Diggers Rest seems to attract interesting characters, and this year we’ve had some of the best of the best!
Our new found friend Jean added so much to our lives this year. She is truly a multi-skilled woman. Jean took on the cooking with gusto (first time ever that we’ve had a full time cook on staff…other than me:), and quietly accomplished dozens of other tasks in between meal preps. There’s very little this woman can’t do, or figure out how if it’s new to her. To top it off, she always finds time to watch the sunrise and the sunset, a practice we should all follow! And her sense of adventure is second to none. We are hoping to lure her back to Diggers next season.
Another amazing all rounder on our crew this season was Sally. This talented woman takes on any challenge with intelligence and energy. The horses have been so well cared for under her daily attention, and the gardens have also benefitted from her nurturing hand. And talk about sense of adventure, she’s been exploring up in the Cockburn Ranges at every opportunity. Sally is an inspiration in her dedication to whatever she takes on. We will always welcome her back to Diggers!
And our ‘Aussie at heart’ Swiss friend Fabia…we have managed to lure her back for three seasons now. It probably helps that her beloved Doris, a rather special mare, resides here with us:) Fabia helps keep me organized, no easy task, and she always has a welcoming smile for any visitor to Diggers. She has a lovely gentle way with horses, and with people, but she is no pushover either. Another quiet achiever, some things just seem to get done better when she’s around! We’ll keep hoping our borders open again soon, and she can make it back to us next year.
Diggers wouldn’t be able to survive with out the likes of these women, and this is only a mention of all the amazing friends, family, and travelers who have helped us out this season and seasons past.
A huge thanks to all of you!!!
