I usually sit outside with the dog and chat to the passers by and the patrons that come out for a smoke. Occasionally a few of the others will wonder out for a chat.

Once at the hotel we just had to be tourists and go site seeing. returning to our hotel at the end of the day to chill and relax.

There’s to many walls!

At the moment I don’t have power so everything I do, building wise has to be done with the few cordless tools I have. So far it’s been okay, I’ve managed to do what I need to do with what I’ve got.

These are the people of the Otway ranges and the surrounding coast. They care about the environment, they care about the forest. The Otway ranges and the beautiful coastline has a deep meaning to the people here. This is the kind of place where you walk in to someone’s house and find candles and crystals on the shelf. The people here are a little spiritual, they’re a little green. The people here are my people. Continue reading “These Are My People”
