A lovely calm night for sleeping in Horseshoe bay gave way to a beautiful morning. Because we have such great WiFi here using the iPhone as a hot spot, I was posting on Facebook and received a message from a friend we hade made in while overwintering in Ipswich 18 months ago. What a fantastic gift from the universe! Maree from Red Roo was in Townsville working for a couple of months, and recharging her Schengen privilege! What a fun reunion. I kayaked ashore, picked up a bus to the other side of the island where the ferry comes in from the mainland, and met her there. We had a lovely time catching up, came back to Horseshoe bay on the bus together, met Lars in the beach, and before she left, she gave us a goodie bag full of Australian yummies! One of the chief joys of our life is the people we meet, one of the worst aspects of our lifestyle is saying good bye to those people, but oh my my my! Exponential joy at reuniting with a wonderful person, even if it is only for an afternoon! Magnetic island has been such a place of blessing for Lars and I, in so many ways!image1.
