The cinema in the town I grew up in. It only ever showed 2 movies at a time and intermission was in every movie so you could go get snacks and go to the toilet. Everyone had their birthday parties there or at Bushland park.

Now the cinema only shows one movie about once a month on a Friday & Saturday night, intermission has gone since they converted to digital projector. Unfortunately Bushland Park was decimated by fire last year and is still looking very black & sparse, the playground is gone and the BBQ shelters but the community hall is still standing.

I know about bushland park because I went to see the damage after the fires. I grew up opposite the Lutheran retirement home. Our yard backed onto the old onkaparinga mill site before the redevelopment of it. We played in the old abandoned buildings and cricket between the buildings. I still run into heaps of people from the town and also from Charlston. One of my fav things to do was ride my bike down the steep hill near the abboitoir or down wattle street and try not to crash into traffic.

Although we lived in the middle of nowhere, a days drive from the coast, we were very fortunate as both of our parents were school teachers and we we could visit relatives most school holidays, even though mum and dad usually had to take school work with them. Luckily our relatives still lived in the coastal town that my mum grew up in on the North Coast and we spent most mornings at the beach.

I love the peace and serenity of sitting by a river in the middle of nowhere, but our plans are to move to the coast (if we can still afford it) once our kids have finished school.

I used to walk along a path that had a spot just like that Ernegirl. I love that kind of landscape

That looks like a road I drove up and down during our holidays early last year before covid!

There's a lot of winding roads around and not much happening.

I read a great quote recently that sums up my relationship with home: "One always begins to forgive a place as soon as it's left behind."

That is a bloody awesome quote. Where are you from? If too identifying no worries 😊

Just down the road from our house. Wish we could swim in it, but I’m not willing to wrestle with the crocodiles.

@Wolf87 I was going to say exactly the same thing.

@Ernegirl I absolutely adore lanes like that - it was one of the joys of visiting Wales and Ireland. I know Australia's regional cities being better connected make for safer roads, but I do miss going through country towns in Autumn and Spring and seeing the changing of seasons, which is often lost on the highway.

Love the quote!
