Pilgrimage Success - tick!!

Here I am home in Melbourne and boy I tell you I am a wee bit chilly. I am happy to be back home cause Rachel and Shane (partner) are here, but I am missing my boy Shane and his partner Stacey already. I even had a few tears at the airport and on the plane. I have had the best holiday; I have done things I have always wanted to do, learnt things I never knew existed, discovered things about me that I needed to discover and totally indulged Davine. All in all my “Pilgrimage of Self Discovery” was a success. As I mentioned last night I have so many photos I want to share with you all. So I will say now sorry if I get boring but oh well as I have also said “I am 57 now and I can do whatever I like”!!

One of the towns I visited was "Ravenshoe" which is quite a small country town,
but it's claim to fame is that it is the highest Queensland town. One of the pubs
in town is the "Hotel Tully Falls" which is "Queenslands Highest Pub".
One of the many joys of being in the tropics is the glorious variety of shades of green.
One being this interesting "Electric Fern". They have the name "electric fern"
due to the bluish-green some species reflect.
Now this was the last thing I expected to see while driving through what I considered
the middle of the bush. Yes it is a Police road alcohol breath test.
Luckily I hadn't had a drink, was a bit early in the day for me.
Funny the Police Woman didn't think sha was in the middle of the bush.

"Davine Time" update: On the flight home I did a nice peaceful bit of meditation.


  1. Cold??? Clean and fresh air blowing in from Bass Strait. That's Melbourne.

  2. Wonderful walk about...Isn't it great having that kind of time in your life now. Growing older definately has it's benefits!

  3. Darn rights you can do as you please Davine, you're an adult now! I'm glad to hear that you had a wonderful vacation, I see that you did a lot and that's awesome that you got to do things you've always wanted to.

    It is odd that there would be police in the middle of the bushes, but I'd suppose that most people don't expect them to be there and try to get away with drinking and driving, I know here they attempt to do that but it's mostly late at night.

    Welcome home!


I would love to hear your comments.
