Landing in Cairns from Bali we rented a car and headed down to Melbourne.  We started with taking a trip out to the Great Barrier Reef a stunner.  Continuing down the coast we stayed in mostly Air BnB’s which was perfect.  We meet great people and enjoyed a “home life” different then what we had the past month or so.  We took in as much as we could and enjoyed the time we had.  Now when we come back to Australia we will have a better idea of where to explore more.  Australia is another huge place!

    We arrived in Melbourne to welcome our newest family member Quinn.  All six pounds and 4 ounces of her were perfect, she is such a doll!  Santa came and we celebrated the holidays with friends and family.  It was awesome being with the Mackie’s and having everyone together. Through out our entire stay we enjoyed the best food and drinks.  Especially the wine and Christmas day lunch!  Summer time and Christmas goes well together in my opinion.  Bringing some New England tradition down under we made seafood bags on the barbie and popped champagne for New Years.  It was a great time and an awesome send off to our next big adventure!  Hopefully we can host a Christmas somewhere sometime soon!
