…..Spur, Our New Home Needs A Name


Over the last few months Roy and I have invested ourselves in 11 acres of land in Hunchy.  Which is located in the Sunshine Coast hinterland just down the hill from Montville.  We are only 1.5 hours away from Brisbane, but we are only 30min to the beach. Now that it is ours we need to give it a name.

Firstly let me show you around.  Above is the view from our shed, which is looking directly east.  From this spot you can see a few of the high-rises at Maroochydore, most of the others are hiding behind Buderim.  So not to many ugly things to look at.  You can click on the photo to make it bigger if you like.

Our shed below, which is in a cleaner state than it was one week ago.  You can now see the colour of the walls, no longer a tinge of red and covered in cobwebs.  Previously we had some animals living in half of the shed. We are still airing out the lovely smell that they have left behind. Lucky for me I am getting hold of a gerni to get the last of the stinky shit stuck in the bottom of the walls out.  Eeew.

Below the stinky culprits, they are still kinda cute right?

A view to the north-east, as the sun is setting and the shade is eating up the last of the warmth.

We camped out for a night on the property, tried to have a bon fire.  It rained a lot, we have stashed some wood for the next attempt.  We stayed nice and dry in our shed.  Just got a huge list of things to do to it. Getting power, toilet, shower, phone line, drive way and buying a tractor.  FUN

We need to come up with a name for this magical place.  It is on a spur, so we want to have that in the name.  Piggy spur doesn’t sound effective.

Any ideas?

  1. Hi Roy & Liz, looks awesome and what a beautiful part of the world, congradulations, what about Tranquil Spur, has a nice peaceful ring to it!. Have a great Easter!, Michael & Georgie

    1. I like it, the former owners called it Dragon Spur, which is a bit aggressive I think. Hope you all have a great Easter, dont eat to much chocolate now. mmmmmmm

  2. Wow!! Very nice block of land. Can u tell me what you did with the peanuts at your wedding on the bbq? I know there were peanuts + limes but need to know the rest. Will talk soon hopefulyy when I have time one daay. Thanks heaps.

    1. The peanuts were cooked by our Mexican friend. Though from my understanding, we used a wok, on a really high temperature. It was definitely smoking. Throw in the peanuts, chili flakes, minced garlic squeeze over the lime and lastly season with salt stir till well coated and the nuts are toasted. The smoke from the wok is similar to cooking them on a BBQ, so should work the same in adding flavour. Here is a recipe that you can look at to get the quantities, they cooked there’s in an oven though http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/chile_lime_peanuts.html

  3. Love the place – can’t wait to visit!!! I’m sure it will be sooner than later!
