Here we go again.....

It's almost 3 years since we left Big White on Feb 29th 2008, when my favourite sister-in-law Lorraine vowed to bring her grandchildren back with her to experience the magnificence of Big White.

As the clock ticks over to welcome in 2011, we are now 36 days away from her dream coming to fruition.

I will be keeping another blog on the trip for our friends and family who are back in Australia.
