After nearly two months of travelling across Western Australia, Northern Territory, to Adelaide then up to the mid-north coast to Trial Bay, NSW, tomorrow we head home…and we couldn’t be happier!
More details of my/our wonderful travels will come in a later post. Suffice to say, there’s nothing like home, as Dorothy said. I won’t be tapping my shiny red shoes together a la Dorothy in the Land of Oz; Ivor and I will wind our way home towing our caravan, our other home.
My last post was about the Sculpture at Trial Bay Gaol, a week ago. The weather held, and lots of locals and visitors came through the gate to view the art work of local sculptors, as well as the work of local school children, South West Rocks primary school and Kempsey High. A local Dunghutti man paid respects to country and played the didgeridoo, other musicians performed, there were stalls and food and face-painting and a jumping castle for the kids, I gave a couple of talks about the history and occupation of the gaol…it was a good day celebrating community and creativity. Thanks again to Kahlia Latham of the local Chamber of Commerce for the invitation.
