A wonderful cafe in Avignon. It was so funky. Upstairs was also a library. Some friends were there a few years ago and I told them about this place with wonderful food but unfortunately it wasn’t operating any more.
Saturday is a go to town day for me. I get a few groceries I need, plus have a browse, window shop and enjoy a coffee at the cafe in the art gallery. This weekend in Grafton is the Bridge to Bridge race. There are some rather large ski boats around the streets and a few in the water. I went to the river to see if any practice action was still happening. The actual race is tomorrow.
Come join me on the dock of the bay
While I was hanging waiting for some boats to appear, I noticed a rooster weather vane on a nearby house. I have been trying to find one around the Clarence Valley for quite a while. Quest achieved
As I parked the car, I could hear a couple of boats roar up the river. By the time I was there, some of those boats were just putting back to the boat ramp. This time Superman wasn’t so super.
And then there was a roar of an engine and from downstream a boat appeared travelling very fast. I should have changed my camera settings to get a better photo of the action. On that line coming from the rear of the boat are two water skiers. The ski rope must be at least twenty metres long. I couldn’t get the skiers and the boat in the same shot.
I couldn’t resist playing with the photo of the skiers a little bit. The photo was rather crap but I think this edit makes it much better. The top of the photo is the reflection of vegetation on the water
