Down under no longer

On Wednesday we got up and went to the cafe beside our hotel for breakfast. It was just after 8:00 and we enjoyed our coffee and watched people making their way to work. My flat white had the prettiest design ever:

After breakfast we headed to airport, flew for 14+ hours, watched three movies (Whiplash, The Theory of Everything, St. Vincent), ate, slept, etc. Landed in Vancouver at 7:30 am on Wednesday.

We've returned to spring in all its frilly pink glory here on the  coast. Flowering trees, daffodils, rhodos, heathers. 

Australia was wonderful - exceeded our expectations. I'm looking forward to reviewing our pictures and enjoying the trip all over again.
