Mrs. Fookes and The Marino Fish Shop.

Wow! What a wonderful story by Jaycee. Love it!

Let me tell you the story of another fish and chip shop owner. A woman too..not arrogant, nor opinionated or accusative…Oh, she was not a quiet retiring type. She had the voice and stride like a sergeant major..she would call for her child and he would hear her loud and clear half a mile away!…and woe betide him if he didn’t heed her call.

But she ran the Marino fish shop..a shop built by her fisherman husband at the high spot of the carpark that led to the rocky beach there at Marino Rocks..the beach of our neighbourhood..the gathering place of a mix of many nations , ages, young folk of both genders..young teens of the boomer generation who framed a collective there of social sharing and support that relied upon Mrs. Fookes’s  generosity as the backbone of our little collective…she was a saint, even if she didn’t realise it.

One thought on “Mrs. Fookes and The Marino Fish Shop.

  1. A good story & brings back memories of spending some of my apprenticeship days in the area in the late 1960s with the old SA Railways when Marino became the end of the line after the closing of the rest of the line that went all the way to Willunga.
