I think I really miss North Queensland- I've wanted to go back there for ages. Its funny how smell is so evocative- makes you remember....anyway.
I've decided I have to revisit Cairns and surrounds properly soon.
Many thanks to Dagmar White amd her fellow teachers and aides for inviting me and being so friendly -and especially to the kids (and bigger highschool not-kids) for being great for me and bearing with my monologues long enough to get to the drawing bits which I'm significantly better at.. I should also add that the food spreads they put on were the best quality
I've seen at any sort of festival or conference- so a shout out to Dagmar's patisserie.
I think the first day was so so on my part- and I was sort of worried about what to do the next day- then it came to me at breakfast on Thursday.
Thursday mornings battle plan.
It sort of worked pretty well and we got quite far along achieving this grand idea- so victory snatched from the jaws of defeat I'd say.
I did a bunch of drawings for people as well as the one based on the plan.
Actually a lot of wombats-as-signature too..... which I might do in future.
Flying on the plane home and watching innisfail, green island, gould island, hinchinbrook island, orpheus island- townsville and magnetic island, ayr/home hill and the burdekin river go past.....a bit like watching my youth flash before my eyes.
