Letter from Australia: Point to point

21. října 2014 v 23:40
It's 6am on a winter's morning: mist is rising off the lake, and the kookaburras laugh in a nearby gum, challenging the laggards to get up and enjoy yet another sunny day in the low-to-mid-20s. That's 20C, not your Pommy 20 Fahrenheit - it never gets that cold here.We turn over in bed. No need for us oldies to get up just yet, though our friendly juvenile whip-bird has now joined the morning chorus, lulling us back to sleep.Boreen Point is 20km from civilisation, by road or by river, but many more from the cares of the everyday world. Ready to retire from the city life 10 years ago, we were fortunate in finding the right place at the right price at the right time. We only needed a six-month babysitting sojourn with our grandchildren in Kirriemuir, Scotland, to convince us that we could easily adapt to life in a small community: in this case, one that houses less than 200 people, after a lifetime spent, in my case, living and working in cities from 1 to 8 million, here in Australia and in Britain. http://asepoka.ru/03-2014/index2.html
