Serendipity Down Under

We recently made a trip to Australia.  Got some rest and relaxation.  Saw a couple of doctors and basically just indulged.  Of course, indulgence means different things to different people and for us it included eating all the ice cream, grapes, apples, salami, rashers, English muffins and cold cereal we could hold.  Driving where ever we felt like going.  Walking around downtown after dark.  Lounging on the beach or alongside a pool, and drinking a “flat white” every. single. day.

Some of our favorite experiences were ones we didn’t expect…


The anticipation and excitement of going somewhere on the Kodiak!
