Lake Moogerah Qld
I am afraid that I am getting a bit slack with this blogging thingo I see it has been another week gone by since I last blogged. Over the Anzac Holiday weekend we had several visitors to the park. Among them was a lovely couple from Wynnun near Brisbane doing a shake down trip in their new motorhome. Mal and Geraldine are heading off in a couple of weeks, she had only a few days left to work and then they would be on their way. We spent Saturday evening with them, drinking and talking and Geraldine made scones for mornng tea on Sunday. Saturday we drove over to Ipswich to do some shopping and to catch up again with Bill and Leanne.
Sunday the family descended upon us from Brisbane. We all drove out to Lake Moogerah for a picnic lunch. This is a lovely spot with views of the lake and nearby Mt Edward and the Moogerah Dam Wall. There was quite a bit of birdlife that also joined us for lunch.
Mainly kookaburras and other cheeky friends. The little ones enjoyed themselves running around on the grassed areas near the water and we all watched the many water skiers enjoying the very pleasant weather out on the lake.
After lunch we crossed over the Dam Wall and some of the family followed the summit walk for 3kms.
Bill and myself only walked a short way, and while they were away we ventured down to the lower picnic area. This again was a lovely quieter spot.
There were many families out for the day. We drove over to the other side of the lake to check out the boat ramp and caravan park. Maybe in the future it will be kept in mind for a holiday spot.
We drove back down a different way and went through Mt Alford and Dugandan. They left then to make the trip back home
