a trip into town and we expect to bump into Marty Mcfly. this place must have been the location of a film set and they just forgot to take the props away afterwards - it's wacky! about the size of Dover and with some other similarities Geraldton has the port, the empty shops , the charity shops and 2 dollar cheapjack shops just like home! it even has similar weirdo's too - we came across 'Diddleypush Gerry" complete with shopping trolley and absolutely made up with finding an old tv that must have been around since england won the world cup in 66. forget your digital plasma here. in saying that there is a vey new part of town springing up and very swanky it is too so althiough it looks as though bev's dad derek would still recognise the old place if he was still around today .things look set to improve here..the people are really friendly too - they know how to make fab cakes and the fish and chips at $4 per person are the best in the country! forget the weight loss plan. We all go for a swim at the Aquarena pool in Geraldton, that was a bargain price too- couldnt be better.lots of things to do here but we will be back soon so will see some more on our return trip.
