When I was a teenager, I used to go to stay with my dad at the Gold Coast - at his canal front home at Paradise Point Keys. I spent a lot of time in the dinghy, motoring around the canals.
Dad would listen for the sound of the outboard to stop, then would come the few blocks to find me, with the petrol can to get it going again.
His was one of the first few houses, now it's all built on, of course. His house was to the right of the red marker. Now they all have jetties and swimming pools. They didn't back when I used to go, so I guess we were all swimming with the bull sharks. Yikes! Wouldn't put a toe in there now!
