On the road! The Stirling Range, WA.

Another ace day, on the road!

 The above photo is Bluff Knoll, the highest mountain in the Stirling range at 1097m they say. The Aboriginal name for the range is Koi Kyenung-ruff, means "mist moving round the mountains"and Bluff Knoll (Bular Mial)  is an important spiritual place. Originally the Noongar people  gathered roots, seeds and fruit and hunted kangaroos,wallabies and other animals. Europen settlers arrived and took up the land, creating farms and raising live stock, cattle, sheep, wool and Sandalwood trees which were transported through the range to the port of Albany.

Fondest and most positive thoughts to all!

That time of year

When we reflect on the amazing lives we have all been gifted with!
