Remember When Road View Was A Fishing Village?


Those were the days of picking roe out of fishing nets hung out among the coconut trees, eating "grub", scrubbing off barnacles, boiling shark oil, telling stories of the big fish that got away, and the men who never returned - Bruce, Tassie Moona and others.  Add your memories, stories, etc., of Road View as a fishing village below.
