Off to OZ. Not excited about the 14 hr flight. There must be a reason they keep all the Ozzies on the other side of the world. We will spend the next five weeks unraveling this mystery. Stay tuned!

We stopped at Chuck's Seafood and tried his smoked oysters and oyster sticks...........who knew that they...
