|Champagne on arrival with the wonderful Adamses!|
We travelled to the ferry late yesterday afternoon and then spent last night on the island.
As seems to be the norm with "The Captain" and me, we did have a bit of an adventure getting there. I looked up the address for the ferry on line, wrote it down and - now that we know how to do it - we plugged it into the trusty GPS in the rental car. To make a long story - and an even longer drive - as short as possible I had 'googled' the wrong address/ferry line and we went about 30 minutes out of our way. And missed the 4:25pm ferry. There was a teeny bit of shouting and recrimination but we found our way to the right terminal for the next ferry at 5:25pm.
|I dropped the injured/still uncomfortable captain off at the ferry terminal with the bags while I drove around searching for a parking place. Doesn't he look happy?!?|
|The spectacular view from the Adams' back yard over Morton Bay. They live in a little cottage way on top of the main hill in Dunwich ... the primary settlement on North Stradbroke Island. The sunset was a Killer!|
A fun night - full of love and laughs - was had by everyone. I'm still (I think its we're but he's not as vocal as me) completely smitten by little Lillian and found it really hard to leave this morning.
|I LOVE this photo of George with Lillian!|

Tomorrow morning at 0700, the Captain and I start our journey to Southport through the Broadwater. It's going to be a bit hairy due to shallow water and confusing beacons but this time tomorrow night we should be about half way there.
