Next morning it was just a 10 minute drive into Kenilworth where we intend to stay a couple of weeks, to say we were astounded was an understatement, the showgrounds were very busy with two caravan clubs in their designated areas, another motorhome club taking up their area and the rest was relatively full with travelers. We know Clem the caretaker from previous visits and he saw us and came over and explained the situation, most were only here for the weekend and he suggested parking out in the middle and then choosing our space once the crowds are gone which is what we have done.
We noticed one Bushtracker parked against the fence boundary and wondered if it was anyone we knew and as i was unhooking the Ute from the Van the owner came over and started chatting like he knew us all of our lives, but this was the 1st time we had actually met, it didn't take long for the penny to drop that Steve had been following our Blog and had been told about it from another Bushtracker owner Ponce whom we met in Adelaide, or should i say he stalked us down. It's a small world when traveling, and the conversations came easy. Steve and Mary are camped next to Mick and Jenny whom they only met a week before, so that night it was a few drinks around their camp fire talking the talk.
Friday night the temperature fell dramatically and it was a chilly night, we didn't put the webasto on as we had some campers directly behind us in a small A Van and we didn't want to gas them out with the smell of diesel. Saturday morning we were up and heading to the Eumundi Markets where we spent the morning wandering around. Vickie loves it and always finds something to buy, this time she was on a mission to get some bread boards of a certain size to use as Pizza servers, this she accomplished by ordering from one of the sellers two custom made boards to be picked up next weekend. I enjoy wandering around but the stalls are always the same, even ten years ago when we 1st visited i see the same stalls and faces, sure there is the new area and some different but to me its a bit the same same, i do enjoy people watching though and its a beautiful setting under the huge Moreton Bay fig trees. The afternoon we drove to Noosa where we have been many times before, it was a mad house with traffic and people everywhere, we managed to find a car park and stopped long enough for a coffee and a quick walk along Hastings street.

Today, Sunday has been very relaxing, just a walk up the main street and a visit to the Cheese Factory, coffee in the local Cafe and the rest of the day I've been typing away on the laptop filling you all in with the exciting times of our life's, Vickie is over playing card games with the others.
We look like having the Oyster Sat and Stereo looked at on Thursday, also whilst we are here i may look at getting new batteries for the van, We have also made contact with a couple we know and are tossing the idea about of traveling to the BOG muster in Alice via the Strezlecki and Oodnadatta tracks. We will know more about that as time goes by.

No, just my idea to cover a few dents on the front of the Van :-)
