Well, we are finally Down-Under which has been a long time dream of mine and so far, so great! Qantas was a great airline (free drinks!) and we arrived last night into a 2 bedroom apartment we rented in Bronte (just near Bondi). It is definitely warmer and more humid than NZ so we all had cool showers and hit the sack with a 2-hour time change. We have rented a van which seems big after our small car and especially as the roads are narrow - feel like we are always over the line!
Today we wondered down to Bronte Beach which is about a 5 minute walk and what a piece of paradise! Super soft sand and glorious coloured water. The waves were much bigger so Brady was in heaven but definitely with a stronger riptide. Saw lots of activity like a photo shoot of a swimsuit model, pick-up rugby game and lots of folks of all ages. Also, saw our first Aussie creature....rock crabs!
Counting down as we return to the airport in 3 hours to pick up Lauren and my mom....can't wait! The boys are working on a welcome sign for them! They will be tired as have been flying more than 14 hours!
