Good bye Trish & Adam

As is typical in this remote outback town with a transient population, two of our dear friends are getting ready to leave and start a new adventure in a new town. They have been here for 10 years, working in a tough field and it is time for a change.

They were the first people in town to invite the Wotherspoon's over for a BBQ, when we arrived 2 years ago, and they have been inviting us over ever since. We have shared lots with these two lovely people, great camping holidays, road trips, weekends helping other people move before collapsing in swimming pools at the end of the day, family dramas, work dramas and lots of other good things. It will be sad to see them go. We will miss them.

This weekend we invited them over for a BBQ with our friends. It was the perfect day, plenty of food, conversation and laughs. One of those days that start with lunch and stretch into dinner before we think about what the time is.

Ofcourse, the day wouldn't have been complete with out a cake. A BBQ novelty cake. This one was a challenge as the cake seemed to be so fresh it was falling apart in my hands as I carved. I left it alone in the fridge for a few hours and it seemed to behave itself again! The kids at the party loved the sausages and kebabs. I had to wrestle a sausage off my son, oh the sugar!

Great fun. Good bye guys, see you on the road.
