Happy Days

Love heart shaped stones on the beach

Boats of all shapes and sizes moored in the river

Taking a walk with soldier crabs

Finding funny little images created by the crabs along the shoreline
Searching for circles

Leaving sweet little surprises on the beach

These are all things I love about going to Burrum Heads

I was there, and now I'm not

and still, the sun will rise tomorrow

Happy days..................

Burrum Heads Easter School Holidays

Once again we're spending some quality time at one of our favourite places in our corner of the world, Burrum Heads, Queensland.

The tide goes out so far that you can barely see the ocean on the horizon.

The river is alive with marine and bird life.

The mangroves are thriving after all the rain.
There is an abundance of seedpods, creatures and shells everywhere to find.
However, not everyone sees these as they walk past so I left some little circles in the sand for others to happen across happy little surprises.

At the end of the day, we sit by the river and enjoy the sunsets. Living on the eastern coast of Australia, we don't often see sunset over the water, but here we can because Burrum Heads is situated on the mouth of a river.

Mother Earth

I've been searching for direction, knowing somewhere in me I know what I am supposed to do but not doing it. On my recent camping trip it came to me, I could hear whispers in the corners of my mind which eventually became clearer and clearer. Earth's Mother was whispering to me, I could hear her in the rustling of the leaves and the smashing of the waves on the beach. I started to see her messages everywhere, etched in the trees and rocks, washed in on the sand. I could feel her around me like a warm embrace and I felt that I was exactly where I was meant to be so that I could hear her. It was bliss! I just had to listen, be quiet and still my mind. Then she came and took my hand and we walked together for hours surrounded by the bush and the ocean.
Her message was this:

Shhh, can you hear me?

Inside you? It's me, Earth's Mother.

Love me, look after me

and I will look after you.

Be still, quite

My magic is in you.......

Thank you Mother Earth, I'm sorry it took me so long to hear you.
