Thirroul

On Wednesday was our check-up Finch Therapy day. We had an appointment for 10 am. Instead of taking the car, we travelled to Thirroul by train. We arrived in Thirroul with about forty minutes to spare and took time to look around a bit. I thought it was a good opportunity to take a few pictures.

This sign was not to be overlooked as we left the station.

Along the main road close to where all the shops were we noticed this nursery.

We walked a bit further and reached our destination. Our check-ups turned out to be good. What a relief! We were told our bodies were still well aligned. But to come back for another check-up in three months.

This week is a short working week. On Monday was Easter Monday. And this week on Friday is a Public Holiday, namely Anzac Day which always falls onto the 25th of April.

I saw this sign in the window of one shop:

They advertised a wonderful package. I was thinking that maybe I should take up this offer one day. It seems to be good value.

  1. Like the pics Auntyuta,I have never heard of Thirroul, something for me to google now.
    I especially like the picture of the post office, that building is definitely from an old era, maybe the 60s or 70s.
    Good to know you are both still in fine form.

    1. Here is a bit about Thirroul that I googled and perhaps may interest you, Ian:

      Thirroul features in the musical piece Small Town by Australian composer Peter Sculthorpe. A note published by Faber Music[4] states that forty years after the visit of D.H. Lawrence and his novel Kangaroo, “Peter Sculthorpe envisaged Thirroul as the quintessential Australian town, frozen in a more innocent time”. The music evokes the architecture of the town, the township monument and includes a rendering of the Last Post evoking an Anzac Day ceremony at the town war memorial.
