At times, as we shared in our last post, we experience dark times in lockdown. Not being able to be close to our friend Baz who passed away and to Dad has been incredibly difficult. And the anxiety has not eased, particularly since our poor Papa has now managed to break his hip on the opposite side to his previous fracture! How do you manage an agitated, confused, dying patient? Physical restraint? Chemical restraint? He has a strong heart, strong lungs, a strong will and is not letting go in a hurry. It is horrendous. However there is absolutely nothing we can do tied up to a jetty in Gippsland, or a few kilometres from him in Toulouse, all of us in lockdown. We won’t burden you with more of our distressing news. So let’s move on.
For this first day of May, we have decided to celebrate nature and bring you images from our beautiful Gippsland Lakes. We relish the stunning views from the deck of Anui and feel lucky. Enjoy this mix of ominous storm fronts, spectacular sunrises and colourful sunsets.
Stay positive. Stay hopeful. Stay motivated.
