A bit about us…

Hi,  I’m Marcia and this is Andrew.

We’re baby boomers and we’re about to embark on the trip of a lifetime; The Big Lap! We’ve been dreaming and then planning this trip for the past 5 years and now that dream and that plan is a reality.

Andrew retired in June and lucky me; I’ll be working remotely, taking my clients on a road trip to remember!

This is “Kwila Cottage”,  500m from the beach at Wongaling Beach.   We’ve lived here since 2009 and in 2011 experienced the full force of Cyclone Yasi.  Left with a blank canvas in our front yard, we set about creating a colourful tropical garden which thrives in our humid climate.  I’m a bit of a fan of crotons….as you can see!

If you’ve never been to Far North Queensland, then it’s certainly a “must do” on your travel calendar.  Surrounded by World Heritage listed rain forest and the Great Barrier Reef, it’s a photographers’ paradise!  These picturesque surrounds are what inspired me to start my Facebook page:  Marcia Baker iPhone Photography.

Cinta joined our family in 2012, she’s a rescue dog.  Part boxer, part cattle and part ridgeback – she is our child and the kids say she is more spoilt than they ever where.  She doesn’t have to be told twice to jump in the car and she’s as eager as us to explore this vast country that we call home.  I just love this pic of her; not often do you see her ears standing to attention!

At the start of 2019 we’ll begin our journey by heading south.
