What is it……

It’s the breeze on my face,

Returning to the Sea…

120 days or so and we’ll be back living on the Ocean,

free from the ties of society,

living in the world ruled by Nature,

Dinner at Crab Claw

The conditions for sailing in Darwin this time of year are beautiful. With big tides, flat water and light winds that glide one easily and briskly along the water.

A weekend treat for us is to sail to Bynoe. In a huge and very sparsely populated Harbour just south of Darwin and nestled deep in the upper reaches is Crab Claw Resort.

There’s a little balinese style fishing resort with elevated cabins and palm shaded walkways that lead to a wonderful ‘open style’ restaurant, that sits high over looking the water.

 

This is what I call 10 000 star dining...

ps. Our one thing today  was we fitted new 12volt plugs on some electrics, Rudy did some soldering.

 

 

 

 

One thing at a time…

We really can feel the buzz of change..

We are returning to the water.

We have 4 months before we move back on Tiata…

We have been in Darwin 4 years.

She’s been treated  to an upgrade…

 

dreams takes time….

 

Sanding....

and now the time has come,

to shed what we no longer need,

and make room for our next adventure…

 

Pretty sigh....aaaaaaaah.

Pretty sigh….aaaaaaaah.

 

 

and so from now to then my motto is to do…

 

‘One thing.’

 

One thing a day towards the move.

To  ensure we have the space to enjoy the riches of our time left in Darwin..

 

 

Awwww they're leaving...

Awwww they’re leaving…

Crossing the finish line…

An epiphany:  an experience of sudden and striking realization.

In life’s moments we are blessed with clarity.

A thought.

An idea.

 A realisation..

My new mantra,

Heal Thy Self…

before all else..

EmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmojiEmoji

An aha moment….

 

Soothing

 

 

Crossing the finishing line…

 

I release, let go and surrender all guilt I hold for my beautiful life.

and off out into the world I go.

Doing what I love and connecting with nature.

Pure Potential – The Crow eaches us how to learn from situation and to feel ‘guilt free’ when we are assertive

 

 

 

 

Bravery

 

The crab tells me,

“when we relax and move in the waves of wellbeing – moving in the natural flow of things, we have no need for defense. All of our needs are met, and we are divinely cared for.”

14 apr – 100 Miracles…

Today I woke before dawn, which I love and in my meditation I asked for 100 miracles today and promised that I would see each and every one.

I did and I have

but oh so many more then 100.

The air is full of dragonflies, each a little miracle.

I love this time of year in Darwin when the southern states are cooling down Darwin is spring to life, you can feel it in the air there’s a feeling excitement after the heat of the wet.

This is when the ‘Darwinites’ come out to play, and play they do…

Morning Sky

the miracle of light..

the miracle of each new day


the miracle of connection

Two very happy water puppies...

the miracle of water

the miracle of light and colour

A bit of Dragonfly symbolism

Power and Poise
The dragonfly’s agile flight and its ability to move in all six directions exude a sense of power and poise – something that comes only with age and maturity.
The dragonfly can move at an amazing 45 miles an hour,  hover like a helicopter fly backwards like a hummingbird, fly straight up, down and on either side. What is mind blowing is the fact that it can do this while flapping its wings a mere 30 times a minute while mosquitoes and houseflies need to flap their wings 600 and 1000 times a minute respectively. 

The awe inspiring aspect is how the dragonfly accomplishes its objectives with utmost simplicity, effectiveness and well, if you look at proportions, with 20 times as much power in each of its wing strokes when compared to the other insects.  The best part is that the dragonfly does it with elegance and grace that can be compared to a veteran ballet dancer. If this is not a brazen, lazy, overkill in terms of display of raw power, what is?

each one a little miracle...

everywhere you look...miracles...

Rudy did get one to sit on his finger...I wasn't quick enough..

 

poise

 

good luck

strength

harmony

 

 

 

prosperity
