During my travels, I stayed with my friend Emily (whom is now very pregnant) and her family in a little town called Fish Creek which is about 2 hours south of Melbourne.  It was at Fish Creek that I was also able to enjoy the solitude, colour and beautiful lush green landscape of southern Victoria.  Not far from us was the spectacular Wilson’s Prom National Park.

These are a few of my favourite images.

I will note here that wild wombats, were a first for me and I couldn’t even contain my excitement when they came out of their burrows at dusk.

This place was beautiful and peaceful, my friends family were amazing.

I do have to keep things real here, and I will openly admit that I really struggled to cope with the strange balancing act that happened emotionally (inwardly) for me during the 5 days we were here.  Grieving around people whom were really hyped on Christmas felt incredible inappropriate, and so for two entire days I tried to fit in and be merry.  It was really exhausting… I didn’t make it very far into the third day when I took a few hours and processed my emotions.

It was polarising; feeling the happiness in the air around me, but also the deep sadness that bubbled up every time I stopped suppressing those emotions.

Anyway, I thought I’d make note of that too, because in 20 years I might not remember all of this as freshly as I do right now.

The torrent of blog posts will slow now that I’m completely caught up on sharing the images from the past three weeks…apologies if they’ve been a little too frequent.

I hope 2015 brings love to all.

    • hahah that brings me comfort. I’ve been posting just about everyday for a week. I’m just back into the pump at work, and I was afraid I’d been too exhausted to write about all of the things that I’ve seen….and there was so much I had to do it in stages.
