Surprisingly, a note was contained in the box stating that an "illegal" drug contained therein had been confiscated and could result in further action. Oh, good grief.
|Multi million dollar houses are stacked up along the shore with small lots.|
|Had we known this is an illegal substance, we certainly wouldn't have purchased it from Amazon.|
|The note we found in the box of supplies from the US Department of Homeland Security.|
|Homes nestled in the hills.|
Otherwise, all items were in the box based on the checklist our mailing service had included. To finally have our drivers licenses, tax documents, my year's supply of contact lenses, my new smart phone, a few items of clothing, a variety of nutritional supplements and more, was quite a relief.
|Contemporary homes facing the beach. There's no one architectural style that predominates homes in Australia.|
In a few hours, Bob will drive me to the Stockland Mall where the medical clinic is located. Tom will stay behind and wait for his laptop to arrive. As it turned out, Australian Customs accepted our receipt for the purchase of the computer from Amazon.
|Homeowners continue to renovate their homes, adding greatly to the value.|
|Many homes have long steep driveways. Since it doesn't snow or often reach freezing temperatures in Sydney these steep driveways are navigable.|
I have no doubt the package will arrive today, especially when we noticed the tracking information had been updated this morning indicating it will arrive by 6 pm.
|Many homes are built into the hills making full use of nature.|
In our narrow little world, a laptop, an unlocked phone, our drivers licenses and tax documents become very important to the quality of our lives. Perhaps, these items are more important than the booking of a flight, a holiday home or a cruise.
|Small watercraft lined the beach in this area.|
Back at you soon! Have a meaningful day filled with wonderful surprises.
Photo from one year ago today, April 5, 2016:
|It was this photo that prompted us to notify Trish and Neil when we suspected something was terribly wrong when tiny Mont Blanc (on the left) who was attempting to nurse from his mom while another born-that-season cria nursed from her as well, an uncommon scene. Even Mom Giselle looks surprised by this event. Click here for the post on that date. It was at this time that we all knew little Mont Blanc's life was nearing an end.
