later in the afternoon...a lonely arm chair near harris street in brunswick east, melbourne
newcastle beach... last surf at the beach before we head west
the restored fascard of newcastle ocean baths... they are just starting to paint the southern wing of the ocean baths changrooms. this is the place my grandmother used to swim when she was a schoolgirl up on the hill at newcastle grammar.
this will be my last swim here for a while...

the old musty carpet & pressed tin ceilings of barker street. the bedroom & the lounge room ceilings have been studied for many hours over the three years of living at no.7
this pressed tin ceiling belongs to J's old room of 11 high street
all the empty rooms. everything has gone now...it's so clean and bright

it's been a week of packing up. the artworks on the walls are the last things to come down and be carefully stored away.
Jake, Sissie, Muffie, Gavin & Arthur are all ready for their big move to WA.

the best thing about moving is going through everything...reading old letters, dusting off books and sorting out forgotten collections.
these cards all come from one friend over years of letter writing. it is by no means the extent of the cards Abigail has sent over the last ten years i have known her. while gathering them all together i noticed a lot of the cards have birds on them. the owl even appears again!
