But, boy, things have happened since my last post!!!
I was supposed to be a relief driver for my son and his girlfriend, when they took their 2 vehicles on the long drive to Melbourne, where Kirk was to resume his studies. But, our only 2 routes out of this far north Queensland home of mine were cut by floods. The rains just wouldn't stop! So, we flew to Melbourne, so Kirk could enrol, get his timetable and negotiate his lost time. We headed for a lovely B&B in the country, north of Melbourne, only to be swept up in the disastrous bush fires that took so many lives, and destroyed so much property and forest. How can those people rebuild their lives? I still can't believe how lucky we were to come out alive, and I never want to smell wood smoke again!!
So, I'm back up north, and will be flying out on Saturday. It will be so nice to feel cool, after the tropical weather, and the heat we experienced down in Victoria.
