sign on a rock...


memorial plaque on a rock at Queenscliff Lighthouse Reserve above Queenscliff beach...
The sign commemorates the sea voyage of Paul Caffyn in 1981...
He made the first solo attempt to circumnavigate Australia by sea kayak...
Paul left this area 28th December, 1981 and on 23rd December 1982,
returned to this same beach after completing the 17,400km voyage.
(The Dreamtime Voyage title represents a nod to our aboriginal peoples and their Dreaming culture)

Cool sign! We should all make some sort of dreamtime voyage in our lives. :)

I'm not inspired to do the same Gemma but his solo trip was definitely inspirational ­čśŐ

What a great story ... And achievement. And I love that the inspiration came from your Aboriginal peoples culture of dreaming ... We could all learn from that I think.
