Tanya and Steve's Camping Trip - Friday 5th to Sunday 7th July 2002

With their friends Mark, Nat, Luke and Michelle, they headed off to the Lake Tinaroo camping areas for a weekend of relaxation and "the great outdoors"!!!

Lake Tinaroo is about one and a half hours drive west of Cairns on the Atherton Tablelands, and on Sunday 7th, Geoff and Sharon went for a drive and called in to say hello

- in a lot of the photos at the camp site, people are looking down - WHY??? - well, the fire had everyone's attention!!! - when Sharon and I arrived, this group of "bushies" (led by Steve and Mark) were trying to get a decent cooking fire going so they could all have some breakfast - we left after about 1 1/2 hours, and they were just then throwing the sausages, eggs and bacon on the grill!!! - ninety minutes of smoke, runny noses, bleary eyes, and burnt fingers!!! - It was fun to watch!!!


On the way we called into ANZAC Park, which is on the Kennedy Highway at Mareeba - has dozens of Memorials and Plaques dedicated to the Australian and New Zealand Forces during World Wars One and Two

Sharon in the Park - nice photos

Before going to see Tanya and Steve, we stopped for a look at the Tinaroo Dam wall
