Wow, what a CON. We had a really wonderful con, meeting so many of the blog readers, catching up with old friends and making new ones. The panels were fun, the interaction inbetween sometimes more so! Some of the costumes we saw were really good, some way out, but there was an amazing mix of nationalities, all having a ball, taking part in formal and informal discussions
Melbourne itself is a city, with people and traffic, and trams, which share the road with the cars, and sometimes have there own tracks, which I tried to drive down as well! I loved the company and the food, but I could have done without the other people on the road, as even with a GPS and sometimes several backseat drivers, I still managed to not get it right!
But it is great to get back home. Our dogs and cats seem pleased to see us. And the island seems to have survived without us remarkably well.
We celebrated by taking our (exAussie now US) visitor to go squiding, and she was the only one of the three of us to catch. So embarrassing. There was another fisherman on the wharf who caught, but we might have better luck next time.
But I, for one, am really tired, after all the interactions, the chatting and laughing, the constant worry about time, missing a panel etc, I am looking forward to a peaceful nights sleep.
