"No. 21 Ficifolia Street is the quintessential beach shack, long summer holidays in the surf and sand, carefree, relaxed and freedom from the daily grind. As you drove up past the gate you could smell the sea air, feel the sea breeze, you'd be getting excited to find all the gear you had stashed away at the end of last summer and go for a swim, surf, or build a sand castle....Brown as berries (perhaps not these days) bare foot, ouch at first but the callouses would build up over the summer so you could walk anywhere (the challenge was along the gravel road to the shop!) sand would be in everything much to mum's annoyance, freshly caught flathead fish on the barbeque for tea. Sun-burnt bodies, salty hair and a slightly gritty feeling in your bed as the sounds of the waves serenaded you to sleep. Those were the days." ~ Suellen Cook ~
