Our beloved sister Colleen and her lovely husband Graeme live in a little oasis, Pompoota, out Mannum way. “Where” ? We hear you cry. “ Mannum,” we reply, and when you continue to stare blankly we helpfully add, “You know, out Murray Bridge way.” “Ahhh”, you respond, and settle back comfortably in your chair, confident now and secure in your knowledge of this place and that and of your relationship to it.
Now you see the great River bending through the red dirt cliffs, winding its way towards the coast to keep its date with the foaming Southern Ocean.
