Just a quick update on our whereabouts. We vacated our Brisbane ‘residence’ yesterday and headed north to Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast. It was not an overly strenuous drive but it felt good to be heading north. We are staying at the Cotton Tree Holiday Park and are about 50 metres from the beach. We were always led to believe the Sunshine Coast was exactly that but since leaving Brisbane it has been ‘bucketing’ down and showing no signs of letting up. Still – no worries – its all part of the experience.
Weather permitting we intend a visit to Steve Irwin’s zoo tomorrow and plan to finish the day with a quiet couple at the Ettamogah Pub at Aussie World.
We received some very sad news today that our friend and shipmate, Denis Kean, passed away yesterday. Denis was a Committee member of the Royal New Zealand Navy Communications Association and a stalwart of the Association itself. Rest in peace Denis – you will always be remembered.
