Up this morning, we bid Sydney farewell and off to the airport we went!
I wish I could say we had a great flight like with Air NewZealand – but JetStar was not the best. However, we arrived – to pouring rain:((
Luckily this was a “down day” for us. We checked into our hotel/apartment called Vision Cairns Esplanade, which I have to say is a great place to end our trip. It’s gorgeous! We have a poolside, 3 bedroom condo.
Rob and I headed out to do some grocery shopping, while the kids relaxed. We were pretty excited to buy food for the next few days so we can cook in the gorgeous kitchen. You get a little tired of eating out….
After having lunch, Josh and I headed to the stores to switch out some flipflops that we had bought yesterday and were defected. When we came back (after getting stuck in the rain), the weather cleared and the kids played in the pool right beside our room,and then Rob joined them. I joined them after putting a few loads of laundry on. Funny how the little things like cooking and laundry can give you some satisfaction after living out of hotel rooms and suitcases.
We just hung out the rest of the day and evening. Everyone was a bit tired:)
I can’t believe that we are in the last stretch. Josh turned to me as we were getting off the plane in Cairns and said he was sad it was nearly over. It made me happy that he obviously was enjoying himself and like me, had mixed feelings about heading home.
Our next two days are jammed packed with activities. Hoping that the rain clears!
