Port Fairy (Finally!)

Hello all!  We are now on the other side of the world and settled in Orlando.

The trip was a shocker in terms of time spent traveling - something like 35+ hours.  But Neve was a trooper.  And, given her sleep to eat to sleep habits she really has not noticed the jet lag (unlike her parents!).  United is most certainly not the airline of choice on the long haul from AUS to LA, for those considering this trip with a tiny baby.  No personal entertainment centers on United, so movies were shown on the large screens for the entire 14 hour flight.  So what, you say?  Well, babies, like large wingless moths, find the light from tv screens to be, well, mesmerizing - which makes sleeping a BIG challenge!   Anyway, we made it in one piece and that's what counts!!

Before leaving Australia, we spent a lovely long weekend with Hamish's family in Port Fairy.  I wanted to share the beautiful beach with you and some of the fun family photos.  I've been trying to balance hospital visits with Neve care and dinner prep, so my blogging has (as you may have noticed) taken a nose dive.  Will try to keep up at least periodically!

Happy trails --

Cousins in love!

  1. Your blog updates have been great for both a giggle & for valuable info as well. Little Neve is simply gorgeous! Look fwd to your updates as time allows :) SJ & B xx

  2. Welcome back stateside!
    The scenery in Australia seems a bit more magical that the magic (kingdom) in your Orlando backyard. In any event, your traveling nomad family is nearly home!

  3. Welcome back! Everyone is looking beautiful and healthy!! Soon, your blogposts may look like mine: single picture, mobile emailed to Blogger, and all typed out by thumb while baby gets into a sleep. Our thoughts are with the FL familyl. xoxo

  4. Gaelyn,

    Welcome back to the states! We hope Neve is doing well and you have recovered from your long trip. If you are back in NYC and have time, we would love to grab a drink with the three of you and meet Neve.


  5. Gaelyn, Hamish and Neve,
