All that remains – Samarai PNG

These photos are part of Mr Cassmob’s family heritage: the site where their house was situated when they lived on Samarai. Sadly the house is no more, nor are the others that were their neighbours. Now the new neighbours are the Council offices. There is nothing left of the BBQ or the hibiscus or……just the memories.

The site of Mr Cassmob's family's home for about eight years in the 1960s.

Our family has heard various tales about their life here, one of the more amusing being how their cat would use the crab holes in the sand for his toilet.

Wouldn’t you like this view, looking out to sea from the house and across to Logeia Island then down to the wharf in the other direction.

Looking to the left of the house, towards Deka Deka, the small island on the left, past Logeia.

  1. Thanks for sharing the link to this blog. PNG is beautiful– It looks like a tropical paradise. I’m going to add it to my list of places I hope to visit someday. 🙂

    • Thanks Sheryl – It truly is among the most spectacular places for culture and scenery. Unfortunately in some places the crime is dire but if you can avoid those it’s amazing.
