Hi from Melbourne! I made it. 😅
I had to wake up early today so I could make sure I was ready for the bus to collect me. Elsie helped me with my packing and I was outside at 10:15. A bus arrived at 10:30 across the road so I made a dash for it only to find that it was not my bus and the one I needed was back on the other side of the road – another quick dash and I got in sweating away! The weather in Byron Bay was very hot and humid. The bus ride was as interesting as a ride down the motorway can get in a foreign country but I did see these signs.
They made me smile and think of a couple of people back home who may have needed these on our motorway exits in their younger days! You know who you are! 😀
I got to Gold Coast airport in plenty of time and queued for a while to book in. My hand luggage weighed more than 7kg as they weigh your handbag too (that’s where I put my heavy stuff!). I had to pay a surcharge of $46 so I will need to check before I go back to see if it is cheaper on line. The flight was good, there was an empty seat next to me and I finished my book.
When I got to Melbourne the weather was warm but dry just perfect! I had a short wait for the bus transfer and then a very long journey to Punthill appartments as I was the last drop off! I was very happy to get here and this is my bed for the next week.
I popped out for supplies and came back to relax, watch a bit of tv, send some emails and do a bit of knitting. One of the emails I sent was, hopefully,to one of my relatives in Melbourne. We shall see what happens.
