And we finally got to see Lisa, who was immersing herself in OB certification info.
We waited for Gus to wake up then walked up the street to a little brewpub for lunch (ranch dressing!) Along the way we passed elaborate wild gardens and little tiled benches that people made for passers by. And Lisa ran into two or three people she knew. By the end of our visit, I pretty much decided to pitch a tent in their back yard and move in.
As always, i could have talked to Lisa for hours and hours. But eventually I tore us away and let her get back to her studying. But the great thing is that, as I drove off it began to sink in a bit that we’re not just on vacation this time. That we really do get to stop by again in the next few weeks to see David and the boys and continue to chat for a few more hours.
As much as I miss people in Sydney, it’s really good to be home.
