And Also

The Goodie Bags were hard to believe!!
Fortunately, they were strongly constructed.

Karen, Di and Cecilia took it in turn to cook dinner.
Cecilia's effort was so successful that the frying pan had to be thrown out!

Not sure why Di and Karen are looking so pleased with themselves -
after all, it's not their birthday (it's Pat's), and they didn't make the cake!

Each day there was a lucky draw prize.

Bill (Collene's husband) really had no reason to look so happy after the MAPs team
helped him to drastically reduce his wine collection during the Conference.

......... but at least Karen and Di showed their gratitude!

And we finally got to see the beautiful Lake Macquarie .................
from the bus window, on our way back to the airport.
