Shedding Our Aussie Skins

We fly out tomorrow. I sold Chaswasser, our car, today back to the dealer from whom we bought him.



Dennis, the car dealer, paid us for Chaswasser today, but the car is still parked in our space in the garage below our flat. I just left the title with the dealer, and he let us hold onto the car. I'll drop it off tomorrow after running final errands.

It took us weeks to divest ourselves of the bulk of our possessions when we knew we'd be leaving Port Ludlow. We'd lived in Cult Headquarters for over two years at a time when we were flush with cash, so we had a hoard of lovely things from which to get disentangled. We've lived in Australia for just over six months, and we rented a furnished flat, so the process that took weeks when last we moved took just over a weekend this time around. It's as if we gave a vigorous shake, and the light dusting of material possessions that we've accumulated over the last half year came right off and dissipated quickly in the gentle breeze off the Indian Ocean.

Nice!! I'm jealous. :-)
