THURSDAY 4 FEBRUARY     EVANS HEAD

The rain has come back – quite heavily.

We drove to Lismore, to shop. We went along the east side of the Richmond River, this time. Some of the way was across flat farmlands, but mostly the route followed low ridge lines. It was too rainy to get much of a view of what we were driving through.

We found we would fit in the under cover carpark at the Woolworths complex. Did our grocery shopping and bought some produce from a fish shop, too. We ate a late lunch in the Truck, in the car park – it was teeming rain, so anywhere outdoors was not a possibility.

We refuelled in Lismore – 71cpl. No more cheaper Qld prices.

Drove back through rain. That was a 124km round trip.

Later in the afternoon, between downpours, we managed a short walk, out to the break wall. The waves are coming over its ends, on both sides of the river mouth. There are no fishermen out there, now! It is really rough.

Gale force winds are forecast! I am starting to come to the conclusion that this is not a great time of year to be visiting these parts.

Tea was soup. I “bbq’ed” some lamb chops in the electric frypan and made some salad.

John phoned brother C to reassure him that we would be visiting, when we reach the Kempsey area.
