I pack up just to the point when I have to fit my chair in the car. That's when I stop to take a break, have a rest and enjoy the scenery and the serenity for the last time. Then I just have to throw the chair and the last bits and pieces in the car and away we go.
I really, really enjoyed the drive home too, so that helped. Australian country side at it's best. No traffic, interesting roads to drive on - winding and a stretch of dirt road occasionally - and beautiful scenery. And I made sure I got that gorgeous afternoon light.
