Farewells at the Brisbane Airport.
The gang already rugged up for their midnight arrival in Melbourne, 1000 miles
south of Brisbane and considerably colder.
The Party’s Over.
It has been great to have Marcus, Carolyn and the two boys around for the last couple of weeks but they have left now to go to Melbourne so Marcus can hopefully see his beloved Geelong “Cats” win their first premiership since 1963, they are the red hot favourites this year so hope they can win the flag……. 44 years is long enough to wait I think.
We finished up the visit with two of days spent at the Gold Coast where the younger male members of the Holt clan wanted to visit some theme parks, they settled on “Movie World” and “Wet and Wild Water World” which they thoroughly enjoyed, (the older male member of the Holt clan declined their invitation to join them and spent one day browsing the shops with Carolyn and another recuperating by watching Die Hard 4).
There are a couple of humorous incidents reported at Holt Press in posts headed “Brisbane” and “Movie World” that you might get a chuckle from if you care to click the link.
I am now at Wazza’s for two days while he is at work and then we leave for a two week look around Sydney and the surrounding area…. you can expect to hear more of this trip in both blogs I would guess.
I am now about to set up a new wireless modem/router on Wazza’s computer so should we both disappear from the internet/blog world for an indeterminate time it will be because (a) It is not as simple as they say, or (b) I am not as clever as I think, (the more likely option.)
