Australia Day 14 – An Otherwise Normal Day

Distance Travelled: 125 km

Steps Taken: 6643


Today marks two weeks in Australia.  At this point, most people have had a nice long vacation and are ready to head back home.  We, on the other hand, still have 4 weeks in Australia and another 4 weeks in New Zealand.  The span of time alone is almost daunting.

Today we took a little break and had a “normal” day.  We didn’t start our day with this plan, we had actually planned to do a long drive!  As we came into Rockhampton, we saw a mall that was open and needed some lunch.  Well, one thing turned into another and this was our day…

It started off like most days with some driving.

We passed by some interesting signs ( I just can’t get over the signs here!)

Day 14 09

We learned that we have entered into the Tropic of Capricorn.  A very interesting latitude that is shared with places like Chile, Southern Brazil and South Africa.

Day 14 16

I had tried wearing Scarlet backpack style, she settled down quickly, but lunch came so quick that we didn’t spend much time with it.

Lunch, by the way, was DELICIOUS!


Walking around this mall we found Kmart!

Roland quickly grabbed himself a basket and off he went!  No parent was invovled in this activity, this was all Roland!

Day 14 28

After doing a little shopping we went to the movie theater just in time to see the new Smurf movie.

Day 14 38

It was such a nice treat to just sit and relax for a few hours.

Day 14 42

We found a place right outside of Rockhampton to stay for the night and even picked up a pizza on the way out of town.   Dominos had this fantastic board so you know what stage your order is in. 🙂
