Ready For Takeoff

The day has finally arrived and we are in Los Angeles, waiting to board the plane. We are super excited!  Today we were busy getting ready to leave. Cliff went to work and I watered all the plants, did laundry, changed the sheets and got all of Gabby’s things ready for Lynne, our petsitter.  By mid-afternoon all was ready, so we watched a movie–Nebraska, starring Bruce Dearn. It was excellent!

We flew to LA from San Jose and transfers to the international terminal went very smoothly. Two quick bus rides and a little walking and here we are at our gate. It is now 10:10 p.m. we should board before too long. Our flight leaves at 11:30 p.m. and arrives in Melbourne Australia at 10:00 a.m. On Sunday morning. We will lose a day when we cross the international dateline. Once I get my bearings, I will post again.
