Four impressive

I REMEMBER Pinjarra from years ago when I used to play in a band at the two hotels.

I was always impressed with the hospitality of the locals and the country way of life they portrayed.

Recently, on a fishing trip just south of Preston Beach, I met three young Pinjarra men ” Ash, Jeff and Tom ” and a fourth from Rockingham whose name escapes me.

I was impressed with their responsible attitude on the beach and they treated me like a cousin although we had never met.

They were generous, friendly and great company.

What particularly impressed me was their decent attitude, especially Ash who had very obvious leadership qualities.

We laughed and shared food around the gas light for about three hours. In this day and age, when the media seems to focus on the negative aspects of our youth, it is so nice to meet young people of their calibre.

They obviously had the country way of treating new friends and I was very, very impressed.
