it is so cool to be in love again...
I love Mermaid Beach, a long lost love that I've been missing for so long in my life...
at first, the excitement of playing as a child...

.....you feel like Ripvanbeachbum.... you have woken up to the old place in the Parthenon...
cept it had not even been built...
You remember your beloved Bidgeboo..
we'd all get up early in the morning, have breakfast and run off to Broadbeach State School
and then walking back with the cooling waters of the Pacific run through your toes
waiting all day to take off your flip flops...
aah memories...
its so hard to believe that was well over 4 decades ago...
loves in your heart hadnt even been born yet..
and fate takes you one day to the curious old boarding house...
you run around the deserted building peaking into the windows...
curious as any child...
aahh some empty coke bottles...
a chance for some toy soldiers and ice cream cone!!
for all those bottles u can probably get at least two shillings!
you sneak in the old building through the little hole in the wall..
and walk around the old place...

then your Dad asks you questions about the old place
and a month later its bought and you are celebrating Xmas of 66
with all your loving extended Aussie family...

This is my home!
a long lost love that has been waiting for me
always in the back of the mind was my beloved Mermaid!
