Tuesday's Treasures

We have a block of land - 55 acres near Bundaberg, Queensland.  We have a shed on it - hopefully a house one day.  We go there as often as we can - usually school holidays and long weekends.  It is so peaceful.  This is the view from outside the kitchen.  When I have my early morning cup of tea, I look out at this.  Some mornings there are kangaroos.  Lots of birds - kookaburras, magpies, some parrots.  We're finding that by taking our pet birds up they are calling other birds in.  One afternoon I saw an Eastern Rosella - the prettiest birds!  It's 5 kms around our boundary - so lots of lovely spaces to walk.

Wish we were there now.  Hopefully, one day we can leave suburbia and live there permanently - but kids' needs get in the way!!

Cheers

Marg

What a beautiful view. The grasses look fantastic. We had a holiday unit at Woodgate Beach for years. Not any more but we love Bundaburg and will probably end up there when we have to downsize a bit.

You will get there. It took me almost 20 years to get to my piece of rurality. Of course I wish I had MORE land but until I use what I've got it is more than I need. Family needs do have to be considered, but after living further out for a while your kids will be the first to say you should have moved sooner.
Meanwhile - enjoy your visits and knowing your dream is waiting for you.
