Boxing day morning, we got up and got all our camping gear together.We camped with 2 other families, but others came for day visits and some came for over night stays. Unfortunately Gwynfor was at work most of the time, but he would drive in and out to work, because it is not too far out of town, although it feels like you are, which is perfect.We all had our own tents and camper trailers, but we had a great common area and common kitchen where everyone had their chairs ,tables etc. Blacky built a great bar that had the best view in the place,the big truck tarp was also great for shade and on the odd time ,shelter from the rain.
As you can see, it’s a pretty hard life, all the relaxing. But with relaxing comes drinkies, and drink o’clock comes around fairly early while camping. I think that’s what makes it exhausting, is the drinks and late nights, and the fact that no one has told the birds, that we want to sleep in…….those kookaburras are quite loud.
As you can see the kids have a ball ,and just go all day long, needless to say they sleep very well and are ready for bed early.Which leaves us adults lots of adult time. We had a few really cool board games that we played, usually girls against boys, which as you can imagine turned out to be quite competitive, and lots of joyful abuse was being hurled at each other.
My 3 little nephews came down to camp and loved the water. Their older brother Keeh came and stayed with us for about 4 nights, he enjoyed doing things that he doesn’t get to do in the city (where he lives).
These are some other common sites that you see cruising down the river in front of our camp, as well as skiers and wakeboarders, and some pretty dam hot boats.
Always great times, and good to get back to basics.
