Quite a pleasant morning despite the heavy overcast, at least there was no wind and no rain. I walked to the beach and managed to take a number of interesting photos.
The next step in the preparations was to find the suitcases and bring them into the spare bedroom. We've started to select and pack the basic essentials while I've consolidated the travel documents.
Spent a fair bit of time contacting the credit-card company to advise them of our intended overseas use of the card. Ring the number, key in the 16 digit card number, step through three or four levels of menu and finally speak to a person. This is followed by a series of security questions and finally you need to tell them where you're likely to be and when. Then I had to repeat the same kind of sequence for the ATM Access Card. It is a bit of a pain but it is for our own protection so I just need to suck it up and get on with it.
Spent some time researching future cruises, the agent in Batemans Bay is dangling an attractive deal for just after we return in October. Will need to think about it.
The afternoon has warmed up to 28 °C which is the warmest for quite a while. Looks like we're in for an Indian Summer for the rest of the week anyway.
Tomorrow we'll have to get serious about selecting and packing the clothing we will need for five weeks away, at least the last three spent in the tail end of the Northern winter.
Three days to go - it is getting exciting.
