My Dad bought this property on New Year's Day 1955. We were camping with an 18 foot caravan in the area and Dad decided to go for a drive to the 'other side' of the Mercury Bay. Back then seaside sections like this were not too common. He bought it on the spot for a few 100 dollars. When I asked Mum she reckoned Dad sold 3 or 4 best beef cattle. Tomorrow I will show you a photo taken recently.

Reporting Back ..........

Got a few small things done. Things that were nagging and being put off while I coped with bigger stuff.

Did some laundry including a couple of loads of Mum's things.

We have guests arriving Friday afternoon and I want to get some gardening.... well weeding in before then.

How did I do?

Tired. Not a great day but I'm still wheat free. 

I'm not drinking enough.

  1. I find it incredibly sad looking back at old photos... times gone by, memories. I love that photo of the bach though - I presume that is Simpson's beach! Gordon and Diana have old photos of their original beach house bought by Diana's family in the 1960s.
