|FLOODS OF 2009|
|HORSES AT FRONT FENCE
ETC IN CHURCH ST BELLINGEN
|In 1981, on this day, my son was born. He is a fine young man now with a family of his own. Happy Birthday, Son.
Here in Raleigh, its a sunny day with only white puffed clouds. For me, that’s a relief from the rains and grey clouds. I have washing to hang and hair to wash.
The Willie Wagtails are on the porch and King Parrots in the trees. I have a sister. She loves birds and takes very beautiful photographs of them. Below is a Jabiru.
Her husband recognises more bird calls than anyone else I know.
I was in Urunga a couple of nights ago. After dark and in the rain. The lights were on in the Chemist and I was standing watching the poster of Inner Health. I couldn’t work out whether the little blue furry people were the goodies or the baddies. My family could do with a lot of the Goodies at the moment.
A wee dog is visiting at the Main House. She seems happy but our own big old dog is over here paying a visit and keeping well away from the Intruder.
Skies are blue today. The aforementioned hair is washed and the washing is brought in. I am taking a home day. Taking a few in fact due to the Charade being in Repair Shop and Izzy going to Grafton for some gigs.
I am going to take some Eremitic Time. Just need to bring in a little more food and all will be well. We are now established here as far as phones and internet. We have been in residence since 12 March 2010.
|On the weekend, we brunched at ANCHOR’S WHARF. It was once a boatshed called DO ME. I liked DO ME. Its down under the Urunga Road Bridge. In town now, we take coffee at the BOARDWALK CAFE.
The memories I have of former days include other Cafes. And little general stores. When we came on holidays as teenagers, I liked to get up early and sneak out of the holiday flat and come down to the Cafe for a milkshake. I had less access to cafes in the suburb of Sydney where we lived. So, in the middle of holidays, I would be sitting there feeling very grownup and free to move about.
The Cafe back then in the 1960s had BOOTHS. Classic Cafe Booths. A good deal of boy/girl contact took place in the Cafe as well.
In 2010, the Boardwalk plays host to Urunga Coffee afficionados and I suspect also to the boy/girl dynamic.
