Ayres Rock Day

Today is going to be a great day here in Australia!

 
Olive and I are starting our day out early, so we won't lose a moment of this fun day, with our friend Kjelle Bus aka Charlie Rascal. We are waiting here, along with two of our tour guides, for our friends to catch up so we can head over to Ayres Rock. I am so excited as Karl, Asta, Angel Momo, Socks, Scylla, and Charlotte will be joining us . . .

. . . posing for photos near Ayres Rock. I am holding up the rock with my paws. Strong aren't I. We are all excited to spend the day here. So great to be together once again . . . yet the fun begin . . .

. . . before we headed up the rock our guides gave us a personal tour of the area. We hopped, we laughed, and we we bounced our way around the rock . . .  I recommend everyone take this tour while here . . . not sure Karl would agree with that though . . .

. . . when we we reached the top and spent the rest of the afternoon checking out the beautiful view and having a picinic. Later in the day we had a rememberance ceremony for dear Opus, Roscoe, Momo, and Tamir. When our ceremony was finished Asta release four doves, it was very touching as being so close to heaven up there itmade us feel as if they were there with us . . .

. . . as our day comes to a close we all stop to take one last look at Ayres Rock. What a day we had! We laughed, we cried, we were one in our thoughts as we thought of our loved ones and friends that are no longer. What is there to say? Only that the furries find their way into your heart and when they leave you are never quite the same again . . . we remember all those that  have left us too soon.

I can't think of a better way or of a more beautiful place to remember our loved ones who have gone to the bridge. Our lives will never be the same without them, but how lucky we were to have had the time we did with them. I wish we could stay up here forever just touching the heavens with the tips of our paws.

Love,
Olive
