Yamba - Day 1

Day 102 - Wednesday 21 August 2013

Temperature today is forecast to be 7 to 19 and sunny. We had a cool start to the day and a cool breeze for most of the day.

The baby plover is still with us this morning with its two parents chasing of any other birds that might be a threat. Its interesting to see Magpies and Crows run for their lives when challenged by a Plover. Mid morning we went for a walk along the bank of the Clarence River to the Yamba township - a distance of about 1.5 kms - for a coffee and a few groceries at the local SPAR store.

After lunch we drove to Turners Beach near the mouth of the Clarence River and walked to the end of the rock wall to look for whales - apparently there were two yesterday, but none today. We watched a few surfers doing their thing at the beach and watched a yacht come into the Clarence River after negotiating the bar-way.
