Port Fairy

Fifty summers ago, I used to play basketball

on Sunday and Wednesday night

in this Port Fairy hall…

 

…which is located just across the road

from our cool off station.

…the forethought of our forefathers

was astounding  😉

Port Fairy

The Port Fairy fleet,

both fishing and pleasure craft…

 

…at rest in the Moyne River.

***

The upper reaches of the Moyne River,

is a series of water holes during the summer,

and flows past Dad’s farm.

However, it also contained

the only swimming hole in the district

until we had a swimming pool built

in our town in 1967.

The hole in which we swam was about

a 400-yard walk in through tall ferns

which grew right up to the path

across which slithered the occasional snake.

Those were the days!  🙂
