Our house in Merewether, 1966

My nickname in Spain (of which I was very proud) was Don Quijote. We named this, our very first own home 'Quichote' using the Dutch spelling. On the front balcony, which overlooked the Pacific Ocean, are Antien and Babette with our friends Bas and Jantine Hensen. Bas also had studied Geology at Leiden University. They arrived in Australia just two weeks after us. We got on very well and shared many wonderful weekends together.
