“Also there 1973 or 74 may have been in the same house you had to take a tinny to get to the house over the estuary. Use to go to lambs shop to get food such as white death (white bread roll and black death a bottle of coke) and beer that he sold out of the window of the store at particular times at night. I am an Aussie to and there was a few of us in the house it was a fantastic lifestyle with excellent surf just a long paddle out to the reef, dont know if these names ring a bell...Mouse, Chalky....”
