  • What else ...

    What else ...

    Our home is on the sunshine coast about 10 minutes from the Local town. There is a bus but it doesn't come very often, timing your afternoon with either my schedule or my wife schedule to get in and out of town would be easiest. We go into town every day. So no worries.
