and has been approved as being safe. The seat belts were bought from repco, and the Seats were made by David {he used the Department of Queensland Motor Registry for the Specific Requirements of how to make the frame work strong enough}

We put together a Video of David building the Lounges to see how strong they are!

Quirky Cow Teas

We love eating as healthy as possible and we love organic products! We came across “Quirky Cow Gifts:” Store in Kiama awhile ago. And now I will drive down there just for their Quirky Cow Teas – Herbal teas for every needs. Actually I don’t have any photos of the inside of the store, nor any photos of the outside of the store. Which means that I must drive down there soon to fix that issue. But I do have pics of my favorite teas.

Please don’t ask me to chose a favorite tea..they are all my favorites! But these are a few that I do buy on a regular basis….

Save Our Saltmarsh

When we had to stay parked at David’s Work because we had broken down wanted a change of scenery,  Cameron, Kyle and I would go off exploring the Oak Flats {Wollongong New South Wales} surrounding area as much as possible, as well as exploring more of Sydney {that’s when we were staying with our oldest son}!….only because we couldn’t have Kyle playing outside in the industrial area because so many big trucks would come flying down the street!

On one of our walks we found a “Walk way”and a information board that explained what the area was all about. Guess you could say that I am homeschooling myself alone with our two boys!

Manly New South Wales

A little while ago – can’t remember which weekend – we visited the Australia National Maritime Museum in Darling Harbour and then we jumped onto a Ferry and went to Manly New South Wales.

We had a mission….one have not completed as yet. We want to find David’s Grandad’s Memorial Chair that is somewhere in Manly over looking the ocean. Sounds easy right? Wrong – you try looking for a Seat with a Memorial Plaque written on it when its a very beautiful day and everyone is out and about. Every single Chair was taken up by someone sitting there, over looking the ocean and enjoying the view.

So it means we will have to try and make another trip back as soon as we can to again search for the Memorial Seat.

Went For A Walk And Got Lost

The sun was out today and I was keen to explore the area of where we are parked up! We went down a “No Through Road” and found a foot path, with a bridge and then kept walking and walking…..through long grasses, over creek beds, through mud, over dead trees, along path ways others have taken, along patches of grass that no one had stepped on before, trying to jump over water {yeah I slipped and got more muddy then if I had walked through it}

Basically we Went For A Walk And Got Lost!

Found Ponies…

Another Great Spot for Kyle to return to for fishing….

Stumbled upon a Teenagers Cubby Spot {Or teenagers Retreat} who let us know that we were heading in the right direction to get back to the Industrial Area.

Australia National Maritime Museum

While Cameron, Kyle and I stayed in Sydney David joined us one Sunday – meeting us at Central Station where we then jumped onto the light rail to head to Darling Harbour, to the ANMM

We have a yearly pass to the Australia National Maritime Museum, which is such good value because we have been there many times, and plan to go a few more times before leaving New South Wales!

We have been before to see the Vikings Display – which Kyle remembers because he so wanted to buy a Viking Helmet!!!

We  make sure we go on Sundays by Train because its “Family Fun Day” – which means we can travel by Train, Buses or Fairy for $2.50….we usually do something in Sydney and then catch a train to Mainly.

Red Point Furniture Restoration

While we were walking up and down Port Kembla main street {searching for a toilet, finding one at the back of the pub!} we stubble across this amazing Antique store called Red Point Furniture Restoration.

Kyle must have a part of me…..he was the one to talk me into going back to look inside. And boy am I glad we did….
