Glenbrook 15 – 18 Dec 2005
Set off from Benalla for the long drive home – hot and dry – very different from our last trip down south when all the countryside was very green. One of the things we love about travelling in Jimmy is the flexibility. If we change our mind about what we want to see, we just go about, and head in a different direction. As we trundled up the Hume Highway, we decided to visit the Blue Mountains to see our family and friends. It was a long trip (660 kms); however, we got there about 7pm and collapsed in the yard of our good friends Judy and Bill. After a refreshing drink, Peter was in surprising good shape after the long drive.
The next day we caught up with family and friends and recuperated after the long drive. On Saturday, Peter went down to Sydney to skipper a yacht that Laura and her friends had hired for the day. It was an exhilarating experience for Peter to be back on Sydney harbour, after seeing so much of the dry, flat interior. While there were some strong winds, all the friends had a great time and enjoyed seeing parts of Sydney that they hadn’t encountered before.
