    What a fabulous in the Presidio for our annual ANZAC Service & BBQ.... we had one major issue- running out of beer and white wine! We will blame it on the San Francisco sunshine!

    We were delighted to have officials from the Royal Australian Navy, Australian Army, Government officials from Australia, New Zealand and Turkey. Many ex-servicemen were in attendance and expat families came out to honor our diggers. Over 200 guests enjoyed the BBQ of lamb and NZ sausages - lets not forget the ANZAC cookies.

    HENRY KARNILOWICZ: Bring back an old Geelong icon,
    let's .... Tram it again
    FOR Christmas I came to visit my family and friends in
    Geelong. I recalled the vibrant Geelong of the 1950s with
    trams, a bustling city centre with stores like Coles and
    Woolworths, movie theatres, an ice-skating rink, milk bars,
    the Tien Wah restaurant on Malop St and a kaleidoscope of
    other shops.
    Among its icons was the GPO on the corner of Gheringhap and
    Ryrie, the beautifully landscaped Gheringhap St roundabout
    with the lovely fountain, opposite Johnstone Park, and the T&G
    building to whose clock I could set my watch and look up and
    marvel at the two mechanical characters clanging the bells on
    the hour and half-hour.
    Now, in what seems to be a myopic rush, Westfield has
    invaded Geelong and is expanding into the heritage buildings
    on the waterfront while the rest of the city is decaying and
    turning into a no-man's land with $2 stores, cash checking
    places and vacant shops.
    On the waterfront, Cunningham Pier has had a rather bizarre
    makeover, more suitable for the desert than the bay, and just
    one restaurant. It has so much potential, where there ought to
    be a variety of shops and restaurants, and access only by foot
    traffic, akin to the very popular and successful Pier 39 in San
    How refreshing it was to visit placid and charming
    Bannockburn, lovely Drysdale and the booming coastal towns
    of Point Lonsdale, Torquay and Barwon Heads.
    With much of the manufacturing industry having evaporated,
    the one other source of income is tourism, particularly because
    of Geelong's location with stunning beaches and numerous
    wineries within a half hour drive from the city centre.
    Living in San Francisco, where just a few months ago another
    tram line was added to the city wide system, I can attest that
    returning trams to Geelong would bring colour, create an
    attraction for tourists and a better source for public
    transportation, and provide better access to such places as
    Eastern Beach and Cunningham Pier. No doubt though there
    are people with vision in Geelong who will restore the sparkle to this gem of a city.
    Henry Karnilowicz lives in San Francisco.
