There’s nothing like a trip away to make me appreciate what I have at home here on the north coast of New South Wales. Since arriving home from a month’s holiday in Asia, I have been to the beach more times than I have in the last few years!

I made a commitment to myself in Thailand, that upon returning I would make the effort to enjoy all that the superb beaches here have to offer: sun, surf, swimming, strolling in the breaking waves and pure absorption of nature’s beauty and goodness.

We even dragged out our very old surf ski and had a paddle at Hastings Point estuary. We plan to be there again on Australia Day enjoying the afternoon with friends after the crowds have had their BBQ’s and headed home. To just have the time to absorb the magic and beauty the beaches have to offer is a precious experience.

I’ve also been swimming at the new Tweed Regional Aquatic Centre which is impressive and have enjoyed seeing how many laps I can do – but not timing it of course!

I’m so much healthier and happier and intend keeping it that way by regular exercise encouraged by Naturopath Olwen Anderson. She has a great blog full of health tips and information and here’s a post with a question about Our Good Health Intentions Last Year?

Does everyone know about this wonderful community service providing support to women and children in the region? The Tweed Shire Womens Service has been an invaluable resource for the community since it was founded in 1987, and I personally have benefited from attending free courses and accessing the library.

The Tweed Shire Womens Service provides support to women and children by providing a safe and nurturing environment. Some of the services available include crisis counseling, support groups, workshops, and offers emergency accommodation to women and children escaping domestic violence. They also have a toy library every afternoon and free access to broadband computer and telephone.

The Tweed Shire Womens Service has developed a WOW (Wonders Of Women) strategy which celebrates the achievements and contribution women make in our community. They are releasing a 2010 calendar promoting positive images of local women and the beauty of the Tweed Region.
There is also a Wonders Of Women Art Show being held on the 24th-27th November which I’m sure will have the WOW factor!
