Just a quick note to say thanks again for the support Jack, Jamie and I constantly get on here. Jack and I went down to have dinner with Jamie and Makeo (Jamie's girlfriend) on Thursday and Lee and her husband Mark ended up with us too. We had a wonderful evening and I think Jamie went home quite happy. This afternoon Jack and I headed down there again to Jenni's Mum's (Sandra) for a birthday BBQ for Jamie and despite the heat had a lovely afternoon with the family. Jack had a great time having water fights with his cousin Tommy and the rest of us lazed around and ate and drank! We were a little late and missed the grown up version of the water fight apparently!
Well, Jack and I head off (finally) on our road trip tomorrow and I think it will be a good day to be in the air conditioned car. The forecast is for 43 degrees Celsius in Melbourne (well over 110 degrees Fahrenheit I believe!) and only slightly less as we head east and then north up the coast. It's about 6-7 hours drive I think but we will be taking our time and not planning on anything other than enjoying the drive and maybe the odd quick swim along the way. Hopefully by the time we arrive in Tathra the evening will be cooling and my relatives will have the BBQ cooked and a cold drink for Jack and I! The next couple of days up there are forecast to be in the mid to high 30's again so not much relief but we will be camping across the road from the beach so plenty of time in the water I think.
Sorry I haven't got the photos of Jen when she was healthier up yet but I have one in mind and I need to scan it and haven't worked out how to do that yet. Will get it up when we get back and will post some of the trip too. Am looking forward to visiting old friends in Sydney I haven't seen for over ten years and a mate's place just north of Sydney that I have never visited. He keeps coming down home so finally it's my turn to head there. Jack's excited and we have been planning what to take and where to go for the last few days.
Anyway, must go and get some sleep for the long drive tomorrow. Take care and I'll post on our return.
