Day 21. Mypolonga to Claire

A sad goodbye...

Today we had to say a sad goodbye to our new friends. The Walton's have been the most amazing hosts.

Scarlett had a sleep over in Reilly's room last night, and they were both still sleeping when Bec tippy toed in this morning to check on Scarlett. Later, when everyone was up and ready to face another day, we were treated to a fully cooked BBQ breakfast on the front deck overlooking the Murray River. It was a great start to the day, even though a light rain began to fall.

We eventually had to say goodbye, and Scarlett was heartbroken. She had made some new friends in the 3 boys, and really didn't want to leave. We promised to catch up again - at Bathurst in 2012! The date has been set and we look forward to seeing them all!. I think 2012 will be the year we introduce Scarlett to 'the race', as I'm sure she will want to see her new friends again.

We had plans on heading down to Victor Harbour this morning, and then up to Hahndorf for the afternoon - but again the weather had other ideas. Its beginning to feel like the rain just wont leave us alone, and will continue to follow us wherever we go. Hopefully our luck will change soon.

We decided to head north via the Clare Valley wine region, and we ended up staying at the Clare Caravan Park tonight. It's a great little 'Top Tourist' park, and due to having everything cleaned and 'topped up' after our stay at Mypolonga, we went for a non-powered site which was only $23.40 for the night. Bargain!

Scarlett had her 1st chance to speak with her best mate Connor today via 'Skype' and really enjoyed the experience. She was very disappointed when we had to end the call - but we'll make a point of doing a 'Skype' call fortnightly so they can both get their 'fix' of each other. It's great that they can still keep in contact with each other during this year.

Tonight, my little girl took another step closer to growing up. Scarlett lost her first baby tooth. Its a sad goodbye, but also a beautiful thing, as Bec is quite emotional over the whole thing. We wrapped up the tooth in a tissue and placed it under Scarlett's pillow. She is so excited! A tooth fairy is going to visit 'her' tonight - for the very first time! She even asked me how will the tooth fairy find her - as we are on holidays. So I ended up ringing Tinkerbell (who I know for a fact is a good friend of the tooth fairy), and asked her to let the tooth fairy know where Scarlett is tonight. Its so cute....
