We have enjoyed walks to and along the beach, a river cruise to Iluka and upstream, opportunities to do nothing and short trips to local shops.
Dawn excels as the fisher-lady with a not quite legal size whiting on our first fishing expedition. Food and wine taste good again and the heart is strengthened. Caramelised chicken coming up for dinner with a bottle of Catching Thieves Shiraz….someone has to do it.
A visit to Maclean discovered a maternal family Tartan in this little touch of The Highlands. With each of the 100’s of lamp posts in the village and surrounds painted in individual tartans it was amazing to park alongside it.
A trip to Grafton on Saturday was rewarded with some great photos of Jacaranda which are an absolute picture at this time of year. Grafton surprised us with 90% of the town shutting up shop at lunchtime on Saturday. Siesta still reigns in Grafton!
The Yamba Sunday markets were a refreshing take on country markets with an open and friendly feel and great local produce. Many could learn from a visit here.
My energy continues to increase and we have enjoyed 9 holes of golf with the local kangaroos and a wind strong enough to blow a dog off its chain.
Life is good in The Burrow and we have extended our stay at Yamba until this Thursday and The Journeys continue.
