July 17th. We left in a blur. I ‘lost’ my wallet. It turned up in a small zipped pocket in my backpack. Sad really, after cancelling my cards and booking a new drivers license while we were in Auckland
Jetstar to Brisbane
From Derek: At Coffs: Complete computer meltdown that meant I had to reinstall Windows. Slept a lot.
Arm: recovering from rotator cuff surgery, finally making progress. I never knew there were so many varieties of pain, and it really is surprising how many people pat uo on your left shoulder.
From Phillipa: Yes this is me at the gym in Coffs Harbour! I went twice. Chris was a great incentive. Need to do it more!
Its been great having time with Chris. Today we met with our Brazilian boarder Giuliano and enjoyed lunch with him at Chris’s place – he has a lovely outside area that will be a huge asset in the coming Spring and Summer. It has been so mild in Brisbane. We loved Southbank and I went to a musical at the Lyric Theatre at Southbank Sunday afternoon – yesterday.
Tonight we go into town and stay at the Sofitel – a complimentary night on our Accor card. From there we will get the train to the airport and fly out! xxoo
