Kalua, we’re not on the East Coast anymore

 

Sometimes
I feel like Dorothy looking down at her little dog and saying, ‘Toto,
we’re not in Kansas anymore’. Except I’m saying to my little black cat,
‘Kalua, we’re not on the East Coast anymore’. With this past week’s
sunny days and warm dry winds I’ve several times thought myself to be
near the beach. I don’t know what it is exactly, the smell of sunscreen,
the fact that it’s miles away or the Buffle grass rustle like waves to
the shore.  Either way as pleasant as this has been it has also
induced a sort of panic at the thought of what am I going to do when
summer really does hit? I realised it was deadly necessary to try and
scope out swimming spots in Alice Springs.
