The place I stayed in back then was a holiday house that belonged to one of my father's friends, which is long gone and replaced by new houses, it was after all literally a tin shack with walls made of corrugated iron. And I also remember taking our two cats on holiday there two and one of them going missing. The things we remember.
The place has changed a lot since back then from what I can remember. Now there are new houses replacing a lot of the old shacks, although some of them still remain. It is not very large with just a service station, local shop, a caravan park and one Motel. Well I could only find one and for the price of $75 I have myself a double room, well actually a small apartment. This is something I needed to do on my own and for some strange reason although I barely speak to my older brother and sister these days, it felt like they should be here with me remembering old times.
One thing I must explain is the swimming enclosure. In this part of Australia the ocean waters are notorious for the Box Jellyfish, which can cause a lot of pain and scarring and even death. They frequent the waters mainly during summer so on a hot day it is very dangerous to swim in the ocean, hence the swimming enclosures, which the water enters at high tide. Back when i was a boy the nets were made from chicken wire, but these days it is made aof a much safer netting, sort of like a tennis net, but with much smaller gaps.
I hope everyone enjoys the pics, tomorrow I will visit another two bays near here, where I have also holidayed at when I was younger, Ball Bay and Halliday Bay.
