Looking for Birthday presents today, we took the Young Lady shopping. The YELLOW SHED down opposite the RSL Golf Club was our shop of choice. We knew we wanted books and the Yellow Shed has books and MORE.

It had enough MORE for us to be in there for an hour or so. The Music and massed colour and movement put the Y.L. to sleep. The only complications were – a. too many items to make an easy choice and b. the eftpos failed with the shop filled with eager school holiday tourists.

Kati B and I headed back up into town to get Cash from the BCU ATM ( BANANACOAST CREDIT UNION ). The lad in front of us was so thrilled with the unexpectedly large quantity of money in his account that he near kissed the wall and DID express his love for the hole in the wall. We withdrew our more humble amounts and headed down to the Guru Foods for Lunch. Fine vegetarian food. Beautiful drinks. And I, personally, love the Girls.

kalangWay back in April 1987, we had a birthday party out at Kalang. That party was an outdoor event with Kids from all over the Valley. Cook’s Creek to Urunga.  They included the Kellys and the Poms, the Condons and more. The most successful gift on that occasion was an INSPECTOR GADGET toy. The recipient is now in training as an accountant. I still think he would have made a good detective.

I don’t know where the Cook’s Creek Kids are now. It was a long way out along Kalang and last I heard they couldn’t access their old road.

Last year, Cook’s featured in severe weather readings in April.

Here’s a site which features our weather:

kids 2 schoolWhile looking at the old birthday party photos, I came across this school photograph. It is app. 1986 and the I have included it to show the URUNGA SCHOOL UNIFORM worn by these cousins. The boys spent most of their lives dressed in GREY. The girls – well NSW loves those blue checked uniforms.

The controversial MY SCHOOL site lists these local schools.

001Life on the Bellinger has always included a lot of fishing for me. There is a far more politically correct element to the Bellingen population but I generally miss  it by an inch and find myself back in Urunga fishing.

MAY 1st sees the first day of the SAILING CLUB which is also going to teach canoe building. I am re-posting that image.
