Wedding and life on the island

A wedding on Australia Day, held in inner Melbourne at a small gallery,  celebrated the marriage of Helena and Dave. We were guests and travelled up and back on the one day.

For the past 27 years, Doug and I have been privileged to be part of Helena's life -- as foster parents.  Consequently, to share in her special day and to see her so full of joy was, for us, an equal joy.

Back on the island we've spent more time on the beach, especially since school has now gone back and the holiday crowds have thinned.

Sea sponges; rocky reefs carpeted with sea grapes; an unusual feathery seaweed; a gas ship hugging the shipping channel so as to skirt treacherous rocks -- these are just a few of the things that have been bright spots, in amongst medical appointments.
