Back from New Zealand and Australia!

There's no place like home! I love going other places, because it makes me appreciate my own home and my own bed! I'm back from 3 weeks touring the Land Down Under and the Kiwi capitol of the world. Both countries were wonderful and the people terrific! Driving on the other side of the road was crazy, but we managed, although I don't recommend learning to drive on the other side of the road in downtown Sydney. Auckland, maybe. Sydney? Uh, no. Let's see, I had wonderful fun in the sun at a beautifual coastal town of Coolangatta in Queensland Australia and lovely look at Sydney by train, ferry and bus and two weeks by car on the North and South Islands of New Zealand. We went whale watching (I got seasick), touched a glacier and saw a real live Kiwi (the bird, not just the people). It was fun and I met with Shelley Munro and Jean Drew, Kiwis and fellow authors. But now, back to work! I'm going to try to get a Naughty Nuptial written by the end of the month between two books I have to revise and edit. Ack! I'll load pics when I can navigate through the changes Blogger has made with Google!
