Like so many other Victorians, it was a special place for our family to visit. We spent a few weekends in guesthouses in the 60s, the eight of us, because my parents loved it. They'd spent their honeymoon there. My sister rang on Sunday morning as the ABC showed the razed footage -
look at Marysville...

The stories that are emerging are so horrific.
The terror and trauma is unimaginable.

oh that is so so sad.

I'm also feeling very numb about the fires. It's horrible, just horrible. I was out of town all week and news was getting fed to me second hand, I felt bad I wasn't in town while it was happening.
