Travelling around Australia in a motorhome. A story of our travels starting from NSW then through Queensland, across to Northern Territory and Western Australia, then to South Australia, Victoria and finally across the seas to Tasmania. We have enjoyed everywhere we have visited and look forward to setting off again in our motorhome.

Sydney 23 - 25 January 2009

Got down to Sydney late Friday and camped at the Lane Cove NP, while we caught up with Peter’s mum. She was staying at a nearby hostel and we were keen to find out how she liked it – a ho hum report, but excited to see us. It was strange being in the rat race of Sydney after the quiet of the countryside. The next morning we went to see Katie and Carl in hospital. Natalie was also there having flown down from Lismore to be at the birth. There were a few complications and Katie had to stay in hospital and “await developments”. After what was an indeterminately long wait, Xavier James Pritchett was born on Sunday afternoon – a healthy 2.56kg baby boy - 46cm long, dark hair and 3 weeks early. It all started to go pear shaped on Thursday morning, ending in a caesarean. Disappointments are now forgotten as he is healthy and safe. Both parents have not slept since Friday night so exhaustion is the current status. We have just seen him and looking forward to our first cuddle tomorrow!
This is the end of our trip and the end of the blog for the moment. We will catch up with you next trip.
