We bought a $160 digital camera and Michael took up the camera as challenge to see what magic he could make of a digital Box Brownie
Luckily we were spared from cyclone
Gertrude, though the rains that followed together with enormous tides
flooded the streets of Broome.
We have removed dinghies within Pittwater, which are currently unclaimed and held at Council’s holding yard at Boondah Depot, 1 Boondah Road, Warriewood. Under the provisions of the Impounding Act, these dinghies will be offered for sale by tender at 8am on Saturday 6 May 2006 at the above Depot. All items will be available for viewing between 8am and 11am on that day and sold as is.
Sale will be via sealed tender, to be in even dollar amounts. Tenders will be opened at 11.15am on 6 May and the highest tender will be accepted.

The Easter Jubilee Yacht Regatta was won by well known locals Tania Mottle and Rob Howe, sailing their beautifully restored Jubilee. Don't know what a Jubilee is? This small day racing boat is after a design from the 1930's and very popular still in both Melbourne and Sydney. A number of them are moored on the North West corner of Scotland Island. If you are interested in sailing one of these easy-to-sail boats or would just like some more information, contact Paul (me) by clicking here
