We started off on a freezing morning at the Orange Railway Station, thankfully the coach was there early so we didn't have to stand around waiting for it.
Not too early Friday morning we ventured back to 325 on George for brekkie, snapped this pic to show the gorgeous day and super tall buildings surrounding us.
How great to see birds, including bush turkeys in this oasis with multi storey buildings so close by.
The gorgeous and lovely Miss Kim
This little, well not so little, lizard was not in the least camera shy, could have touched him.
Grabbed some lunch and back to the railway to pick up the lovely Miss Cheryl and bought her back to The Explorers. Walked over to the convention center, only about 20 minutes and across the river, lovely walk. Kim met Julie Winks and bought her out to Cheryl and I, mandatory hug time. Cheryl spotted Rachel Greig so I bounded over to say hello (this was the beginning of a stalking session that lasted all weekend).
Next was an epic walk to find another lovely, Jo Tritton who was staying at the Novotel, you know it really does help if you check out which direction the arrrow is pointing on the gps and follow it, oops. Again we went to 325 on George, unfortunately while Kim, Jo and myself had our meals reasonably quickly the same couldn't be said for Cheryl, she got her main as we were eating our desert. Oh dear, she did a bottle of red out of it though.
Home to the Inn, unpack a few essentials and sleep, hard for some, double shot coffee is not so good of a night (right Kim) but certainly lots of excitement and a few nerves (again Kim).
Hope you enjoyed Part I, II will be up soon, hugs and love xo
