Chapter One: He was too romantic about Manhattan, as he was about everything else. He thrived on the hustle bustle of the crowds and the traffic. To him, New York meant beautiful women and street smart guys who seemed to know all the angles. Ah, corny, too corny for, you know, my taste. Let me, let me try and make it more profound.
Murrays Beach is located in the Booderee National Park in Jervis Bay. It's an amazing location, the beaches and the marine environment are pristine. The island in the distance on the left is Bowen Island which is home to a large colony of Little Penguins.
In the 1960s the Australian government gave serious thought to placing a nuclear power station right here on this very beach. The project was cancelled in 1971 after site works (excavation and levelling) were done and a road was constructed to the territory border. The levelled site is now the car park for Murrays Beach and its adjacent boat ramp.
