  The Chatter Box : Blathering On

Back!!!! by kazzzz on 12 October 2008 5:47am
Back from two lovely weeks on the southern New South Wales coast.
We visited beautiful beaches, national parks, wildlife sanctuaries, ate tons of seafood and generally had a good, well needed relax. The highlight was going out on a whale spotting trip where we got about 10 feet away from humpback whales who were heading to Antarctica. I was VERY seasick but it was worth it:)

Ava was really good, she saw more kangaroos than you can poke a stick at!She's clearly glad to be home though. Kathryn stayed with my Mum and regretted it on a daily basis, she says she's definately coming next time!

We had excellent weather (one day was 36C though, much too hot, most was mid 20s) and drove a total of 3500 kms so it was quite a trip:) Glad to be home though. Missed you all, well OBVIOUSLY not the Scottish person (although I did bump into his brother in Eden for a pint or two) but missed everyone else :) xxxxx

I had a close encounter with a humpback whale many years back. It was such a thrill! I'm glad you had a good time, Kazzz. :D

Welcome back, Kazzz! Glad you had a great time. How exciting to see the humpback whales!

Hope you are feeling really relaxed now.

Kazzzzzz! Welome home. I didn't realize you'd be gone two full weeks. I thought it was something like a 5-day trip. Glad you're home and feel rested. Your trip sounded great!

We're heading to my brother's house on the beach in Ocean City, Md. tomorrow but will not be gone as long as you were. Back on Thursday. it's just a little getaway. Weather is looking great for this time of year here.

Piccies please!
