HEAVY RAIN AND LOST COUSINS AND THE BOXING DAY SWIMMING CARNIVAL

DSCF9355 I went south briefly this week for family reasons. Down to Port Macquarie. I returned with a Niece who has been in the U.K. for a couple of years. She was born in Mt Tom Price to Urunga Parents and they brought her back to Urunga as a baby and she grew up right here in the Shire.

Meanwhile – here in 2010 – I bring her back to the Valley and the rains come. A lot of rains. Again. I am sitting in the Workers’ Cottage on a rainy day and taking a good look at my Historic Newspapers. I am choosing between 3 major topics today.

a. swimming in URUNGA – due to the Sea Lido Issues.

b. rain in the Bellingen Shire – due to the RAIN.

c. surnames of present day fans as they appear in the Historic Newspapers.

0 Degrees Celsius is not what I had planned. Down here on the flats near the Coast, I was mocking Bellingen and Armidale until this morning when the frost settled on the bottom paddock and ice formed on the windscreens. I don’t think it would rank as particularly intimidating ICE but 7 years on the Tweed had left me unexpecting.

SAILING IN URUNGA

MAP OF URUNGA

http://www.urungaheads.com.au/

I have lived many years of my life in Urunga and on Sundays I often saw the sailing boats rounding the V wall.

I was once lying in the shallow water near the Sailing Club just floating at peace when Odin, the Staffie, Protector of women and children, took it in his head to rescue me from what he thought was drowning. That attracted the attention of nearby sailors and the disabled and it took some explaining and some claw marks on the shoulder to rise to my feet and miraculously walk out of there. Odin and I frequently found ourselves in  mistaken situations.

Izzy was once Chairman of the Illawarra Sailability Group and he has spoken often of that and looked for Sailability in each town that we have lived in. Now he comes to my small town and just in time for the launch of URUNGA SAIL TRAINING CLUB. First of May 2010.

My father, Bruce Sanders, walked out along it most mornings for many years and then along the beach to HUNGRY HEAD where my mother, Joyce, would pick him up and bring him home. They swam at the Lido almost all year. The Lido was the name given the swimming area here inside the Rock Wall. Its been through many stages and phases. I hear that there are moves to close it off. To make it accessible only by foot etc.
