It was a lovely start to the day this morning walking with the beautiful sounds of Eva Cassidy in my ears through the foggy morning. The fog over the bush seemed to make everything softer somehow and fog usually means a warm day here.
SHAY. It is the Urangan Pier at Hervey Bay which used to stretch a whopping 1,128 metres out into the ocean. My Nana used to tell us about huge ships that come into the pier for loads of sugar cane and coal and how there was a train line right along the pier to the ships. It only ceased operation in 1993 and the pier has now been shortened to 868 metres and made safe for walkers and fisherman even though some of the original flooring is still there in tact. My Nana was interviewed twice for the local paper as she had photos of the pier and could vividly remember how it was used. I have swum under it and played near it but I had never walked on it not all the way to the end anyway so I decided this visit I was going to go down there and walk to the end of the pier. Not that it is a hardship or anything but it's one of those things that because it is always there you think you will do it next time and you never do.
Soooo! That is my Favourite this week 'doing' a 'must do that one of these days' things and having a great time doing it. Have you got anything simple on your list that you think 'you must do one day'? Maybe it's time to just go and do it.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

P.S. I was asked recently what Namaste means and why do I say it. So here it is as I understand and revere it.
"The Devine in me honours and greets the Devine in You". I like to think if we all made a concious effort to do that, the world would be a much better place. I say it because I believe it and I am trying at all times to be authenically myself and show you who I am without leaving out bits I think you might not like or agree with. At the end of the day it's too much hard work to be something or someone I'm not. So there you have it. Here endeth the lesson.What you see is what you get. xx
