Gympie- Queensland- Australia

Gympie Gold Town.

In a couple of days Ray and I are off to Thailand..
Yes, golf again.
We have wonderful friends house sitting for us.

I have decided to share the town where I live.
I wish the video included our bird life..
But we who live here, tend to take it for granted.

At the town park at sunset, hundreds of Lorakeet's, Corella's
and White Cockatoo's fly in to roost for the night.
The noise is deafening...

So, here is my town..
We live approx 50 kilometers (31miles) to the Pacific Ocean.
That is, Tin Can Bay and Rainbow Beach.

"O Lord, you have searched me and known me!
You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar.
You search out my path and my lying down and are acquainted with all my ways.
Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether.
You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me." (Psalm 139: 1-5)

White Cockatoos Nesting Down For The Night...


  1. Someday, if the Lord tarries, I want to visit Australia. So many lovely places there.

  2. Well, when you do you can visit and stay with us a while..

  3. Great Video, thanks for sharing it looks like a wonderful place to live.
    Enjoy your break in Thailand!
    Love and prayers,

    1. Thank you Ann, I am looking forward to Thailand. Last time I went with my daughter and it was all about shopping. This time its sightseeing.xx

  4. Oh I am as Shelly, would love to visit Australia...I have several Internet Friends from there is beautiful are blessed

    1. Anywhere thats home is good. Just wanted to share mine with all my friends.

  5. What a wonderful place to live. . . sandie

  6. What a wonderful looking place to live! I have missionary friends who live in Sydney, I think. Jack and Mary Margaret Morris were our predecessors as missionaries to Kenya, and later (when I was their Field Director) they lived in Gabaronne, Botswana. The thought occurred that you might look them up sometime if you are in Sydney. I could ask them for their phone number if you are ever going there. "Pastor Jack" as he is known, and Mary, would treat you with graciousness. Have a great trip to the golf course. Is this something you also play, or only Ray who is the golfer?

    1. Hi Fred, that is really great of you... We don't go to Sydney very often, its too far and very hectic there. But, if we should go again I will get that number off you. Only Ray is the golfer..

  7. If you had paid for my plane ticket...
    I would have gladly house sit for you.
    Oh well!!!
    I swear I will one day touch the land down under!!
    One day...

    1. Ha Ha, your such joker. You cat wouldn't like my dogs...Hope you get here one day.

  8. Wishing you both a safe and enjoyable holiday!
    God bless.

  9. I loved the video! What a wonderful travelogue for your city! One of these days I'll get to explore a bit more in your site...and I will look forward to doing that. I did scroll down a little - and saw all the snakes.... Yikes!

  10. Graça e paz querida, vim aqui te desejar um ótimo final de semana.
    Deus abençoe cada vez mais.

  11. Hi Crystal,
    How a wonderful looking place to live, Crystal!!
    You are lucky to live in a beautiful country like Australia.
    I would love to visit Australia one day.
    I see you are going to Thailand with your husband, Ray.
    I wish both of you the very best time over there.
    You all need a good break, darling. It's Summer time...
    I'll see you when you come back.
    I'm sure you'll show many pics to us about your trip to Thailand.
    Have a blessed time, Crystal with all your loved ones!!

  12. We lived in Gladstone for five years back in the '70s but only managed to drive into Gympie a couple of times during those years. It is a lovely town. Thank you for sharing the photos and do have a wonderful and safe time in Thailand.

  13. Beautiful Psalms, beautiful town...your are indeed blessed. Enjoy Thailand
