Hi there, it's always a pleasure to share happy memories, a time lost to us forever, eh? Do you remember the jellyfish in the river and the times when violent storms would bring down power lines and flood us out?
Kind regards,
Leigh Very Happy

Yes, I remember the jellyfish....my brother got stung by them many times!! He found a red belly black snake under some corrugated iron sheeting...on the desert...I almost trod on a baby brown snake near the river. Those times were filled with mixed memories.....both bitter and sweet!! It's lovely to connect up with someone who shares these memories!! Smile Also remember those storms.

Cheers Jill :)

I was there in 2009 to visit the old site. The bleeding jelly fish were still going up and down the river. Maybe they know something we dont!. Of course its a new bridge now, but some things just dont change. Its about time I revisited the site. Anyone game?
