It’s Good Friday and I am missing Hamish so much. We spent the day at a secluded little beach. It feels good to get back into the ocean and swim in the clear salty water. There are lots of little fish around us. I brought our snorkel sets along and we had fun swimming around looking at the beautiful fish. I spend some time floating in the water just allowing the calm ocean water to hold me. I feel protected and safe. I feel calm and peaceful. Each day spent in the water fills my heart with joy. I am grateful I live in such a beautiful country that has some of the most picturesque beaches in the world. I feel so grateful that I get to call this place home. I am grateful for the traditional owners of the land. I am so glad we get to share this sacred place with them. I am making it my mission to learn more about how my ancestors settled here and how it impacted the Indigenous people. I also want to visit some Aboriginal communities this year. I feel a real pull to visit the red centre around Alice Springs and Uluru, Tasmania, Broome and The Kimberlys. I feel like this year I want to get to know my country better. In all of its beauty.
Hamish you are so loved.
