The most beautiful time of day has got to be either sunrise or sunset. I’ve actually been getting up early to see a few sunrises lately, and so far every sunrise I’ve seen has been beautiful but different from the last one. It’s the same with sunsets, always different, still beautiful. Also, I took this photo on my phone. How crazy is technology getting? To be honest, it creeps me out a bit - having to rely on artificial intelligence is not a future I’d like for the world, but it seems like we’re heading in that direction. Anyway!
I’ve been so busy since February that I haven’t had much time to write here, but I’m back for now, no more travelling plans until next year. Well, except for Halls Gap in June! After I got home from New Zealand, we drove off to Narrawong, one of my favourite places in Australia (so far), for a camp. People are always curious about our homeschool camps, and I’m sure most of the people I tell about them think us home-ed people are weird! But really, it’s just a way for us to spend time with other like-minded people and talk with our mates around the fire. I haven’t been able to explain why I love going on camps so much yet, but I’m coming to think that it’s because I’m surrounded by people I love, in nature, and just having a good time, really. So maybe that’s why.
Another thing I find is that when I’m having a good time, I rarely ever check my phone or pick up my camera to take photos. That’s what usually happens at camp. And that’s why this post has very few photos…
I took the photo above of my sister and her friends doing handstands at the beach after sunset. It took a few hundred photos to get one they liked! In the past, at the beach in Narrawong, they’ve found megalodon teeth washed up on the sand after powerful storms. One night, we sat on the beach and watched the stars slowly move across the sky. That beach is full of magic.
I’ll always remember the memories my friends and I made in these little remote places.
