Marysville - beautiful Marysville. It was Victoria's "Camelot" A very pretty
little town with English Oaks
lining the streets, with quaint, old-fashioned shops and homes, and an aura of yesteryear,
a truly beautiful
and serene hamlet set in magnificent forest.

This is dedicated to all those who were touched by the Black Saturday bushfires and to the
brave fire
fighters who battled with the forces of nature.

Steavenson Falls ~ after Black Saturday

Although I have been back to Marysville several times since that fateful day in February 2009, this was the first time I have been back to the Falls. I felt saddened and a sense of something lost. I filmed this on Sunday 7th November (2010) and as the area re-generates, will film that too.

Marysville Marathon 2010

On the radio yesterday, I heard the Marysville Marathon is on this Sunday, 7th November and I'll be coming up for the day. I have been meaning to go to Marysville for some time now but either the weather wasn't good or I was baby-sitting. This Sunday however, it's all systems go. I'd really like to stay overnight for the weekend but finances being what they are, this isn't possible - I had thought I'd love to stay at the Tower Motel, and after checking the cost of accommodation I hummed and haahed before reality set in and common sense took over. So - it will be a day trip.

It will be good to see Marysville again, and I plan on seeing Steavenson Falls and visiting one of my favourite shops - Uncle Fred and Aunty Val's Lolly Shop. Perhaps some afternoon tea at the Bakery (on the corner of Murchison Street) and lunch at Fraga's, I hear their pot pies are delicious.
