It is the stars,
The stars above us, govern our conditions”
Shakespeare (Kent, King Lear)
It has been 7 years since we moved to our little cottage overlooking the ocean and, due to some pretty large changes happening in our lives, we have recently decided it is time to move on and shift into town where we can be a little closer to day-to-day life. Granted, it will be a few months before we are ready to up and sell, but we are all very excited by the prospect of such a change.
This morning, for the first time in a long time, I went on my morning walk. It has been such a blessing to spend the past seven years here. As I walked up the hill to the Lookout I marvelled at how stunning the harbour is, and at what breathtaking colours the hills, sky, and ocean cast. As I continued around Back Beach the familiar array of seabirds were flying, feeding, diving, and sunning. Watching a Cormorant dive into the channel again and again to find fish I remembered doing the same thing with an 18 month old Mia in her pram, pointing out the ripples it cast as it disappeared, and watching and counting how long it would be under the water for. Where has all this time raced away to? This is such a lovely area, I’m so glad we have lived here.
