Welcome to Planet Roper - Centre of the Universe.
"God's Country" - Mervs favourite saying as he got in the boat every day. The day he and Barb launched at the boat ramp at the caravan park 41 years ago he said to her "Barb this is God's country".
WE ARE COMPLETELY CLOSED ON EASTER SUNDAY FOR MERV'S LAST TRIP IN GOD'S COUNTRY WHEN HE WILL BE HOME.
