GOODBYE AUSTRALIA, HELLO SOUTH PACIFIC

My time in Australia is about to come to an end.  Tomorrow I join the Sea Princess for a 4 week cruise through the Polynesian Islands to San Francisco.  If you would like to follow my progress don't forget you can read all about it by clicking on the strange Aussie lady on the right sidebar.  This will take you to my travel blog.

To my dear blogging friends, please excuse me for not keeping up with you, I have limited wifi time on this trip and I'm anxious to record all the experiences so that I can re-live them at some later time when I'm old and frail..

It sounds wonderful. I know someone locally who has just returned from a similar cruise and said it was fantastic. Hope you have a great time and hopefully by the time you return to UK our weather will be warmer. A x

I loved my Sydney - Auckland cruise many years ago...met several people who have been friends ever since.

I'll be there with bells on to pick you up in San Francisco...what fun to finally meet you....though you said NOT at 7AM....you have my mobile..or, if not, I'll get it to you before the big day.

The Golden Gate Bridge, by the way, is 75 years old now ( you will sail under it - though you may still be asleep ) and Mr. Tony Bennett was here on Valentine's Day to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the song, "I Left My Heart in San Francisco" - wish you were staying a couple of days in my city so we could show the place what a couple of "senior" ladies can do to liven things up.
