These are great- I recognised the last one immediately- it's my local beach, Eastern Beach in Geelong. Razz

Anyone up for a barbie there in the summer? We could sneak one in before the reunion, and come back to my place for a cuppa after.


You still up for the barbie and cuppa Judith? The weather is getting warmer now. Look forward to it in the new year.

Hello Dennis, I believe you had a lengthy conversation with my son David a few weeks ago. He phoned me about the article you put in the paper and was very interested.
I did send an e-mail regarding this.

A family named Rimmers came to Australia in 1951 to Williamstown.


Hope you enjoy the site...

Regards Olwen..
