Casino, NSW

We have been at the RV Resort in Casino for nearly a week now. We arrived here on Tuesday 17th Aug after spending a night at a roadside camp just outside Ballina called The Bicentennial Gardens. It didn’t take me long to settle in, I was off to craft with the Crafty Travellers in the Craft Room on the premises. A lovely lot of ladies most of them were into card making but a few were knitting and crocheting. I found out after that card making is done on Tuesday afternoons but you can still do other things if you wish. I also joined them on Thursday. It was great to spend some time with other likeminded ladies, so I will take advantage of this opportunity to explore my creative talents. LOL I must comment on the facilities here they are excellent and immaculate and I might add, very reasonably priced. There is a BBQ Hut, Men’s Shed and Club House. They offer many different activities from exercise to Art. The sites are nearly all drive through with plenty of room. They also house permanent residents in beautiful homes and there is a lovely village ambience to the place. Bill hasn’t been lonely as there is the HF Radio Hut here and he spends most mornings and evenings over there talking to everyone on the radio from all over the east coast and even WA. Wednesday we drove over to Grafton to map out our route for our next camping spot. Grafton looked like a much larger town with a big shopping centre. I managed to slip into Lincraft for 5 mins before Bill arrived to cramp my style. Grafton area didn’t seem as lush and green as here in Casino. Perhaps there has been a shortage of rain. On the way home we took another direction and followed the Clarence River some of the way.

 We even crossed the river at Bluff Point and caught the ferry across.

 Friday we ventured over to Evan’s Head for a day visit, first point of call was into Shark Bay where we were greeted by lovely rugged views of the point.

 The weather was a bit rough and the waves were breaking against the rocks.

 We then drove up to the Coast Guard to the lookout at Razorback Bay.

 We talked for a while to a trio of fishermen and fisherwoman who were cleaning their catch on the lovely fish cleaning tables in the Marina.

 The waste slides down the table to feed the pelicans waiting in the water. Evans Head is obviously a Fishing Village.

We enjoyed an excellent meal of fish & chips at the local fishery and it was lovely and fresh. Broadwater was our next stop after passing through lots of sugar cane fields. Broadwater has a huge sugar mill.
Talk again soon
