Saw some memories about Guinea Gap on here. I went there as a Kid from Moreton in the 1960's probably from 66 - 68. It was old then - Victorian I believe. I learnt to swim there (and Moreton shore) cant remember the instructors name (he had jet black hair) but he was a good bloke and taught me well. My Mum also took lessons there at the same time she was very nervous around water so it took some bottle for her to do it. ...see more
