Welcome to Austrlalia Mate!

The official Father-Son Australia Vacation is now underway. On Friday afternoon I picked up Dad at the airport in Adelaide, and I spent the rest of the afternoon trying to keep him awake. He was doing pretty good after the 15 hour flight from Los Angeles. We walked around Rundle Mall, Adelaide’s primo shopping district, and then by late afternoon we were on our way back to Wallaroo.

We had dinner that night with Daniel and Mei at the Waroona, Wallaroo’s best restaurant. On Saturday morning I gave Dad the tour of Wallaroo, Kadina, and Moonta. We spent the afternoon driving down to Edithburgh (on the far eastern tip of the Yorke Penninsula), and then back up to Wallaroo. We saw quite a bit. We had dinner with Daniel and Mei, along with Bruce and Margaret Frost, and Gary and Juddith Stafford.

Sunday of course was church. I preached on Judges 16. Dad got to meet the congregation, and he even took a picture of the group (for Mom I think). Afterwards we had lunch at Anglers End, before heading to Adelaide.

Tommorow morning a cab will pick us up at 6:00 am and take us to the airport. We fly through Brisbane, en route to Prosepine Airport, just south of Airlie Beach. Then we’ll settle in at the Coral Sea Resort, and on Tuesday morning we’ll climb aboard a boat and head out to the Whitsunday Islands.

Time for bed.
