Here I am back to the daily grind of doing nothing, but doing it well, we had excellent weather while we were away, late spring can get quite hot sometimes but right up until the last afternoon it was great… I did say right up until the last afternoon!!!!!
As we approached Brisbane from about 100 kms out the sky grey dark and stormy looking, then the heavens opened up and we were caught in the heaviest rain storm either Warren or I had ever seen, with thunder and lightening all around it was all I could do to maintain 40 k/h (25 m/h) and keep a safe distance from the car ahead.
I didn’t really notice that Warren had got very quiet (and believe me he doesn’t do that often) when the rain eased for a while I glanced over to see a pasty faced Wazza, with white knuckles gripping the seat he said he would have died if he had been driving through that rain… Oh well another chance missed.
Turned out to be the worst storm that has hit Brisbane in 25 years and we came through one of the black spots, never mind, no animals were harmed in the production of this report so all is well, there was no damage in Warren's area and Gympie just got rain, no damage.
This will be another quick post before the photos and story of the trip get written, I need to unpack everything, wash heaps of clothes, restock the fridge and learn how to cook and clean again first.

The magnificent stainless steel flagpole has pride of place.
Our Capital is not just full of political Bull S**t it has a pretty fair coating of Bird S**t too.
