The east meets the west
This time last week I had flown from Brisbane to Perth, a short 5 hour trip from the east to the west side of my ridiculously large country Australia.
In fact this time last week, I was sitting in my friends lounge room, about to visit another friend living over there and getting excited about watching the sun set into the ocean.
My excitement was palpable as the sun made its graceful decent, and us east coast girls used to seeing the sun rise from the ocean commenced what can only be described as a happy interpretive celebratory dance – or something !
To celebrate the sun shining out of one friends ass we did another crazy jig – don’t judge we are friends from high school away together for the first time in ages – what’s not to celebrate 🙂
When you are used to seeing the sun rise over the ocean, seeing it drop into the ocean on the other side of your country is quite an amazing thing.
As the sun had no buildings, trees or landmarks to obstruct its view, the sun set lasted an eternity.
Afraid to look away and miss a moment we did what any 3 girls traveling (2 with children may I add) would do – we found the nearest bar and drank wine over looking the majestic sunset.
As I said with no obstructions in its path , the sunset lasted for ages and we couldn’t think of a more perfect start for these three east coast girls traveling and meeting the west…..
