Last month a group of us sailed up the Port River on a huge Catamaran. As we left the docks and I looked back, a huge wave of nostalgia came over me - in my youth, that marvellous building in the centre housed the Port Adelaide Institute Library, of which I became a member; one can easily recall the dark, quiet, almost-musty smell of the old books on shelves! Then, not many years later it became home to Her Majesty's Customs & Excise Department, where I worked for 5 years straight out of school and it was an excellent grounding for my subsequent, long corporate career.
I am very grateful for the opportunities it provided for me to expand my skills and to travel.
. . . a lot of water has "gone under the bridge" since those days !
After our cruise, we adjourned to a nearby harbourside pub for pancakes (as you do) , and this quirky image of cutlery rolled up in napkins and piled on a tray appealed to my "whacky" photographer's eye!
