Long time no write. We HAD A WEEKEND AWAY! And I left computers and all electronics at home.
We went up to a lovely holiday house in Springbrook, the hinterland above the Gold Coast. It was a lovely weekend where it rained more than I can remember in my lifetime (something like 400+mm in one day) but we were cosy inside with a fire, except when we ventured out for a few short walks in the rain. Which wasn’t too bad under the canopy of the rainforest. You really enjoyed it. It was fun to look across the valleys to all the waterfalls, which were of course in full flow.
Your first bushwalking: a good experience.
