Its been a year

We went down to the Gibson Steps, just before the Twelve Apostles, to see the lone apostle where we scattered Mum's ashes back in November 2006. It was a lot colder and windier and less friendly than we remembered! But we carefully made our way down the steps to the sodden beach, and gingerly walked to where we were before.
And there we threw ten roses into the water, one for each of us and one for each of her five sisters.
Then Dad released the last of her ashes into the waves. She is completely free now. Dad felt that it was time to let her go.
Then we hastily made our way back before we were trapped by the incoming tide and waves, bidding goodbye to the lone apostle and to Mum.

Next year we'll visit her at Lilydale where her plaque is located in memorium, and pledged to visit her again at the Twelve Apostles in the summer time, when the weather is more welcoming.
Its hard to believe a year has passed us by already without her.
But she's always in our hearts and in our memories.
Apologies for the dark photos, but it was quite inclement down there! For more photos of our visit to see Mum, see my PhotoBucket Album ...Click Here....
