Acrylic on canvas

This is a love story from Doris's past. Doris talks of the times when she was a young girl in the bush, swimming with her friends at Haasts Bluff. She talks of sand hills where the young people would wander naked looking for water, "chasing" the water until they found a water hole. The young men and women would swim together and make love by the water hole. Eventually, Doris explains, the young people fall in love and are married.
