on to Wagga Wagga and Sydney

G’day.
I”my typing this from the 36th flood lounge of a really, really nice hotel in George St, Sydney … Dale’s brother Dan was able to arrange two rooms for the 3 couples. Not sure how the bedding/sleeping arrangements will pan out, but we’re thankful to Dan for organizing this.

Mind you, we ended up parking the 3.5 m high (& 3 m wide) Motorhome in a loading bay deep in the bowels of the basement. Getting it back to street level tomorrow morning is a challenge I don’t even want to think about!

Anyhow, there have been two highlights from the last two days.

The first is driving through the river land and Mallee country of eastern South Australia & NW Victoria and taking in the Murray River especially, but also the Murrumbidgee. Our caravan parks at Renmark and Wagga Wagga were right on the river. Lovely van parks and great river views.

The second was just a few hours ago as the six of us took the train to Circular Quay and then had a really enjoyable return trip on the Manly Ferry to Manly Beach. After the obligatory walk along the Corso to the beach we sat enjoyed fish and chips with Tom and Diana al fresco style.

I never really tire of this Manly Ferry trip. It’s so refreshing and a reminder of what a gift Sydney Harbour is to the city. Couple it with the Sydney Harbour Bridge and opera house and you have a marvelous threesome. Our return docking at the Quay coincided with a special 40th birthday concert open-air at the opera house.

Tomorrow we all head off really early – our family from the U.S. head across the Tasman, while Dale and I motorhome our way north. Back home on Wednesday. It hasn’t been without its interesting moments, but it’s been a rare and much-appreciated experience, Absolutely!

Cheers,
David
