The Broadwater - Gold Coast

Well no pictures of this camp spot but we stayed there for a week and two days all together. We have had an arm replaced on the roll out awning as we broke that one as soon as we got there on the Monday afternoon, fortuntely a wonderful caravan repairman came out at 5.30pm that night and fitted a new one. Several mishaps this week, firstly we flooded the toilet whilst we were filling the flush tank and the water was all over the caravan, tried to put the annexe up but failed miserably so threw it in its bag and packed it off to the daughters shed and we are travelling with the flyscreen pieces that we had made, much easuier.
We have had our portable solar panels mounted on the roof of the caravan and wired into the battery and also had a Gel battery fixed into the car to run the fridge so we don't have to keep taking it out and plugging it in (it's very heavy). We went to Super butchers and filled it up with good meat yesterday.
Thanks to our family for sharing Sunday with us it was good to see them all and the boys had a great day on the jumping castle, the swimming pool, the beach and fishing. Thanks to Elizabeth and Debs for coming to dinner on Tuesday and bringing me the special Mother's Day present that only I am allowed to drink (four bottles of red wine).
Will miss all of you but there is always skype and the telephone when we have power.
We have now arrived at Lake McDonald near Cooroy - It's a Scout Camp that also takes in Campers. It is beautiful and quiet and Stephen is going to be doing some fishing as we are here for another five days.
For all the campers out there it is no 170 in Camp 5 book and well worth a visit but it seems to have a lot of mozzies so bring insect repellant.
Will let you all know how we get on.
