Mollymook Ocean Swimmers, an eventful morning – March 2014

Mollymook Ocean Swimmers, 

an eventful morning – March 2014

.

The morning began with swimmers (nearing the creek) ordered out of the water by Colonel Brian on his surf board after sighting a shark some 30 odd metres away. Dougie thought Brian said ‘park’ and he began to argue that he didn’t want to go to the park. Brian prevailed as Dougie saw all the others head in, so he reluctantly followed, after protesting vigorously.

In front of the surf club another drama was beginning to unfold. One of the board riders (Louise) got dumped. She later called it a rogue wave. After waiting for her to come up the beach a little dazed and with a bit of a bruise, they got a splint and laid her down. There was no mouth to mouth expertise among the ocean swimmers available on this particular morning. (With a sigh of relief, Louise muttered, if I need mouth to mouth then its only to be from a female)  

It was a frantic morning, Issi kept asking who saw the shark first, Ken was busy taking photos, Jan called on her experience (working at Sarah Clayton’s nursing home for the elderly) to comfort Louise, John had trouble getting a key to fit the 1st Aid door. Among all this confusion, finally the ambulance arrived and whisked Louise off to Milton Hospital.

4 Weddings on the South Coast

 

Wedding – Marriage Celebrant

Karen Vaughan

I am very passionate about what I do and I look forward to every wedding, like it is my first. I reside in beautiful Mollymook on the NSW South Coast and don’t sit still… I’m high energy, love a laugh and a chat and will give anything a go. I love to walk, ride, swim, eat and am partial to a glass of bubbles.

.

I’m fortunate enough to be a full time celebrant, which allows me to be very generous with my time. The wedding ceremony sets the vibe for the whole day. A ceremony with real impact will be talked about for years to come. It’s so worth putting on a great show. Great Ceremony, Great Occasion, Great Memories.

.

Planning your wedding is no mean feat and everyone wants their say. It’s your wedding so remember, the choices are yours. Do yourself a favour and make it about the two of you. I strive to make sure you enjoy yourselves, first and foremost. I take my responsibilities as a Celebrant seriously and look forward to working with you both.

  • Karen made herself available to us via, phone, Skype and email at any time of day, during the whole process of  organising our wedding ceremony. Karen was at the ceremony one hour before the ceremony was to commence, to set up her PA system , table & chairs. She scattered rose petals as a favour to me and settled Mark’s nerves before I arrived. Karen even thought to bring new hanky’s for those who may have forgotten. I was one of those, so very thankful for her thoughtfulness even if it does seem small. (I had paid a lot of money to have my makeup done that day and did not want tears to wash it away) Karen mingled with the family and friends, introducing herself as the Celebrant. Guests all commented on how lovely and genuine she was and wanted her to stay for the whole reception. Karen declined professionally. We highly recommend Karen Vaughan from 4 Weddings on the South Coast as an exceptional Celebrant. Rest assured she would suit anyone, no matter what the occasion may be.
    Kind Regards Mark and Tracey Higgs.
  • The minute we met Karen Vaughan, we knew she was the marriage celebrant for us! Karen is sincere, kind, enthusiastic, generous and personable. She helped us through every step of the wedding ceremony planning process, offering advice and suggestions where needed. Helen and Heath.
  • To our dearest marriage celebrant Karen Vaughan, words cannot explain how much we appreciated your help and hard work leading up to our wedding ceremony. We felt so grateful to have you as our marriage celebrant and being part of our wedding. Tracey and Mark.
  • Dear Karen,
    I cannot forget my daughter telling me with the greatest excitement that she and her fiance had finally interviewed the most amazing woman who was to be their marriage celebrant. I first met Karen a few weeks before the wedding and her warmth, reassurance and confidence made me believe that my “little girl’s” special day was going to be exactly that.
    In preparation for the day Karen kept us all updated and with her gentle reminders made sure that all plans kept moving. I can recommend Karen with an absolute certainty that she will provide the utmost in all that you ask of her.
    I wish Karen much success and ongoing health and happiness as she joins couples together in one of their most memorable days of their lives.
    Maria  Xxxx

Mollymook Senior’s Bus Trip to Shellharbour Ocean Swim

Mollymook Senior’s Bus Trip to Shellharbour Ocean Swim

.

On a grey overcast morning, the senior citizens from Mollymook gathered at the surf club to be picked up by the local bus and taken for a days outing.

A happy group, they posed for their photo’s to be taken before setting off on their bus trip to Shellharbour to watch the ocean swimmers. They were filled with excitement and anticipation. 

Their trip would take them through the village of Wandandian. Whilst Wandandian was only 1/2 hour into their trip, the understanding bus driver (Bruce) knew toilet stops would often be the order of the day. Here they were able to talk to the local residents who explained that the name of their village ‘Wandandian’ meant “home to lost lovers”. The seniors minds went immediately back to their youth. Those halcyon days of seemingly endless sunny days of youth and romance. Their imagination began to run wild as they inquired more about the area. The local’s went on to explain that the  ‘Wandandian area’ was not over populated and retained a rural atmosphere with hobby farms and fruit orchards. It was an area that would lend itself nicely to a retirement village. Utopia! This could be the perfect place for our retirement ….

Bawley Vale Estate – Jazz in the vines

Bawley Vale Estate – Jazz in the vines

.

The Pigeon House Jazz Band provides for a magnificent afternoon at the Bawley Vale Estate, relaxing, sipping on some of the magnificent 2010 vintage wines just released.

Vineyard owner Maurie Abbott’s approach to wine making is simple: produce wines loved by 80% of the wine drinking population.

This is a diametrically opposite approach taken by previous owners looking for something unique for Bawley, perhaps trying to impress the <20% of wine connoisseurs. I’ve tasted the former vintages and in my opinion these recent vintages produced by Maurie are superior. I’m of the opinion that these latter vintages are real winners for the Bawley Vale Estate.

I’m look forward to the local wine show with expectations that the judges will likewise demonstrate the distinction I am suggesting.
