    Jacaranda Festival - Grafton

    November 2, 2019 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    The Jacaranda tree has beautiful purple blossoms in spring time! Grafton is famous for these trees. Every year they choose a jacaranda queen and you can try jacaranda ice cream. Furthermore we spotted several people wearing purple clothes! However we don't know if this was planned or just by chance haha.Read more

    Some more photos....

    August 20, 2020 in Australia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C

    Look for the the outdoor seating area hanging out from the hotel, overlooking the Clarence River in the main photo.
    The flood waters were over the floor of that outdoor dining area in 2013.
    How high did the river have to rise to reach that height!!!
    Grafton Main Street was also flooded.

    I bought new earrings in Grafton.

    I rang the Courier company to check on the status of my Director’s Chair.
    Had been delivered to Daryl’s 15 minutes ago.
    Yah!!!
    Lacey and I sped off in Tin Tin to pick it up.

    Much fanfare at camp as I cut the packaging...
    Bit exciting.
    Great chair.
    Wrong colour.
    I ordered green.
    Got blue.

    My sun shelter is green.
    My hammock is green.
    I wanted the green Director’s Chair.

    Regrouped.
    Looks nice by the van.
    Who cares what colour it is.
    It’s very comfortable!

    So we ate outside in the twilight tonight.
    I sat in my chair!

    Lovely day.
    Had fun with Lacey going crazy on the beach fetching a stick.
    She’s never done that before.
    She’s been watching all the other dogs.

    Oh ... and only 4 hours from Brisbane when we were in Yamba.
    That put things into perspective.
