My family missed seeing our son at Christmas except via Skype as he was in Canada on a school exchange having a ball! So we decided to meet in Stanthorpe roughly halfway between Brisbane and Glen Innes as the Easter Orienteering Championships were being held around there this year. It was a lovely weekend together and the weather warm and nights mild, though a bit hot for running round in the bush.
We sampled some local wines, and the delicious strawberries, had a very nice Italian buffet at Anna's restaurant and took in the view from the lookout and the three orienteering sites at Applethorpe, Dalveen and near Pratten via Warwick. We stayed together in a large house ("Bonaways") on a big block in town and it worked out well. It was big enough for the bike, totem tennis and remote controlled cars!
