We had thought we would not know the election results until we landed in Sydney, but we were just through security at SFO when I saw a crowd in a bar and ran, just in time to see McCain's concession speech. Had no idea it would be so decisive a victory the result would be so soon (think of the last time). Sat and watched Obama's acceptance speech, couldn't have cared less if the plane were waiting.

We are in Murwillumbah now after twenty-four hours in Sydney. Dinner at Norma's last night with Paddy, Brian and Ned, lunch at Uki today with Tim, Colin, Norma and Michael, mum and Brian - other family were at work and the beach. I am dazed, but it is good dazed. The jacaranda trees are magical.
