for us to ride The Eagle!
A local radio station was giving away free rides on
the new 'chairlift ride' at Arthur's Seat,
here on the Mornington Peninsula.
My sister Helen sent them these photos of us on the
original chairlift when it
first opened, in 1960!
And we got selected to be two of the thirty available!
As I am on leave, and Helen had a three-hour
window in her work schedule....
we went and rode The Eagle!
To give you a better idea of how its changed,
I found this video of it back in the 60's

The view however is still as beautiful as ever!
I might need to take a quilt up here to photograph!
I hope this becomes a popular tourist attraction for
I know one family who will be getting tickets for
