It’s been a long while since I’ve done one of these posts and my sisters both did this via email over the last few days – filling each other in on what’s been going on in our lives, so I figured I should do it too and publish it as a blog post of course! Cause that’s the only way to know what is going on in the Fealy Family – read the blog or via Facebook ;-). Plus – I figured the end of February is as good a time as any to take a moment and have a think about how things have been going round these parts – the wheels have fallen off in a few areas, but doing ok in others – pretty much the norm for us I guess. The dream is to have all aspects of our life rolling along well at the same time!! Ok – so here goes – a bit of fun/procrastination for a Sunday morning! Continue reading

Guess What? We ticked another item off our ‘Must Do’ list yesterday! Emerald Creek Falls walk and swim ‘owned’ as the kids would say, meaning we did it and it was awesome :-). Can’t believe it has taken us so long to get there and definitely going again soon – swimming in the waterhole under the falls was beautiful.
Emerald Creek Falls can be found just outside Mareeba in the Dinden West Forest Reserve. You turn off the Kennedy Highway onto the signposted Tinaroo Creek Road, follow Tinaroo Creek Road for about 3 kms and then turn left into Cobra Road. From Cobra road it is all dirt and quite corrugated and steep in parts, but regular vehicles can still get out there just by taking it steady. It is unsuitable for caravans and trailers and unfortunately there is no camping. However, the day use area has wood fired bbq’s and picnic tables and there are some nice spots along the picnic area to swim with the kids. Continue reading
Ahem – interrupting our normal broadcasting – I mean blogging- service to bring you this community service announcement for your Sunday.
Go and rent ‘The Martian’ movie with Matt Damon stat. It is terrific.
Ok – I should preface this by saying that our family is a bit of a nerdy family. We aim for balance and love our sport too, but if I’m honest – we’re mostly nerdy. I love to read and blog. Matt loves all things science and maths, so really, there was no hope for our kids. Jacko is a self-confessed nerd – his nickname is ‘JT nerdzillia’ and he reads at least three books a week. All of our kids do pretty well at school.
So it’s no wonder we all loved a movie filled with chemists, biologists, physicists, astrodynamics engineers, astronaughts and NASA mission control employees. Continue reading
Hello Everyone! It’s always this time of year that sees us with very itchy feet – just wanting to be done with mangoes, avocados, backpackers and all things farm related!!! We are in a bit of a lull at Blue Sky at the moment while we wait for our avocados to be ready so we can start picking them, which means Matt and I have had some time at home together to start planning our camping holiday in July – so many places, so many options!
Anyway – with Easter coming up – I thought I’d better get my act together and tell you about Elim Beach – it is an amazing camping spot and you might just want to head there these holidays! Continue reading
Hello everyone! So, I’m feeling like a total fraud at the moment – doing lots of blogging stuff like taking on the volunteer role of ‘Country to Canberra Blogging Team Director’ which I’ve already told you about in this post, but there is not a lot of blogging going on here, on the actual “Are We There Yet?” blog! Aaaaargh, I know, I know – I have to make time for the stuff that matters most – the important things – which this blog is – but there just seems to be sooooooo much important stuff going on in the Fealy Family these days.
Anyway – I thought an update post was loooooooong overdue, so time to fill you in on what’s been happening in the Fealy Family/Blue Sky Produce world. Continue reading
