Moranbah to Cape Hillsborough
Cape Hillsborough Travel Blog› entry 4 of 23 › view all entries
We had arranged adjoining accommodation in the Cape Hillsborough National Park Resort. The rooms were only a stones throw from the beach, but the quality wasnâ€™t worth the money we had paid, very dated and not maintained very well, but the position was good. After unpacking we sat and had a drink while the kids played, Jon and Liz have 3 boys aged 5, 4 and 16 months. The two eldest and Reagan play really well together which gave us a chance to catch up. Jon and I met 4 years ago when we started studying the same Uni degree and found we had a lot in common and although his family lived over 300 kilometres we met late in 2002 and we have remained friends since. Jon and I have done several subjects together during the course of our degree have just completed our second project together, we can often get talking â€˜shopâ€™ which bores our wives a little, so we try to do it when they arenâ€™t around.
During the afternoon we took the kids for a swim and then after Jon and I cooked some meat on the BBQ we all sat down and ate together. After we got the kids to bed we played a game and after the girls went to bed, Jon and I consumed a few more beers and talked â€˜shopâ€™. The night was briefly interrupted by a poisonous snake which Reagan and I almost stood on, but after recovering from the shock of that it we had a very enjoyable night. The next morning we said our goodbyes and began the next leg of our trip.
