Day 6

That’s it we need to getaway. I wake up from a few hours sleep. I know we have to get out of Sydney and spend some time away. I text my friend to help me book a trip. Within a few hours its all sorted. We are off to Byron Bay in a couple of days for a week. We have booked to stay right near the beach in the rainforest. As much as I don’t want to go on a ‘Holiday’ right now I want to spend some time away from the apartment. I want to be close to the ocean and to let it help us heal. Both Greg and I feel most at peace when we are close to nature and the ocean. It really is our happy place. Byron Bay was the first holiday we went on as a couple.

Hamish is constantly in my thoughts. I scroll through the photos on my phone over and over. I especially love the photos we took when we went outside through the gardens of the hospital. You can see his blond hair shining in the sun. My sister comes over with her laptop so we can transfer the photos Deb took from the CD to usb. I look lovingly at each one. I am so grateful we have these precious photos of Hamish’s birth and the days after. Deb says she isn’t a professional with the camera but let me tell you these photos are brilliant. They capture our little man perfectly.
