    Ballina Beach Feb 2018

    The Ballina Beach trip trip was last weekend. The rain seemed to put a few people off, which is quite understandable. On the drive down into what seemed heavier rain I was also wondering what I was doing especially when looking at the lakes by the road which are normally fields. But having never made it to a Ballina Trip before I was determined to get there. Luckily the weather for Sunday turned out to be a cracker with blue sky's and lots of Sun. The breeze came in later in the day but we had packed up and were on our way home by then. Stuart and Ruth stayed at the Camping ground for a few days leading up to the trip, leaving mid Sunday morning. They were able to jump into one of the cars that came down for the day trip on the Saturday, which Harry led (thanks Harry). We arrived at campsite just on dusk Saturday afternoon. There was just enough light and the rain had eased enough to get the tent setup - thank goodness. Having never stayed there before I found the campsite pretty good. The swimming pool was very refreshing. They have a large undercover meals area for guests to use. Sundays day trip turned out to just 2 cars. While we waited for Josh to find the campground (he missed the barge turnoff and took the long way round) we went and had a look at the river mouth. The view south was very nice. There were a few Dolphins playing in the waves. Once on the beach we headed down as far as the coffee rock then decided to find somewhere with a few less people and a nice gutter for the dog and us to swim in. Luckily both cars had awnings which made for a good sized area to sit under while on the beach. Most of had a swim.

    Lovely weekend, good company, thanks everyone. I have attached a few pics below.
