Oz Report – Part 20 – Day trip to Belmont


Today was our last day in Australia, and we had arranged to take a trip to see my family up in Belmont. By comparison with our other trips, this was a short drive (just around 100km) and we arrived at about 10.30am at Betty & Jack’s house. We got to talking about this and that, and catching up, and a short time later Doug and Julie and their son Jackson arrived.

Mike and Nada arrived with Tony, who had recently driven over from Dubbo.

We had a lovely lunch of barbecued sausages, chicken and lamb, with various salads and potatoes. Mini-Elbeno enjoyed playing with the various toys available while we chatted and got to know the family. Betty and Jack gave the small chap a gift of a stuffed koala with Australian accoutrements (hat and flag), and all too soon it was time to leave and brave the holiday weekend traffic back to Sydney.
