We Made It!

Left February 17th, arrived February 19th, what happened, missing some days here....we landed in Shanghai after 13 hours of flying, arrived to pouring rain, low fog cover and interesting airport..................3 hour layover and flew out at 8:20 pm Shanghai time to Sydney. Once on the plane, sleep crept up and we both fell asleep.... awoke to an amazing Aussie sunrise over the Blue Mountains and finally landed in Sydney after 11 hours......weather was sunny, warm about 28 celsius...picked up the rental car to remember that now we are driving on the left hand side of the road...interested concept after the long flights, but we managed to get out of Sydney and on our way to Gosford, about 1 1/2 hr away.

Arrived at our friends, Ray and Jackies' at about 2pm to a warm welcome, cold coronas and a beautiful outdoor deck area...Barry and other friends Margaret and David showed up for a true aussie welcome.....went for dinner at the RSO Club and quaint little place in the hills nearby, great food and drinks.......back to their house and.....we were given the guest house (Love Shack) in the backyard totally self contained......didn't take us long that night to fall asleep....woke up in middle of night to the laughing of the Cocoburra birds and the bats dropping fruit on the tin roof....................
