FULL MOONRISE THROUGH RALEIGH TREES.
FULL MOON WITH WASHING AND MISTS AT RALEIGH.
Its been a busy day. Izzy got in from the Grafton Emporium Music Night way after midnight. The featured Beneficiaries of the night was the CLARENCE Valley Conservatorium. It meant we were both tired today but due to the Hiccoughs with registering the Charade Online ( despite repeated reassurances about its being easy) we headed to Nambucca Heads to the R.T.A MOTOR REGISTRY. It was once a quiet little office. Today was not quiet and a jocular camaraderie developed amongst the waiting customers. The beautiful Maiva, whom I recall from the 1990s and early 2000s handled my case and within minutes, the Charade was legal and all was well ! Next door to the RTA in what I think was once called Peachtree Arcade but might not have been, were two huge bears with zero explanation of what they were doing there. Luckily they were caged.
I did Centrelink as well and then out to Bowraville. Bowraville goes amongst Northern Rivers towns which have been long laughed at and which are now coming into their own. Cafes and Museums and galleries. Very nice indeed. Then back through Macksville. Checked the PO Box at Urunga and then home to Raleigh. Then Izzy who is the social one of the two, urged me into the BELLO BARDS night at GURU FOODS. Took the North Bank Road and nearing North Bello came upon the large number of cars near the NORTH BANK COMMUNITY GARDENS where the APRIL MAZE Concert was on. Damn. Forgot that one ! We continued into North Bello to say hello to the MOB there and then into GURU FOODS for the poetry. 2 tahli plates later and some excellent poetry reading, our energy finally drained away and we headed back. We will be planning to attend next month because we like the look of the BELLO BARDS.
Tomorrow is SAILING at the new URUNGA SAILING CLUB. Then the JUG BAND at Bello RSL Golf Club. For now then, bedtime, and the mere skeleton of a day’s posting. Full Moon and its a grand Autumn Night.
