Last full day in Oz

We had a bit of a lie in today after another full day and late night last night.

First stop was to the local car wash where the ute had a full detail before I hand it over to my replacement at work (Rocky)

They did a really nice job.

 Whilst we were there we also met up with another old friend and my ex tennis foe- Johnnie. I never could beat him grrrrrrrr. We also popped around another old friends house to say goodbye to Andrea. They are off to the UK in September so hopefully we will hook up.  
 We then bought some food and went to Little Manly Beach where I had my last pose next to my beloved ute........I loved that firetruck!
 It was a glorious day at Little Manly and being a week day deserted, it was always our favourite beach as it was a harbour beach so it it a lot calmer and protected plus it is off the tourist trail,
 We sat there for about 1.5 hours and had a good old reminisce.
We are now back at the warehouse and doing the final packing of the suitcases and carry-on baggage, could be another weight problem methinks.
The animals are being picked up in the morning at 8.00am and we head off to the airport at midday.

I will try and do a final Aussie blog from the airport tomorrow, if not

Farewell Australia Its been FUN !!!!!!!!!



  1. Hi Paul and Elaine
    All the best, we hope you enjoy the canals as much as we did. We still miss them. Nb Caxton is a beautiful boat so you should be very happy with her.

    1. Hi Guys
      Do you think you may go back again for another tour?

  2. Hi Paul and eilane,
    Not sure if you will get to read this but hope all goes/went well with your flight and may I be the first (I think) to welcome you to blighty.
