Happy Easter everyone. Wasn’t the weather fantastic! Our guests made the most of the weather visiting the Sunshine Coast, Ipswich, Brisbane, theme parks and even an evening swim in the netted area in south Moreton Bay at Jacobs Well.

We may have been slow hanging the BBQ but it went into overtime very quickly. We burn it in the first day then the next day we got the fires burning under the bbq plate and billy. It is quite an art pouring the billy, but once mastered what a great cuppa. Fortunately no-one was home when Murray had his record selection playing.

By the time everyone arrived with their selection for the BBQ I had some 70s disco playing. Seems we may need to build a bigger dance hall.

We fired up the BBQ again for brekky. I think the eggs came straight from the chickens! There is nothing like cooking toast on an open fire, especially on our ‘LIN’ toaster. After a quick brekky and chat, couple of hours, everyone headed off for their day. North, South and West. Some all the way to Sydney for a day’s work the next day.

Thank you everyone for staying and those that didn’t we hope your Easter was enjoyable and as memorable as ours.

Some visitors came and said hello yesterday.

I liked them as they spoke to me and it was not a bark. The dogs are normally noisy.

Looked very inviting yesterday afternoon.

I have been at Albert River B&B a few times over the last few weeks having coffee and talking about what information should go on the new website and how to setup some new photos. Sue and Murray say they like it exactly the way it is and comments like “It is our paradise as it is so why should we change it?” and “We don’t want to false advertise by making it look like any other place”.

During my visits I was surprised by rabbits running across the road right near the driveway. These rabbits are not running away but going from one side to the other to get different grass. They do not seem afraid that a car is coming at them, they just move as they see fit. The thirty odd geese at Albert River B&B are the same. They spend most of the day foraging and then walk in a single line across the road to the neighbours for an hour or two. Then they walk back. The wallabies are a law on to themselves and move through the area as they want.

The sunrise comes early bringing all sorts of birdlife. The sunsets are something everyone has to see. The night sky is full of stars even though this place is 30 minutes from Surfers Paradise and about the same from Brisbane. You might as well be in a secluded valley in the nearby Hinterlands.

The roads leading to Albert River B&B takes five or so minutes from the main highway to travel, so there is no major slog to get here. You go from 110Klm an hour to beer, wine and relaxation in maybe seven minutes once you take the turnoff.

Now I have a question for you. What would you say is the reason you enjoyed your stay at Albert River B&B? What do you remember about it? What did you say to friends and family about your time? Sue and Murray want to tell people about their Paradise. They would rather have words from visitors rather than a marketing guy. Leave a comment here or on Facebook and help them out. It will make my job easier too.

Oops, that is my mums request, really just a forbidden biscuit would do. And a prayer to make my ear better so they would stop fussing over me. In fact if they would just keep that pesky Logan away from me I probably wouldn’t have had a sore ear in the first place.

What were they thinking making me share my home with HER. I am middle aged; I just want to lie around. HER…..Logan….she wants to play, all the time. Who in their right mind wants to play when one can sleep? SHE really needs to learn about the better things in life. Like I said, sleeping. There are so many cool spots to lay one’s head. And of course there is eating, if I put on my appropriate sad face we have so many lovely humans that come to stay and they love to give me yummy things. They love me more than that Logan; she is too busy playing with birds and butterflies to get lovely pats.

I suppose I will have to play with HER, just as soon as I finish my nap.

Thanks in advance

Albert the Dog.

What would be better is not being able to see the Albert River because of heavy rain. We have spent the week cleaning out our dry dams in preparation for the rains to come.

Albert Sunset

Fortunately for our house full of guests the rains didn’t come on Saturday. They all came home dry and dusty from their big day out at the ‘red hot summer tour’. Featuring rock and rolls best, Jacobs Well came alive with people from far and wide.

After a breakfast of pancakes on the verandah everyone headed north. And no, not all parties were together.

I haven’t heard who made it to Biloela first! Probably the Jeep. Nor have I heard how awesome my pancakes were…..come on guys…. I know you are reading this!

Albert River Bed & Breakfast has a vacancy for Easter!

Enjoy the peace and quiet in our relaxing surroundings. Throw a line in and try your luck. Ring to secure your booking.

Thanks to Mahmoud for our latest photos. There will be more to follow. Mahmoud and Faye and young Zachareah claim to have had a great time when they joined us for a camp oven cook up and spit. The weather was kind to us allowing a feast to be cooked to celebrate a 40th birthday. Even sunday was fine for a spot of fishing, eels were the most exciting catch. Caused lots of squeals of excitement, or at least we assumed it was excitement. After airport shuttles to brisbane and gold coast airports it was sad to see an end to our hectic but fantastic weekend. A big thanks to Uncle Bob for all his fire duties and general running around. We won’t tell anyone that you caught an eel.

Well done Ben for catching a crab. We hoped he was good eating for you! We trust

you enjoyed your stay.
