Day 137: 5pm

There no other place I would be right now than setting with my ancient in a cave where they live and draw painting on the wall telling story’s about the land and the wild life. It also place I like to go to set down with elders and listing to they story about they ancient and why they old people draw on the wall telling story about the dream time. The place of healing, a place of learning and a place where you can understand this story why our ancients painted this painted for.

PS I got permission from the ranger who look after this place of knowledge to take this photo.

I walk along here green and with a lot of trees, when we talk to people of this land, they talk water holes, rock holes, food plants and animals for food. It maybe dry and unforgiving but, with a minimum of 40 thousand years of living here, I see why they love their country. – Noonie

Day 128: 10.30am

I am enjoying myself quite a bit, the paces across these lands is perfect for me, this is to live this crossing my life at this moment. Here and now.

There is a lot of water laying around the place

I like sharing this journey, I have the opportunity to do this, I move slowly through on this journey, so I share what I see for all to see. Some may never come out here, I was hoping to one day, now I can let others see what I see.

I don’t think of this as a marathon, this is the best trip and journey of my life, one that comes ones in a life time, to walk, ride and to have the time to film take photos and just look, right up my alley. Live it. – Noonie

From the Bropho family to the Mayor of Fremantle Brad Pettitt. We just wanted to say thank you for not going ahead to host fire works next year on Australia day in Fremantle and recognising that celebrating Australia day on January 26. It is painful day to First Nation people. So well done Brad Pettitt mayor of Fremantle for making a stand.

We hope that the other counsel ground around Perth well do the same and make a stand with Fremantle who trying to push for Australia day to be change or Australia day should be celebrate as a multicultural australia day where Aboriginal culture is involved.

So once again well done Brad Pettitt your have full thank you from the family and support.
