What a time we have had! Such a warm and welcoming and incredibly scenic place is this special little outport of Gaultois. Over three visits this summer and fall we have spent two months exploring the hidden wonders of the mysterious south coast and loved every minute of it.
A fun time was had at the local school, Victoria Academy, being asked thoughtful hand written questions about life in Australia, demonstrating a kangaroo dance and painting cardboard boomerangs. Many hours spent with Judy in the library including a couple of sessions with children making clay sculptures. We have shared a whole variety of suppers as we were introduced to all sorts of local favourite foods. And as for the succulent cod… we will surely miss our daily feast.

Amongst card games, fire pits, darts, birthday parties, baby showers, the Annual Music Festival, the Gaultois band reunion dance and just hanging out over a cuppa tea or a rum or two, we have forged friendships and connections that will always have a place in our hearts. Till next time… we know where you are to – and we will be back !
