We rounded out our trip with a visit to Kristen’s sister Erika and her husband Peter in Sawtell. The kids were super excited to spend 3 days with their cousins Leroy and Audrey. It was a quiet few days with walks to Boambee headland, the local river inlet and the beach. The kids had a ball, playing lego, making dams, playing in the sand and talking about Minecraft!
The final packup was quick (because we hadn’t really unpacked), and we were away by 10. Back on highway 1 heading home, the speed slowly increased as we found our sweet spot towing the Jayco. Kris had her first drive towing – and even managed to negotiate a petrol station with the van in tow! We arrived home about 4, and spent Sunday afternoon unpacking. Monday was the ‘big clean’, with over half the day spent washing the van from top to bottom, bringing it back to as new.
