Today I fly away.
Three and a half hours to Dallas, another three and a half hours from there to San Francisco. After the always fun stay at Paula's house for two nights, we'll have a brief flight to Los Angeles to board our plane for Sydney Thursday evening.......a very long fifteen plus hours when we plan to pull on those welcome Quantas PJ's they hand out, lie flat, and sleep our way to the other side of the world! That's not the final destination though, on to another flight of five plus hours to reach the town of Broome on the west coast of Australia.
By then the beach is going to look mighty tempting...........and I think we're going to be doing something quite different during our brief respite there before boarding ORION.
NO, I'm not taking up surfing.......too many sharks, and I won't be basking on the sand in the expected 90+ degrees!
MANY THANKS for all your good wishes for this trip. Hope to be here again soon - I'll post when I can.
