How are you all? I’m going well here, getting busy with different projects. Recently I’ve been volunteering at a local non-for-profit charity called “Feed the Little Children”. It is a volunteer run local charity where we cook nutritious meals and deliver them to the local children whom would go to bed hungry otherwise.
I absolutely love it, and seeing all their smiling faces. The parents that I talk to are also very appreciative and welcoming. I go out and help out with the deliveries of the meals (there are other volunteers that cook the meals). At the moment we’re delivering over 300 meals in a night. At the moment it’s only run on the weekend (Friday and Saturday), but ideally FEED THE LITTLE CHILDREN want to run all year round. A lot of the houses are in badly lit areas and it can get really dark at night. Helping to feed the children and help those in need in my community is a wonderful opportunity, and feels truly humbling and amazing inside. For those that are interested in more information, here is the link to their website: http://feedthelittlechildren.org.au
Tomorrow I’ll be feeding the children. Definitely something I love to do on the weekend. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. Stay strong. Do YOU have anything planned for the weekend?
Always be kind to one another. With an open mind, and an open heart…anything is possible.
I saw a plane take off about 8:15pm ish tonight (11/07/2012), and we get a phone call about 8:30pm that has plane has crashed into the sea. There was an orchestra show on at the beach, and everyone there heard a strange noise and heard the crash. Far as I know, no one witnessed the actual crash. I have been at the beach for 2 hours and didn’t get home til near midnight. The plane hasn’t been found yet, but they’ll keep looking tomorrow. It was a young 22 year old pilot, in a twin engine freight plane. The beach was busy with snoopy onlookers (as they do in Broome) as was the Police and other emergency services. The Coastwatch plane was flying in a grid looking for the one that went down, up and down the coast, and there were boats in the water with their search lights on. Looking. After 10pm I saw a bright red flare off in the distance (not a flying flare but a hand held one), apparently it was a signal to the police force on the beach.
As the cars were leaving the beach the ambulance got bogged in the soft sand at the entrance to the car ramp (infront of the Surf Life Savers Club) twice!! That’s as far as I know. It was rather chilly at the beach. I saw an owl too. Goodness knows what will happen tomorrow and how the rest of the search will go, and what the “Broomers” are going to be (rumours in Broome). WOW!!
My heart goes out to the pilot and his family, the aircraft owners and the business owners at this time. xx
P.S. Found out today (next day, 12th July 2012), that the pilot has died and the plane crashed in the sand dunes..it never made it to the sea.
I found out a few minutes ago that Miranda Kerr and her family (husband and baby) are in Broome at the moment. She’s here doing photo shoots for David Jones, and has been to some of the beautiful beaches here. I thought that I would also use this entry to mention some of the other International celebrities that have visited Broome and are able to remain incognito. You don’t get groups of fans or paparazzi in Broome, and many celebs walk in the street and are literally left alone. We do get national celebs here too. Trust me when I say that a surprise ambush will stay as one until it reveals itself. This town is that relaxed when celebrities come to town. Below are a list of some of the international celebrities that have visited Broome over the years (and recently):
