Trip to Australia.




































One of the most exciting things to happen for a while is a long planned but suddenly locked in trip to Australia. The thing that probably made me act definitively was the wonderful cheap fares that qantas have offered. So Patrick Drew Jye and myself are off to see everyone and spend 3 weeks in Australia. The great part is that I get to finally hold my only grandson Hunter Jack and see my lovely girls that i really hate being apart from. Its been a rough ride that way for us all. Drew and Jye are beside themselves with excitement and have already been in touch with their friends in Balingup.....to let them know in advance so we can see as many people as time allows. It is also my intent to let Patrick explore some of the more interesting places.....i have a few on the list and i am sure there will be more added.

We leave July 28th! it is a long and somewhat tortuous plane ride..... i have done it 4 times now and didn't like it a bit ANY of the times..... the leg between New York and Sydney is SIGNIFICANTLY long...... especially with two boys to entertain.

So we spend a week in Melbourne with Madeleine and Caroline before heading to Western Australia...... picking up a campervan and heading down south so Patrick can meet my parents and the boys see Nana and Papa again...... not really sure who is more thrilled. The weeks are sure to drag here.....so i am keeping busy getting the plants ready for the kitchen and vegetable garden.......
