Port Fairy

Nicholas Quirke was waking up in a lovely old cabin style home on 24th February in the grounds of which was an example of one of the early homes in Port Fairy. He explored the property and felt again the tug of time as he looked at the old camp bed in this derelict museum of a home. The landlady had provided Soya Milk for Nicholas so he felt duty bound to have cereal for breakfast. Bags were packed, everything double checked and they checked out to explore the town. The first stop was the beach and they took a walk along the shore. Nicholas got a little agitated by the hundreds of jumping cockroaches that littered the sand and they curtailed the walk and went to find tea and coffee in the town. They found a cafe and talked at length to the owner Karen who not only was a Vegan but from Ossett in Yorkshire. Kim after having spilt coffee over her white top, bought some clothes and cushions and about 1pm they departed. It was a 4 hour drive home during which they tried to recall every person from the Drama Centre’s Group 17. They recalled friends they still treasured, friends who had passed and those that they were not so keen on. There was plenty of time for them to enjoy their foolish games and Nicholas was delighted to find a new depth to sink to on the weak ‘R’ theme. They were not back in Melbourne till 5.30 and decided to eat out rather than cook and Kim took him to a lovely restaurant in Richmond. They followed this up with a delicious Ice Cream from Massimo. There was a tense moment when Nicholas thought he had left the apartment key in Port Fairy, but some diligent searching revealed he was still in possession of the item.It was a night in watching Woody Allen’s ‘Celebrity’ which had some wonderful moments but the presence of Kenneth Branagh served only to irritate Nicholas and make him a little tense before he went to bed
