Kimberley Pearl

I have never had a bucket list. But I just started writing one after taking some photos of the newly refurbished Kimberley Pearl. She is heading up to Broome for her maiden commercial voyage visiting some of the beautiful Kimberley coast.

Nature Based Play

WC Fields said ‘never work with animals or children’. I cannot vouch for the animals, but in the case of children he should have added ‘except when Nature Based Play have built their playground’. Is it any wonder that the reactions of delight, laughter and doing what kids do best with huge logs and massive rope swings is easy to capture because it comes….naturally.

Together they are slowly, lovingly bringing Gareth into being. I can’t wait to creep into Spare Parts Puppet Theatre again soon to watch the tale unfold. Watch this space 🙂 …
