Holiday time

Our three kids have finished school now and to enjoy 'Catholic Week' we are heading to one of my favourite places- Mon Repos- with several other families.
Mon Repos (french for place of rest) is near Bundaberg and is home to one of the largest loggerhead turtle rookeries in the South Pacific Ocean.
We have stayed here several times and have really enjoyed the laid back, low key, unpretentious, nature of the place.
The turtle experience is always wonderful. Ella is very much Bindi Irwinish so she aspires to work  as a ranger in the turtle conservation centre every time we visit.
We have only seen baby turtles hatching, so am hoping to see Mama turtle lay some eggs this time.
A bit of quiet relaxing time with family and friends before the Xmas madness begins. Lovely.

Early morning turtle tracks from previous night and a daytime turtle escapee.
