After at least 2 weeks wondering if the volcanic ash plume was going to stop our flight or cause it to be re-routed through Perth, it appears we are flying direct to Johannesburg tomorrow - yay!
Bags are packed and under weight although Bernie's has increased for some unknown reason (what has he slipped in?) - just put the binoculars in the day pack - problem solved!
Having a last cuppa before heading to the airport hotel. Weather is cold and wet so have to wait for a fine-ish break.
Flight tomorrow leaves 6.45am so will be up and about early as need to check in a couple hours before.
The last of the great white (or grey!) hunters
