Day 11 - Welcome to Melbourne!!!


Sheesh. We were 69 kilometers to Melbourne at noon...and docking at 8p. Can you say S-L-O-W? What’s up with that??? Must be some kind of docking conflict, as we were originally scheduled to dock at 8a, and then they changed it to 8p. Now we only have ONE day in Melbourne. Drat. After three days at sea, we’re both ready to get on dry land.
Prince Will is six months old today and I’m missing seeing his new trick of sitting up all by himself. And missing the good sugar from all the wee ones. Drat again.
So now I am back...we ate dinner early so that we could watch the docking. Woohoo...we are here in Melbourne, and plan to get off the ship and walk around a bit whenever we are cleared to leave! I just spoke with Luke, and he will pick us up in the morning.
Well alrighty...us and 1,500 other folks decided they wanted to go ashore...so we said the heck with that and went and listened to the Elan Strings. That was more fun than standing in line. The end. Life is very good!!! I hope y’all have a great day.
