Monday morning at 10 we hurried through post rush hour traffic along the inner city Bypass. Annie, our astute driver, missed almost all the traffic and delivered us to the International Terminal with two hours to spare.
Checked in to Air New Zealand, the best little airline in all the world, and went shopping for my grandson, daughter and son-in-law -- just little tidbits for our arrival.
24 hours later in real time, but only 5 hours later in earth time, we arrived in Carmel Valley to huge hugs from the youngest member of our family. Most important on our agenda - feeding the captive snake with live fishes - oh my! and playing hide-and-go-seek in the park before bedtime.
Life is good. Hope the same is true for you.
