The pair meander from their main home, down a glorious pathway and through pristine landscaping, to reach their beloved beach house, called “The Cabin”, that sits right on the water’s edge at Chinamans Beach.
“Rain, hail or shine – we are in the water 365 days a year,” he tells me. “Unless of course we’re travelling somewhere, and then we’re dreaming of taking a dip at Chinamans,” Ken says.
“We feed the beautiful lorikeets, the magpies and if the tide is right, even a family of bream.
“I don’t fish anymore,” he says. “And even if I did I’d throw them back. When people come across to have a look at the beach house, sometimes I drop a line into the water just to make it look like I’m trying to catch something, but I’m not,” he laughs.
“I just want to look after the bream.”
