"You get a strange feeling when you're about to leave a place. Like you'll not only miss the people and places you love but you'll miss the person you are now at this time and this place, because you'll never be exactly this way ever again."

As I expected, I have very mixed emotions about this day. I wish I could be more excited about a trip home for the holidays... but the sadness of leaving this place (and knowing I likely won't ever return) is overshadowing that for now. I guess you could say I'm having a bit of a hard time letting go...
I have a lot more I want to document about our last two days in Gladstone and the roller coaster of emotions it has been, but I will have to revisit that after we return and get settled a bit. So for now,
I just want to say thank you, Gladstone for letting me call you home and for bringing such amazing people and experiences into my life.
Goodbye, Gladstone! Goodbye, Australia!
