After an unusually long Friday, yes days apparently can last longer than 24 hours :-), we were on our way to Newark (New Jersey) where we arrived at 7.45am. The flight was quite uneventful and I dozed a bit during the 5 hours we were in the air. We could not recline our chairs as we were seated in the exit well, but at least we had a seat and were moving!
At our arrival the weather was cool but clear. After a short search we discovered the shuttle bus that transported us from terminal C to terminal A. We were dying for breakfast and a cup of coffee, so first thing we did was find a coffee lounge and get ourselves something to eat. While waiting for the next flight I managed to pick up the airport wi-fi and quickly left a message and photograph on fb. Then my battery went flat! Since I had already lost battery power on my laptop it was the last I could do for a while.

We had not met other then through our email correspondence, but we felt quite at ease with each other. Diane gave us a tour of the house and Dave arrived home a little bit later from his trip to Albany. As the weather was still fine we sat outside in the garden which overlooks a golf course. No, no balls yet in our cups! :-) Apparently the house is not quite in line with the tee-off. Next door is though, and has already lost a window three times we were told.... Anyway, coffee, a chat and dinner from the barbie, called 'grill' here. We ate the American way, which meant a salad first and then potatoes, vegies and meat. And of course, apple pie for desert! Lovely.
After dinner we were set to watch a movie ("Robot"), but it was a little bit too much for our travel weary bodies, and so we went to bed at nine. This must have been our longest day without real sleep in our lives: 77 hours. I still can't believe we did that!!! Of course it wasn't all travel, I have counted the 23 hours of Thursday as well, because in actual fact we had not slept during the night before we left.....
