Some long-time local ladies got together for lunch at Violet Merrett's lovely home recently. Barb Gellatly, Colleen Connell and I attended.
We spent quite a few hours reminiscing over our early days in the Bay.
Vi, Barb and I have all been here since the 70s, and Colleen since the 60s.
We all talked about the changes we have seen in our "Bay" since moving here, and had a wonderful time remembering old identities, some of whom are no longer with us.
Your regular Gossip Gal, Dawn Simpson, is taking a break this week, recovering no doubt from a fabulous wedding she attended at the weekend, which was held at a beautiful little chapel, on a clifftop, overlooking Little Bay in Sydney.
From there, the guests went to a very posh reception, which was held at the Queen Victoria Building tea rooms.
Dawn had a wonderful time, by all accounts.
Dawn wants me to wish a big happy birthday to the most gorgeous beautician in the Bay, Audrey Phin, for her birthday next Tuesday. Have a lovely day, Audrey.
Yvonne Hedrick of Batehaven and Coral Lawrence of Surf Beach have just returned from a week in a resort in Cairns.
The ladies had a lovely time up there, although the weather was not the best for them. Nevertheless, they really enjoyed themselves.
Errol and Carolyn Smith of Lilli Pilli are celebrating their 51st wedding anniversary today.
Congratulations and best wishes to you both. I hope Errol remembers and has something nice planned for you, Carolyn.
Pam Scott-Child of Lilli Pilli is also planning a private little celebration for herself today, as well.
Robin Whalley of Batehaven and her daughter, Deb Abbott of Nelligen have recently returned from a long weekend in Tathra.
The girls had lovely weather and did a lot of touristy things, included a dinner out, and breakfast as well. Robin said they enjoyed very nice weather while they were there.
From all accounts, everyone who attended the Eurobodalla Dancing with the Stars on Saturday night had a wonderful time. The winners on the night were Garry Griffith and his partner Claire Lassau, but I am sure the real winner on the night was the Cancer Council, who will receive over $40,000 that was raised on the night.
