Sorry guys! It's been too long!
I'm in Gladstone, it's pretty and nice, it's also quite warm. We've had a few days of 32 degrees Celsius. today it was 27C before 8am!
I have to say, I'm missing the tasmanians (not that they ever actually read this blog!)
I've found a couple of nice coffee places that do nice food and nice coffee in the area.
While I was in Rockhampton today (about 1h30 north) I had the nicest breakfast! It was Raisin Toast done French style, one side dipped in egg and then fried… It sounds kinda wrong, but Oh, My, God. DELICIOUS!!!
I've had coffee with one of the locals, he seems really nice, he does a drag show in Rockhampton once a month, and his partner works with Don!
I've also met up with the fabulous and wonderful Brooke, and her equally wonderful boyfriend Matt. Brooke is a beautiful willowy blonde creature, and so much fun! We went to Rocky today to go shopping… She found/I found her some of the cutest things, nice shoes, belt, bangles, sporty clothes… I got another pair of shorts… living in the tropics has really highlighted my wardrobe's shortfall in the shorts-that-fit-me department.
So I have a couple of friends here now.
After I got back from Rocky, I was looking out my office window (my house has an office! :D) and I saw a kangaroo on the street! I raced to get my camera-phone from the kitchen, and when I got back, what I suspect is her male and their child bounded along too!
So that was really cool… they're kinda big, which is kinda scary… I'm used to wallabies, which look similar, but they're smaller, probably about the size of the joey in the picture… about knee-high, to give you a frame of reference.
Anyway! It's all going nicely!
