|The sugar Industry...the cane & the Processing Plant|
We drove through the township of Ballina which has a population of nearly 25,000 people. The actual Shopping Centre is very busy, especially for a vehicle and caravan which are only passing through.
|Smokey horizon at Lennox Head beach|
We are enjoying this park which is directly over the road from the beach and facing Lake Ainsworth on the northern side. It is quite a large lake and calm today with a group of School students practising their boating skills on its waters.
Incidentally the horizon is much clearer today and the water a deep blue now the sun has emerged from the clouds and light rain we had in the night and early today.
We have had a lazy day with stitching, reading and a late morning walk. We drove to Ballina this afternoon in search of a suitable Bank for John to do business with. I had searched for a 'stitching/fabric' shop and John researched the address but when we finally found it the doors looked to be permanently closed. Tonight we will dine at a Bowls Club here in Lennox Head.
