A fabulous end to the day was pre dinner drinks with some new friends Aaron & Teresa and their girls and then went off to the café at the caravan park for dinner with them. Bill was a little inebriated and we sang happy birthday to him by putting a candle in a piece of garlic bread. Happy Birthday Bill xoxo

Billy Boys Birthday! Started the day with traditional Pressies on the double bed! Little bit different than big King size bed at home (the whole caravan is smaller than our bedroom!) Bill was thrilled with his Akubra & Billabong Jacket (he had chosen both!!) then off to Mataranka Springs. We were quite happily having a browse in the gift shop when a lady let me know to watch out as she'd just seen a "Big Brown" on the road. Now I don’t know how many of you know but Bills one & only fear is “snakes”. So off we go down the paved track to the springs with him absolutely sh**** himself that he’d see a snake! All good we didn’t see anything & the springs were absolutely gorgeous paved edges with just the natural sandy base. Next stop was Bitter Springs not nearly as nice (we thought) as they’d had quite a lot of rain & the River was very full and it is very much a natural setting with reeds & many fallen branches (lots of places for those snakes to hide!!) So we had the traditional family vote & decided it was back to the pool we go!
