Local businesses really do their best to look after us
So, Melbourne Cup 2019 is over! How did you all fare? Are we all flying out to Paris....or working washing dishes in a French restaurant?
Happy Birthday last week to a Batemans Bay icon, Margaret Quigley from Surf Beach. Keep them coming Marg!
It's good to see signs up at Surf Beach advising no dogs on the beach area but never fear, you can walk them on the grassy verge then back on Wimbie.
Also celebrating last week gorgeous Deborah Morrish, Miss Mogo 1999! Looking good Deb! I hope you had a great day!
Robyn Broughton from Tomakin was also celebrating another year older ... hopefully not deeper in debt Rob!
It was a very quiet at Maranatha last week as two of its most vivacious and loquacious workers, Kim Bow and Sandra Williams headed off with a few friends for a cruise on board a Carnival ship headed for the Melbourne Cup.
We only hope the water police were not called before the ship left Sydney Harbour!
Loretta Coppin from the Bay enjoyed her 70th with a group of family and old chooks ... oops sorry, I meant old friends.
Great service from "Baldy" at the registration station and "Vince" at the tyre shop plus Julie and Mark Waters.
Local businesses really do their best to look after us and it's all very well to complain when things go wrong but it's even better to acknowledge when things go right!
Another Batemans Bay icon, Edna Veitch turned 93 last week. Edna leads a very busy and fulfilling life and doesn't look a day over 60!
So, we are all sad that the Mogo Zoo has been sold but knowing Sally Padey she would have thought long and hard about her decision, with many sleepless nights.
She would ensure that "her" zoo is going to be in good hands before she sold it. Thank you Sally Padey for creating one of the south coast's premier tourist attractions, The Mogo Zoo.
I would like to wish you the very best as a new chapter in your adventurous life begins. Don't be a stranger!
