Saturday, June 14, 2008
We had intended on beginning this great journey on Saturday, but after such a busy week, with heaps of last minute catching up with friends, etc., our whole family was fairly zonked!
So, we have had a restful Saturday, Nat in particular has been lying around all day, letting his tummy settle down from all the excitement, and finished the packing & getting ready without any pressure, with intentions to leave tomorrow, Sunday, 15th June 2008.
Thank-you to all our dear Friends & Family who made this special time to catch up with us ... (& those we ran out of time to see)
We were fortunate to catch up with dear friends, Tan, Andrew, Lucas & Fin, Katie, Heath, Tatum & Silas, Mark, Leesa, Jordan & Micah, Kim, Jon, Amy & Vhairie, Tracey, Peter, Jesse, Tiarna & Zander, Kate & Steve, Ma, Luther, Jo, Catherine, Paula, Judy, Kerryn and all of Noah's Prep Red Class Mates & all of Nat's 3G Class Mates - this week alone (& that doesn't include all the loving phonecalls).
Mt Crosby ...
Last weekend was a wonderful opportunity to catch up with all of Anthony's family, (Ron & Shirley, Kath, Pete, Emily, Grace, Sarah & Thurston, Heather, Steve, Ellen, Robert, Gillian & Charlotte).
We all camped at Mt Crosby Allawah Scouts Grounds. We enjoyed beautiful scenery, gorgeous weather & a very special & wonderful time together.
We even had a small church service together on Sunday morning, where Lissa demonstrated ( or rather trialled) her "still-improving" Camp Oven Skills, making damper for our communion bread (also added to these Holy Sacrements, were the jam & cream!!!)
Please pray for us ...
Well, whatever we have forgotten now, who cares !!!
We ask you all that you might keep us in your prayers, for our safety, for protection over the car & caravan, & God's blessings over our family.
We hope to keep in touch now ... God Bless You Richly,
Lance & Cathy have stopped at a Caravan Park on the Stuart Highway, approx. 10 minutes from the beach.
Lance has had to work for a couple of days, doing tenders for TCS, but in the process, able to catch up with an old work colleague, Terry.
Each evening, they have discovered a new beach to take Zoe & Scruff for a walk & to watch the beautiful sunset with their dinner.
Mum & Dad also called into the replica of the We of the Never Never Homestead (the original building is nearby, but unsafe).
Also, the Grave sites of We of the Never Never are here. Very interesting.
Lovely, Natural, Shady Campgrounds ...
.... and lovely, natural facilities !!!
