We arrived back in Australia this evening after a long day of travel. Harry enjoyed the variety of experiences and we enjoyed spending time with him and getting to know him better.
We had an earlier start than planned but that worked out well and allowed us to fit in some other activities. The weather cooperated again.
This was a long day. We covered a lot of distance and different experiences. It rained on and off but never enough to bother us at times that mattered.
If we had to have a day with constant rain this was probably the best choice. We spent most of it in the car and other activities were mostly indoors.
It was a wet day but we still managed to get around and see some interesting sights. Our tour of Hobbiton was the feature.
We had another busy day though we did not travel as far as yesterday. A lot of our time was spent in dark places where we saw some interesting sights.
After a long day yesterday we did not want an early start. A freewheeling visit to the geothermal sites around Rotorua was suitably relaxing but offered lots to interest us.
It was a long day of mostly sitting around – in car, terminal, plane, car. We arrived at our destination in darkness and are looking forward to seeing our surrounds in the morning.
Today was mainly about driving on to Sydney to be ready for tomorrow but we were taking the ‘scenic route’ rather than our regular track through Gloucester. Apsley Falls and the Oxley Highway were well worth the diversion.
We are off again on a long delayed trip with our grandson, Harry. We will collect him in Sydney and then head for New Zealand.
