Five go off in a caravan

Toward the end of last year we went on a little caravan adventure around sunny QLD. We spent almost 7 weeks away from home and mostly headed wherever the road lead us. We didn't have much of a plan and we just enjoyed the break from routine and being a bit carefree. We crammed a lot into our 7 weeks and I thought I'd share a few snaps as well as the cushion I made last week as a little reminder of our time away.

Camel Ride, Lighthouse Beach, Port Macquarie
Seaworld, the touch pool
The Maheno, Fraser Island
Seaworld, dolphin encounter, Ollie-second from right, Bella, standing. That cheeky dolphin kept splashing water on her glasses.
Fraser Island
Movie World, Gold Coast, watching the street parade
Australia Zoo, Beerwah
The Great Barrier Reef
And another
Feeding wild dolphins in Tin Can Bay-possibly my favourite thing!
Strawberry picking near Maroochydore
Strangler Fig, Fraser Island
Good Morning 1770, taken inside the caravan

Finally, the cushion!!!

My beautiful friend gifted me this wonderful book, another little reminder of our trip.

Boo says she 'bags' reading it first but I'm thinking after that I might  upcycle it to a picture frame or fill it with our holiday snaps. Should I? Could you? I don't think I can. I want to though.

Boo can finish reading it first, but of COURSE you can! I thought the title was perfect! Maybe you could make a paper garland for the caravan using some of the book pages too. :)

I love those pics. There are lots I haven't seen before and they're a wonderful snapshot of your very special holiday!

Oh, and the cushion! Such a gorgeous souvenir of the holiday!
