How scream was my valley

It's amazing how far noise travels in a quiet valley. When I lived in Melbourne, with the hum of the traffic and everything else, the idea of hearing your neighbours only entered your head if they got a drum kit for Christmas.

Here in Venus Bay it's a different matter entirely. If someone's having a party across the road until 2 in the morning, you hear it like it's in your own house. Voices travel a long way in the still night air. Luckily it doesn't happen all that often and the place will return to it's usual quietness soon enough, but geez... it's hard to sleep with the yelling and screaming and the loud conversations - no matter if they're just having fun or not - going on all night.

In the words of Darryl Kerrigan from The Castle: "How's the serenity?"

Tarwin Lower Market

The Tarwin Lower Market will be held on Monday 12th March next to the hall in River Drive in the morning.

I've never been before, so I don't know what kind of stalls they have there.
