Mrs Horgan loved Seal Rocks
Mobile shop ran by a local outside the camping ground at the first beach saved a long walk up the hill to the established shop.
Seal Rocks shop for basics like bread, milk, newspapers, canned food, confectionery, nicotine but no alcohol. Petrol pump (not cheap) and telephone box outside.
Mrs Horgan’s strong will and views prevailed for decades. Her visitors book was signed by world travelers. “Don’t you think Seal Rocks is the best place you have ever seen”? Mrs Horgan’s trademark question to strangers. (Click picture).
The post office and shop featured an old-style telephone board with Jack-plugs (no longer is use in 1983). Mrs Horgan at right.
Published by Mrs Horgan of the post office and shop, the first postcard featured a black and white taken by Ron Taylor AM – a future part-time resident with his wife Valerie. Holding the card is local professional licensed fisherman, diver-expert surfer, the late Brian Davies.
