First week in Brisbane

This week has been full of emotions for me. I have left a place that I loved and felt so welcomed. Hervey Bay will always be in my heart. This is a big change for me, so much has happened this year and I need to try and embrace this change. My life has been turned upside down for the better. Things that are for the better are always tough. Tough things always make us stronger.

A quote I read today was "It wasn't raining when Noah built the Arc. First comes the test of Faith then comes the miracle" Thomas S Monson

That is what I am waiting for.

I had a lovely walk in the rain on Friday. I walked from Kangaroo Point to Southbank, might have to get myself an umbrella. It was nice walking by the river. I will have to have a trip on the river cat (I think that is what it is called) one day. I haven't ever been on the river. I am looking forward to exploring Brisbane. Went to the Art gallery, enjoyed that so much. Was thinking of you Leanne while I was looking at some of the art I thought you would like. I will do that more often now I am here in Brisbane. Whenever I would come to Brisbane when the boys were younger we would always visit the Art gallery.  They always enjoyed going to the museum which is next door to the art gallery, we would always go there first. I thought I would go to the museum another day. Didn't want to do everything in one day. I will definitely walk round to Southbank at least once a week. I enjoyed the walk.

Finding it hard driving in Brisbane. Not used to all the traffic. Fast paced in Brisbane not like the slow pace of Hrevey Bay. I would try to avoid Boat Harbour Drive in Hervey Bay and now I am driving on the motorway each day, don't like it. I will have to learn to like it. Went past a terrible accident this week on the motorway. If there were drivers in the back seat they didn't survive. The whole back end was all squashed so was the front. There was someone in the drivers seat, they would have had to be cut out. I am terrified of being in an accident like that. Even the careful drivers are the victims of accidents.

I got lost today Sunday  near South Bank was driving around and around. Think I went there the long way. Brisbane is way too busy for me and when you are not in the right lane you can easily miss the turn and can't always just turn around have to go a fair distance to get to where you can turn or have to go way out of your way to get to where you are going. Was trying to get back to the motorway and missed the turnoff so had to go quite a distance away to get to where I was going.

I am also not used to hearing non stop cars on the highway at night. I don't know if I will ever get used to hearing the cars racing by as I sleep. It one place I lived in Hervey Bay I would hear the water splashing on the beach. Such a soothing sound. Cars not so soothing.

I will be carrying my camera everywhere I go, so I will try and have a photo each week.

Have a great week everyone.
Love you all here from Brisbane
Kym xoxo
