Shoal Bay 1980

| | Comments (0)

From 15-22 March 1980 the family had a holiday at Shoal Bay.  We rented an apartment and enjoyed our week there.  Not that I have very many memories left of that trip!

I do remember sitting on the horse at the Foote's farm.  Mum's friend (Lyn?) lived next door to her father and they had a horse called Dolly.

Apparently David wasn't so sure about sitting on Dolly.

This was the view from the apartment (most likely at 59 Ronald Avenue)we stayed in for the week.

I do remember chasing this duckling and catching it a few times.

A kookaburra having his breakfast out of David's hand.  This kookaburra flew up every morning and demanded to be fed on the balcony of our unit at Shoal Bay.  Once it was early enough that David and I were still in bed, and we raced out to feed it when we heard it calling.
