I went to Pearson High and lived in Summerstrand in Admiralty Way. BTW that beacon at the T-junction (had another one further up Admiralty Way) was for the incoming ships in the bay to have a visual marker ito distance to the harbour.

My office over-looked Trinder Square and I was part of the architectural team that designed the Duckpond Pav.

1. Kamma Heights lie on the Nothern slopes of the theesecombe Hills from where you get a good view of the suburbs. if you know what to look for you can see the Cockscombe.

2. On the South side, Old and Upper sea View Roads, its more rural, with several hectre plots, some nice houses and views.

3. The last pic is one of my favourites

I get on to Sea View and get a surprise. Still flooded. I hate water crossings and know this is deep enough to drown my bike. Back around on Old Sea View again, which gives a chance for another pic.

1. Building of the new hotel complex at The Boardwalk is cominjg along nicely

2. Shark Rock Pier again

3. Surfing at Bird Rock

While chilling a bit at my usual spot at Hoby Beach, a man and his wife come over for a chat. He speaks with a longing on his face of the day he can have a bike again. Do it, I tell him. We are so fortunate to be able to ride. I wish that joy on everyone.

1. Remembering my earlier posts on the '68 floods. Happy Valley with the MIGHTY Shark River. Its there, promise, on the right  :imaposer:

2. It even did some damage under the bridge with the rain of the past weeks.  :eek7:

3. The ever present street vendors on the Promenade

The modellers also display there planes here. Foto's don't do the detail justice. These okes are painstaking in their research and will talk your ears off if you let them

And this is just a small section of it.
