The Blueprint…

Plotting the Journey…

It’s getting close now,

the final jobs are slipping away,

the time has come for us to start proposing a direction…

Our first destination…

Cobourg Peninsula – Garig Gunak Barlu is a national park.

About 216 km northeast of Darwin by road.

Our sailing route 120nm..

It was established by joining the former Gurig National Park and the Cobourg Marine Park…

Vast and beautiful

Deeply indented bays and coves cover some 4.500 km²..

Virtually uninhabited…

 

Darwin to Port Essington

Port Essington is an inlet and historic site located with in the park.

One of 2 failed attempts of early British settlement..

The ruins still remain…

(We were first through here June 2007 – en-route to the Kimberly’s)

For this we will probably set sail with the bottom of the tide in the evening to catch the ingoing tide through the Vernon Islands.

 and will ensure and outward tide around Cape Don..

With a hopeful lunchtime arrival…

Well that’s the loose plan.

It’s also the home of Seven Spirit Bay..

We will be there till we are ready to go..

 

 

 

 

Clearing the Weight…

Interlinked

 

The ‘Inside’ world and the ‘Outside’ world are so interlinked.

A lot of that ‘weight’ needing clearing was on my computer..

I have been taking photo’s for 15 years…

Around 2 years ago I got a new computer,

and dumped the load on the ‘new’ ‘clean’ drive.

 

It showed up in my neck..

 

I have since deleted over 111GB…

Ebullient Living…

Finches have arrived in my awareness.

 

 They are all around..

 

They visit me at home, and they accompany us as on our walks…

 

Bouncy and light

Joyful and sweet.

 

I just had to look into their symbolism..

 

Excited to see what their message is…

The word Ebullient is a statement of the finch.

They are a beautiful omen of bright days and high energy ahead…

 

They ‘bounce’ and they ‘bobble’…

 

Enjoying the ride of the breeze, wherever that may take them…

 

Appreciation of life....

We are embarking on a new adventure.

 

Unknown fully to us yet..

 

But the wisdom of the Finch reminds me to be grateful for it all…

 

It’s all great…

 

Thank you Avia Venefica for you beautiful wisdom.

Christmas Morning at Fogg Dam

We treated ourselves to a hire car for Christmas.

We love a drive out to Fogg Dam.

a beautiful wet land area close to home, yet and eye as to what is happening in places like Kakadu…

The last time here about 3 months ago there was still lots of water around so the animal life was spread out…….

Today it was intensified..

We were up and out early and arrived at Fogg Dam as the sun was starting to warm the day..

Little Teachers

In life we are surrounded by birds.

They are the most delightful teachers.

They awaken each new day with a song in their heart that they are unable to hold in,

it bursts out through tiny lungs.

A joyful song,

loud and clear.

“lalalalalalalaaaaaaa”

 

If I was to come back into this world as an animal it would be a bird,

I always thought I’d like to be an eagle in the Whitsunday’s,

living off the ocean.

So inviting..

Whole..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But up here in Darwin I’ve encountered the Wood Swallow,

so precious as they huddle in there family groups

dancing on the air currents

you can hear they playful chirps as the last rays of day transform into night.

They look so contented,

part of the whole,

so happy to Be..

 

“come on, give us a smile”

 

Each has a special lesson for us..

 

 

The colourful Bee-Eater, quick and alert.

Be Still..

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Embrace without fear,

and walk on Earth lightly.

 

“Hellooooooo World”

 

 

 

 

 

 

12 May 2012 – Pamper Me Day……..

Today I choose to pamper me.

It has been a week that some core issues within me were brought to the surface but I have come through the other side as light as a feather. There has been much I have realised, you cannot save another nor should you try for if you look really close there’s a lesson there for you alone. So I bless and let go with love that what I saw as my tribulations.

What have I learnt, I have learnt that guilt is my ‘thorn’ I even manage to take on other people’s guilt and think it is my own.

But I have nothing to be guilty of I have created the most beautiful reality, I look in wonder each and every day. My world is so so beautiful I am amazed at times at what myself and Rudy have created all by following a shared dream. We are no more well off than anyone else in fact when we sailed into Darwin we were so far in the ‘red’ it wasn’t funny….we were a little slow to move on that’s all.

This past week has also shown me that the one I am closest to, Rudy.  We are so close (we live, work and play together) at times I fail to step back and fully appreciate what it was that which first attracted me him. I saw that too this week and know to he is my divine beautiful mirror, I am so grateful.

So today I relished in the beauty I have created after walking Rudy into work I did a bit of shopping and spoilt myself with the most beautiful flowers. I lovingly pampered my home, I cleared the air and  infused it with music and fragrance then ran myself  a bath and ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.

Life is all you can imagine it to be and so much more, I am so glad I see that and I see me and I am beautiful…

Such beautiful dreams

‎”SATURDAY’S SOUL MESSAGE: Please be aware that as we start the weekend some very OLD energies are arising within people. These go back to CHILDHOOD hurts, so some are acting very CHILDISH & this can be in a negative (EGO – Personality in reverse) way. There are current PLANETARY alignments that are asking us to HEAL at the core/SOUL. So very positive if you can stay in your OWN space & just observe the CHAOS playing out around you. REMEMBER you will attract what you give out, so if you have been angry this week it will take at least 24 hours to shift YOUR CORE into a HIGHER vibration, to see the LOVE around you again, when you ARE feeling & projecting LOVE first. STAY AWAY (as much as you can) FROM people who are projecting hostility. There’s a lot flying around as we head into the ECLIPSES. YOU don’t need it. Be strong. Stay true. Love you.” Elizabeth Peru © Deltawaves 2012

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…

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
