Chillaxing, packing and dipping in the pool help pass the time till 11.30 Am checkout. Our shuttle to airport was due at 3.45pm so we set up camp at the main pool , taking over the swim-up bar as we endeavored to finish the wine and gin.
Our flight to Bangkok went smoothly where Mrs Rocket had to attain her boarding pass for the Bangkok Sydney leg. Slight confusion at this point but all good. Trying to sneak 8 people into the business class lounge was unsuccessfully so we retreated to the 24 hour spa and treated ourselves to a foot and shoulder massage.. We did have 5 hours to kill. Dinner was yum and airport shopping filled the remaining time. We bid adieu to mrs business class and all bedded down
for the overnight flight.
At Sydney airport we had to declare our wooden purchases but the all clear was given. Good byes and talk of a slide night were promised and we headed home to the welcoming arms of our families.
This was a great holiday, fantastic company and a fabulous 50th birthday celebration - bring on 55!!
