We waited in the lobby of the hotel for our cousins to pick us up. It was a beautiful moment. During our first two day we had so much in common even down to having the same shoes in every color. We have spent two days meeting our cousins and their children. First night we all got together for a taste of seafood of Australia. We sampled Sydney Rock Oysters, prawns and a form of lobster referred to as bugs. Fabulous. We were all together at dinner the first night. Cherry’s two sons Craig and his wife Jody, son Dave and his wife Sabrina. The two grand kids Hanna and Paige, dogs Riley and Zara. It was a great evening of telling stories and learning about one another. The second day we went with Cherry and husband John on a tour of their town and up the coast. We stopped in a town and walked along the streets of many shops and cafes. We stopped to see the blow hole and then and lunch and headed back to Cherry’s home. We had some cooking to do for tomorrows meeting with Cherry’s sister Wendy, and other relatives for a lunch. We are planning to do a three way Skype between my mother in Arizona, Aunt Barbara in Florida and first cousin Gordon Moore in Australia. These three are first cousins and never new about each other. They are 85, 86 and 92. Can’t wait.
Meeting Cherry for the first time at the Hotel.
Cherry put on a fabulous taste of Australian seafood. The shell fish above is called bugs. It is a smaller version of a lobster. Very good.
I even tried the Sydney Rock Oysters which are a favorite among the Aussies.
This one is for my mom. I thought you would get a kick out of this town.
In case you can’t quite make out this photo, it is my cousin and I with our feet together.
Our taste in tennis shoes were even the same. We both have these shoes in multiple colors. There are so much we have in common it is very strange but wonderful at the same time.
