Friday was somewhat overcast and still a bit chilly (so not exactly the weather Aussie is usually associated with :P). We got up at a much less unearthly hour than the previous day, although it seemed fairly early after a long day and a late night. Grace and Aileen cooked breakfast for us all, and we loaded up and left Brisbane. Went to Coffs Harbor since Aileen had an exam or something for uni there. Meanwhile Grace and I got coffee and sat down to talk for a while and catch up on things. (We hadn't spoken extensively since April.) Then we drove around, got lost and took a couple of wrong turns before picking Aileen up and continuing south.

We continued our drive south, eventually arriving in Maclean at my cousins' house in the late afternoon. It's amazing how big the toddlers I remembered from our last trip over had grown! ;P We chatted and caught up for a while; they discovered their NZ cousin could also be pretty sarcastic, and might actually be some fun. Luke even decided I was cool enough to share his snacks ;) Aunty Vicki had very thoughtfully prepared a roast dinner for us, which we all enjoyed. More talk and catching up ensued and another late night followed. lol
