Hervey Bay Qld

The Lorikeets in our back yard

We arrived in Hervey Bay on Tuesday and are happily entrenched on a vacant block next to our friend's Rod and Catherine. Hervey Bay is quite a big city, originally made up of several villages which have since joined up to make one. The beaches are divine, the weather great.

They are actually filming here in the bay. They are filming "the Reef", we watched them for awhile last night and the only star I can point out is the guy who played Carl Williams in underbelly. We took some photos so I will add them to this blog later. We visited the supermarket "Aldi's yesterday and they stock some interesting items. and quite cheap too. I also visited patchwork heaven, there is a great patchwork shop here in town called Dew Drop In, they stock some lovely fabrics and bits & pieces. There were some great handbag patterns I very much like. Though truth be told I probably have them already at home. Tomorrow we are joining a local chapter and going to the races. It should be interesting.
