Today has been a day with a difference. Waking this morning it was like any other. The body clock has only just started to adjust to local time. It was 5am at the first start instead of the usual 3am. A later start today to finish photographing a local school, set it up, pack it up load the Ute move it around and do it all again. Weight lifting appears to be done daily as all the equipment gets moved around. As we had an early finish it was time to treat myself, so googled a local nail salon to get my little bit of girlie on and have the nails fixed.
The lovely lady asked what I was up to this afternoon and I told her it was my birthday, she asked about my family and I said they are all in Melbourne so I would be spending it on my own. After she finished my nails and I was waiting for them to dry she ducked out and came back with a single red rose to wish me happy birthday. A simple gesture of kindness that goes a long way. I walked out of there with the biggest smile on my face and a spring in my step. My flower sits in my accommodation in a Gatorade bottle as a vase. Today is a birthday with a difference no family to share it with physically but being on my own has made me appreciate them even more.
A cruise of the local area and checked out the HMAS Sydney war memorial that sits a top of the hill over looking the beaches and town if Geraldton, A few quick stops at some beaches to watch the waves and then home to relax with a cider and a spa. A great Birthday and tomorrow is free time to explore some more of this great country so watch this space for the next adventure.
