“weigh anchor” – Nara Inlet

They say home is where the heart is,

then my home lays here.

Cruising Nara Inlet, Sept 2003

 

A decade after our first visits to Nara Inlet.

 

It feels we are heading..

Heading….

Home……..

This beautiful Fjord-like inlet was once the ancient home of the Ngaro people.  

This sea faring Aboriginal group inhabited the Whitsunday and coastal areas of Queensland from some 7000BC till 1870.

Eventually their society was destroyed by the inhabitation of colonists and those remaining were forcibly relocated to mission settlements on Palm Island…

There are plenty of places to explore,

from ancient art work,

and waterfalls…

 

Beautiful in all light

Beautiful in all light

We spent long languid days,

warm with gentle rains,

a beautiful place to call home, if only for a time…

August 2013 we head East from Darwin in the Northern Territory after many years away.

 

We look forward to rediscovering this land..

 

Blessed to sit and to ponder this magnificent land…

 

 

being in nature...

Home, is wherever the heart lives….
