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.
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.
