Grandpa likes to get around. Many places are close to his heart, but Gubu Trout Dam wins hands-down as his ‘happy place’.
When he can, he packs up and heads off for a few days of fishing and chilling. Sometimes if we’re lucky we find a gap and tag along.
Time with Grandpa is time well spent. There is always something going on. You can join in or not, he doesn’t mind. He is just doing his thing. But choose to get involved and you are always made welcome.
Time at Gubu means a chance to capture the sunrise. Do we ever do enough of that?
Cliff jumping is one of Grandpa’s favourite Gubu pass-times so he shows us how.
And come nightfall, he hands the art of fire-making down to future generations.
Time with Grandpa makes you feel alive. It is a bit like being born under a lucky star….
