A happy day in Sydney
I am now resting in Kew, a small town just 24km short of Port Macquarie.
It is probably ther first time that I feel the walk is coming to an end in Australia. I know I could walk this last 500 in 20 days, but I would rather have patience and see what else is possible to promote Harvey and the meaning of this pilgrimage.
Over the last few weeks, I have received positive reactions to local councils and information offices who see the possibility of large numbers of peaceful minded walkers, travelling through this path in the future. This idea of a pilgrimage of peace can improve towns who have been bi-passed or have struggled over the years like Norseman, Karuah or Buladelah. I will not be able to speak officially about this idea until the walk is over, then I think I have a lot of letters to write.
Having a chat with a friend in Karuah
For me it is a time to rest, and think of my loved ones in Ireland and Europe and of course here in Australia, as it is those who have carried me so many years to have this opportunity, trying to make a difference.
It's the trying is always the key.
