where did she go?

Excuse me

Have you seen January?

I seem to have misplaced her

While i

Neglected the blog/boggle

Spent a lot of time in the moment

Travelled as far south as we could go

IMG_1061

Caught the sky from the bridge

fished unsuccessfully

Fossicked for shellfish and feasted

IMG_0306 IMG_0324 IMG_0331 IMG_0338 IMG_0012 IMG_0017 IMG_0019

she sang

cockles and mussels alive alive oh…

Wondered about the history of the place

Now called Cockle Creek

IMG_0303

Abundance food and wildlife

Whispers of grand old trees

IMG_0136

And strong people watching

Wails of whales as they where massacred in the bay

IMG_0256 IMG_0257

A sad sad history to learn about

From humorous informative rangers

Learnt about our magnificent giants of the sea

And how to rescue a beached one or many

{remember, call for help, keep warm,  don’t breath in their blowhole, pilot whales are the most commonly beached in Tasmania, put a stick in the ground infront of live ones, keep their tails to the sea until you are ready to release them all at the same time, shade them}

felt impressed that my girl has this appreciation for whales and dolphins, experience and knowledge for the rest of her life now

felt on the right path of life

Took a classic portrait of men and bones

had a whale of a time!

Enjoyed the sea air and the shelter from it

i Got cold but

Jesse finally took the plunge

while Lily had a nature drawing sessionIMG_0341 IMG_0348

I lounged in triggerplant bliss

My head amongst a million pink helpers

the medicine of rejuvenation and restoration

IMG_0045 triggerplant

Met young old friends

And had a date up a giant tree

IMG_0120 IMG_0113IMG_0124

Lily had a lock on

Then we

Grudgingly left

Coaxed on by a berry  good carrot

Drove north

While I processed a myriad of thoughts emotions and responses

And gave thanks for a time of respite

Amidst the chaos of full days

Mostly joyful

With berry/cherry stained lips

Noticed the tiredness.depression link

And went to bed
