All holidays must come to an end

Jacqueline and I landed back in (cold) Sydney yesterday morning, and can’t believe that the wonderful holiday is over and we are both back to work tomorrow! It really has been so much fun!

Our last few days in LA were sunny and relaxing. We spent some time by the pool at the Altadena Country Club relaxing and working on our tans for a final few days before heading back to cold and wintery Sydney, as well as heading to Manhattan Beach which was beautiful.

On Tuesday night we had some friends over for a final ‘party’ before heading home to catch up with everyone once more. I even got a keg to make it feel like an American party to me 😉 and a friend of ours, Eddie, brought over some delicious home made Hummus.

On Wednesday night, we had our ‘last supper’ with the Fisher Fam at Mc Cormick and Schmick in Old Town where we had some delicious seafood and wine, before going for a stroll through Pasadena City Hall. Bonnie and Lou treated us to a delicious bottle of wine – one that Allee was even served but Jacqueline nearly missed out on by having her wine glass removed as we sat down!

To everyone that we caught up with on the trip, it was so great to see you! To everyone that we didn’t get a chance to see, hopefully we can catch up sometime soon – We’re going to be back in LA for Christmas.

I just want to say thanks one more time to Bonnie and Lou for taking us to Maui – it really exceeded my expectations and was heaps and heaps of fun!

Love to all
Ben and Jacqueline
