We dropped Johanna at a bus station in Geelong on Saturday morning (surprise visit to the Sunshine Coast for a friend's birthday) and kept going to the You Yangs. Should have worn the shorts and taken a day pack, but we'll go back another time to explore some more. The Australian bush is so engaging and sensual. The trees, rocks earth, sky, flowers .... beauty everywhere. Sounds, smells, textures, and shapes. Every tree holds a story, or maybe an epic. The ground is scarred and marked from experiences, our visit minuscule and insignificant, and yet the land offers us all it holds while we are there.
