13 - 15 June
Midday Sunday saw me make a snap decision to make use of my sister in law's, Tweed Head's unit. I was packed and away within the hour. My friend Jocelyn was to join me the following day.
On arrival, I sat on her balcony watching the river traffic, with a refreshing cup of lemon and ginger tea, before heading to the beach.
Every street and inch of grass was packed with parked cars. I had no idea what event was occurring, but ventured on, and as luck would have it for once, a spot opened as I neared. I quickly snapped up this beachside spot.
This was the event.

An explosion of 50s, 60s and 70s nostalgia
A two day event of a couple of hundred cars and market stalls. The atmosphere was very friendly and relaxed, even though there were many people milling around. I spent about an hour strolling the length of the boulevard and then the sounds of the sea beckoned me to the shore.
How fortunate am I to have this unit and glorious coast to visit as often as I please. The rain refreshed my garden, so my return home was quite relaxed and a truely spectacular sunset was enjoyed from my study window, as I edited my photographs. Life couldn't be better except for a plane ride to Canada, but that will come!
