Spent a few hours down at Surfers Paradise on the 23rd September, was great to be on the beach. The water was a tad cool, but was an enjoyable time. Had lunch at one of the street Cafe's with family. It has change since l was there last, always new buildings going up up up.
Headed on to Greenbank Army Barracks, where one of our Sons was on Parade, after a week long camp for Cadets. There were over 600 Cadets on the camp that week. They do a lot more than learn how to march. They form friendships that could last a life time, they learn how to be part of a team effort and how to problem solve. Sleep out in tents with out Mum cleaning up after them. Spend a night or two camping out in the bush with out the comforts of the tent. The chance to learn how to handle weapons with respect, was given to a few. Overall a great time was had.
Of course Mum was not forgotten, because when he step back in the house the next day, the washing was handed over. Whilst he went for a long need sleep. lol.
