We went to collect the rental car at the domestic airport, what a drama. It was waaaay too small. So we drove it to the Thrify Depot and set about negotiating how to resolve the issue. The car we ordered was not available and nor was the next size up. The choice we had, was a transit van (plenty of room but high sided, dodgy in wind, harder to drive) or a Ford Expedition (hugely more expensive, massive beast with leather seats, with 4WD). In the end it came down to driveability so we went with the Expedition. OMG coping with a car 3x bigger than mine plus driving on the opposite side of the road is a mission - then add navigating with place names that are unfathomable and also bear no relation to how they are pronounced.
Thankfully GPS comes standard - so William was in charge of telling me where to go (he enjoyed that) and I manoeuvred the beast back to the apartment. I haven't tried to parallel park it yet but I'm totally hooked on the comfort level and it's so high that I can see for miles!
We grabbed bags of laundry and walked to the Laundromat Café and had brunch and enjoyed decent wifi while our laundry was doing its thing.
Some of us spent the afternoon sleeping, and some sorted out camera and Lightroom issues... that was me with help from William. About 6.15 we went out with the cameras and photographed around the waterfront till 8.15ish. There is an amazing building on the waterfront, the Harpa Centre, a concert/art/convention centre that is fantastic to photograph. It sort of looks like a giant honeycomb and inside there are abstracts to be found every where you look. We eventually sat down for dinner about 9pm to gourmet burgers and chocolate cake for Pete's birthday.
