Today mostly involved driving. We are making our way down Highway 1 (Bruce Highway for this portion).

We left the Caravan Park at Marlborough around 10:00. When we stopped for coffees, Rob found sushi and picked some up for lunch. Then, we stopped at a rest area and ate around 2:00. Shortly after, we had a Skype call over Rob's mobile phone tethering to the laptop while driving along the highway. Technology is truly amazing.

A very exciting part of the day was having to pull over onto the grass to let this wide load by:
Then, we drove to just north of Bundaberg to the Oakwood Caravan Park in Gin Gin where we arrived at 4:00, the earliest we've ever stopped for the night. We took advantage and relaxed with our books after starting a quick load of wash. The kids enjoyed playing outside and running around the caravan park.
