THE ADVENTURE BEGINS
We wanted to begin by thanking those of you who provided comments on the Blog and in e-mails to us.
Although today is Day 1 of the adventure we didn't do much in the way of traveling. We are saving that for tomorrow. The morning was busy. Anne Marie got the house ready for our departure. In addition to Keith teaching his regular indoor cycling class at 9:15 AM at our Fitness Center where he has been a Fitness Instructor since mid-2016, he was a last minute sub for the 7:00 AM class due to a fellow instructor coming down with what appears to be the flu. A couple of hours after he returned home it was time for the start of our adventure.
Our pickup arrived early afternoon for a one-hour drive to a hotel on the property of our local airport. Often we stay at this hotel to avoid a very early drive to the airport. Anne Marie often worries at such an early hour that the driver might fall asleep and our community is hope to thousands of deer so there is also the concern of running into one of them.
Tomorrow we will fly and it will be long day. Actually two days of flying with a long layover between the two flights. We will post tomorrow before we get on the long-haul flight to Sydney.
We look forward to leaving winter weather at home for the summer of Australia and most importantly we look forward to seeing our family whom we love so much.
Anne Marie and Keith
