While we were gone things were a-growin'. Thanks to our neighbors who kept everything watered, we came home to quite a harvest. Our first cherries from the cherry tree, blueberries and even some raspberries. They were all so wonderfully sweet and juicy. And so much better because we grew them ourselves...with a bit of help from mother nature.
The whole reason for our trip to Australia was Matt's dad's 80th birthday. He is the Big Cheese of the family after all. And 80 is something to celebrate. Family came from all over and I'm sure he had a wonderful time.

To this ( aka sleeping on the floor at the airport)
Traveling can wear you out especially if you're a kid.
But first/ business class can ease the pain quite a bit.
We are very thankful for our wonderful neighbors who kept an eye on things when we we're gone.

Every journey is made up of a lot of little experiences. Things to be relived and remembered. And food always plays a big part especially when shared with family and friends. This trip has been no exception. Lots of laughing and talking over a meal. So here is a view of our vacation from the dinner plate.....

It's not really winter in the Southern Hemisphere. Not at least for us hearty Pacific Northwest folk.
Thinking back to the last photo on yesterday's post, the name of that driving school gave me the giggles. And there have been so many things that have have caused me to snigger during the last few weeks.
I like the use of term doodas in this sign. It really just covers everything.

I think we have found heaven. It still exists in the sleepy little south coast town of Narooma. Matts brother and sister in law recently moved there and we were really lucky to be able to freeload with them.
The area is just beautiful.
