It's past the middle of the night....

and I can't sleep and what better way to while away the insomnia but to end the cliffhanger of my last two blogs. Spring has again sprung and it looks like a long dry Summer ahead.

These beautiful star magnolias in the photo were bursting forth in Hobart. I travelled down to Tasmania to talk about a Two Bays kind of project along the East Coast.

Meanwhile Two Bays has been reborn in Victoria as the new Minister seems to like the project and it looks like we have the go-ahead. Hence another reason for sleepless nights as there is now so much to plan.

Just as well I have decided to make my way up to Hope Vale again this year as I am hoping to set up the Digital Story Telling component of the project with a new friend, Samia Goudie. I can forget about meetings for a week and enjoy the campsite again up at Cape Flattery.

Yeah, it is hard to say anything nice about pollies, without feeling a bit strange.
Hiya scout, hope all is well you're side of the world? Did you see our local comedians (The Chaser) make fun of the security arrangements at APEC. They made a fake motorcade with canadian flags flying, and inside one of the boys dressed as Osama, and they got straight through the Security checks, until they themselves decided to turn round a block before Bush's hotel. They had lovely security passes saying "Insecurity). They have been charged with all sorts of offences the worst being that everyone laughed!
Two Bays is getting a bit scary. I need two or three of me to pull it off.
Hi Archie,
Wish I had more time to visit. Thanks for the support!
Hopefully the project helps to bring good attention to the bays and rather than people slinging opinions about what to do, it helps foster good, productive shared vision!
