Our last few hours in Townsville
08.03.2012 - 08.03.2012 27 °C
It's 7pm Thursday night and we've come to the realisation there are a mere 12 hours until we leave Townsville. Woohoo! The plan is to catch the 7.10am ferry from Nelly Bay to the mainland, get a taxi to the airport, then wait patiently for our 9.20am flight to Sydney. I'm not sure if it will be a patient wait - more like a fidgety, hurry-up-and-start-the-party wait, but we'll do our best to remain calm. Thankfully the cricket final is on to give us something to focus on. We're also acquiring a taste for Mount Gay rum, from Barbados, as 'research'.
Even though tomorrow's not 'the BIG flight', preparations were aimed at the big flight and the litany of domestic flights we'll be taking on our adventures. Both of our bags are laden with goodies to take to Iowa plus enough clothes to last six months and several fashion seasons. Somehow I suspect they won't be necessary and we'll regret taking so many, but we'll see.
Roll on 6.50am so we can get going!
