It was a long eight hour journey down the Bruce Highway. Driving in Australia is tricky. The roads have long, straight stretches, the speed limit is 100 km/hr, there is little traffic, the scenery seldom changes. We out on the cruise control and there is little stimulation to the driving. It is not surprising that there are so many accidents in Australia from drivers falling asleep. But any way we arrived safely in Agnes Water.
Tuesday December 29th:
It rained for most of today. We just chilled out in our room for much of the day, somewhat disappointed that the internet connection is so slow.
Wednesday December 30th:
A new day and a new year. In the past I have made many resolutions, some broken some partly kept. I think this year I simply resolve two things -
1. To be more aware. Try not to lose things or forget things. Keep focused.
2. To live for the present moment. To live each day in a new way. To be where I am. Be positive.
Today we left Agnes Water and drove down to Peregian Beach near Noosa.
Saturday January 2nd:
On a Saturday in April 1979, I stood at a street corner in Sydney rather nervously looking through the Sydney Morning Herald trying to find a room in which to stay. I found a room in a house in Paddington with Marian and Julie.
Today, on a Saturday in 2016, some 36 years later, we met again with Marian and her husband Kenny, whom I also got to know in 1979, in their house near Brisbane. It was great to see them after such a long gap.
