Kiama's Charm no.4

After a most beautiful drive along the Mendocino coast we spend the night at the best of all Koa Kampgrounds: Manchester Beach!!

Kiama would have loved this place. Apart from memories of visiting friends in Manchester, UK it was close to a beach, littered with driftwood, itching to be used for an interactive group art installation. There was a big fire pit to gather around and exchange stories with other travellers or play a song or two on a guitar. Or if you were into some performing you could use the karaoke machine in the barn - luckily quiet after 10pm.

The plots were generous with lots of trees providing shade for those hot summer days.

I hung Kiama's Charm no.4 on a tap at Blue Sky Drive - RVsite 15

This quote was on the reception/shop building. I love it, as it also captures Kiama's short life for me:
"Life is not measured by the amount of breaths we take,
but by the people and places that take our breath away"
