On ending the day, with joy …

Oh! my favourite word!  Joy!

I’ve just returned after a few days’ work in the South West.  One of the towns I love visiting is coastal Busselton.  Being school holidays the South West is awash with families, and those getting away from the city or visitors from overseas.  I visited Busselton, Dunsborough, Margaret River and Witchcliffe in as many days.

In some ways the tourist season worked in my favour.  I kept away from the crowds, returned to my hotel room after work, and completed reports.  I came home with almost no residual work!  This is something I have been striving for the last few years.

But I know Busselton Jetty on Geographe Bay is beautiful at sunrise and sunset, so I checked the times for sunset and headed there.  Being tourist season I could not get my usual hotel I could not go at sunrise as I had to drive to the Bay and time constraints. The sunset is always stunning here.DSCN9902.jpg

The sunset is vivid on the horizon, and it is just as gorgeous in muted shades of pink, blue, grey and lavender on the opposite side of the Bay.

Somehow the laughter of children, steady buzz of voices, clink of glasses all quietened when I allowed myself to experience this.

Seek these moments every day, it will enrich your mind and body from within.

Until next time

As always
