Yamba - Day 2

Day 103 - Thursday 22 August 2013

Forecast today is 9 to 19 degrees and sunny - a little warmer than yesterday.

We spent the morning sitting in the sun and reading the papers. Our baby plover is still with us today. On the Clarence River the usual fishing activity is in progress, although the commercial fishing boats show no signs of activity. The caravan park provides a good location to sit and watch the activity on the Clarence River.

As the Australian Electoral Office proudly advertise that pre poll voting is available from 20 August for travellers, we thought that we would drive over to nearby Maclean to put Kevin07 out of his misery. The AEC website directed us to 48 River Street in Maclean, but no activity here. The Information Centre did not have a clue and directed us the Council Chambers, where we were advised that Pre Poll voting would not be available in Maclean until 4 August 2013. We will try our luck again in Nambucca Heads.

We decided to wander around Maclean and find a spot for a coffee. All over Maclean the power poles have been adorned with Scottish tartans - The Mackenzie tartan took our fancy.

After returning to the caravan park we started the process of packing up so that we can get an early getaway tomorrow.
