After a very early get up call at 3:00AM, we made our way to the Auckland airport. We said our goodbyes to Robyn and Hugh and located our Virgin Australia gate for our flight to Sydney. Getting through customs in Sydney was smooth until we arrived at baggage claim. At the appointed luggage carousel, our bags were not to be seen. We eventually found them at the other end of the building. John’s cousin, John, and wife, Norah, were there to meet us.
As we made our way from Sydney, we had a good view of the Sydney Opera house.
We drove north to John and Norah’s house in Killcare. After resting for awhile, we walked down to the beach. We had a short walk along the beach and along a walkway in Bouddi National Park.
