Paddle time! We can't wait to be spending more time outdoors when we hit the road in Bronte the bus. Indeed, this is what the boys' 'classroom' will look like. Lots of outdoors play, exploration and opportunities for natural learning! We've been out for a few paddles in our local Brisbane waterways ... the boys love exploring the mangroves and estuaries and finding little secluded beaches. At a squeeze, we can fit the whole family in, so nobody misses out! This is us in some of our favourite local paddle spots in our @kayaks2fish. Happy weekend everyone!

A few snaps from our winter getaway to visit Sam's parents in Binginwarri, South Gippsland. We put down our phones for a while, read books, walked in the forest, enjoyed homemade soups, celebrated my 44th birthday, caught up on lots of sleep and tried our best to stay warm! It was a wonderful break for everyone. We're back in Brisbane now and I'm doing my best to find the mental energy and motivation to get our bus finished in the next few months. ~ Keiran.

The weekend wrap. Lots of family time spent outdoors, enjoying some gorgeous winter weather (Queensland style). We enjoyed a family paddle through the Boondall Wetlands in our new @kayaks2fish kayak (yep, we managed to all squeeze into the one kayak!). We spent a lazy afternoon down along the Sandgate foreshore, whilst the kids played on the beach and ran around on the tidal flats at sunset. We enjoyed a sunny Sunday morning by the water and photographing my favourite tree at Brighton. And, for balance, I spent Sunday afternoon and evening in Bronte the bus, getting some more of the 24v wiring done.

All set up in Bronte the bus at Pottsville North Holiday Park. We created a nice outdoor space beside the bus with our @oztrailaustralia camping gear. Eventually we'll get a proper motorhome awning and some window awnings, but the gazebo is proving great for longer stays like this one. As you can see in the aerial shots, there was also plenty of room at Pottsville North @tweedcoastholidayparks for the kids to play!

The boys and I fell in love with Cabarita Beach on our recent Tweed Coast adventure. Situated just a ten minute drive north of our motorhome site at Pottsville North @tweedcoastholidayparks, we made a number of visits to the beach and headland at Cabarita. Can you see Nana and the boys on the beach in the first picture?

Kicking back in the winter sun with Bronte the bus, the boys and Nana at Boyds Bay Holiday Park. This quiet and relaxed park is only a short drive from so many of our Tweed Coast favourites including Fingal Head lighthouse, Duranbah and Point Danger. We had a wonderful time exploring this part of the coast with @tweedcoastholidayparks.

Ice cream time in Bronte the bus! We had such a wonderful time on our recent Tweed Coast holiday. It was our first chance to test out the bus and to see how 'bus life' worked for us as a family. Needless to say we were all pretty happy with the experience. The interior layout worked well for us. Here's a few more pictures of the interior, captured during our stay at Pottsville. Now it's back to reality. And time to knuckle down and finish the project. I've got quite a list of jobs to get done yet before we're ready to move into the bus full-time!

Our last day of holidays by the beach in our shakedown journey in #brontethebus. She is very comfortable, and will be eminently liveable when we get a few final essentials sorted. None of us wanted to leave. In fact our littlest guy declared he would like to live at Hastings Point! Here's to more short journeys in our near future!

Also, first beach through the kitchen window shot!

The boys were super excited to welcome @littleearthstories home after her epic sailing trip and ten days away. They drew pictures, designed a 'welcome home' sign, and made a beautiful shell necklace for their Mum. On her first day back, the boys played 'tour guides' and couldn't wait to show Sam all of the beaches that we'd discovered on our @tweedcoastholidayparks adventures.

Morning rituals. These two like to start their day with a little walk outside. They wander around like two old men, inspecting the new day, watching the bird life and taking in their surroundings. We're camped at Pottsville North (thanks to @tweedcoastholidayparks) which is perfect for their morning walk. We're on a powered site (suitable for buses) in a large grassy field, with plenty of open space for the boys to roam. It's quiet and peaceful, except for the distant roar of ocean waves and the hauntingly beautiful call of the park's resident bush stone curlews.
