    We are going back to Lady Elliott Island!! I am so excited - we loved it so much there! It's less than 2 weeks away so I haven't done a timer...

    We are taking the train to Hervey Bay - will take about 5 hours, then seeing my friend who lives in Hervey Bay and overnighting at a hotel there. My friend is soo excited!! She boards with a lady whose son is the same age as Gareth so hopefully they will get on well.

    Then light plane over to Lady Elliott for 2 nights, where we will hopefully see lots of turtles again. And do lots of snorkelling to work off the Christmas excess! :transport015::tort1:

    Then back on the plane to Hervey Bay and another overnight there, and the train home next morning.

    Gareth has wanted to do the train trip since he was a little boy so I hope it lives up to his expectations!

    I hope the weather is good - it's been so miserably wet lately - we shall see....
    :shrk:

    It sure made going back to work today bearable!
    Next trip - Bali! (March 2015)

    That sounds like a wonderful visit! I'll too add my plea for photos of the turtles and the entire holiday!

    Have a wonderful time. I'm sure your boy will love the train ride!

    Hoping that will help the weather!

    I think that will have to be it for Carpe Diems if we are to have enough funds for the big end of year trip!

    We do have a trip to Melbourne for a weekend in March so that could count?
