Pat boorne the famous American crooner helped develop Ocean shores. Named after a place in Washington. My uncle worked for him may have been the late 60's. Some useless/ useful info to add to the areas history. The northern rivers rail trail will a great addition down that way if it ever gets completed. I lived down there during the 60s.
Andrew - you betcha. Sore backside and knee today.?
Graham - Ocean Shores is delightful, so is New Brighton. It brought back good memories riding through there.
We used to holiday new brighton on beach shacks on a beach there now gone. Think it was the 74 floods and weather that removed it all. The 60s with the surfies and hippys was a different time and place. Keep up the good work.
