What a Whale of a time we had in Yamba
The 12th June, 12 adventurer seekers headed to Yamba for some sun and to experience heading off shore in search of Whales. We were not disappointed, watching pods swim casually past the boat and even following at one point.
We took our time heading up stopping at Coffs for morning Tea and Lunch in Grafton and also checking out the Grafton Regional Art Gallery. Our accommodation for three nights was "The Sands" Apartments,Yamba which was across the road from the beach, which was lovely to wake up to see the sun rise each morning. We enjoyed Chinese dinner one night, a BBQ at the units by the outdoor pool and spa and the Tavern for the last night. We visited Angourie Blue Pool and Wooloweyah Lake on the third day which was one of the highlights. For a few of us we caught up with Family and friends whilst away, which is always an added bonus. There was lots of sightseeing, talking, laughter, loosing keys - oops and we always sneak in a little retail therapy.
On the way home we detoured through Maclean for more retail therapy and headed up to the Lookout for a lovely cup of tea or coffee while we took in the magnificent view. Lunch was at the inlet in Red Rock and then homeward bound!
Thank you to each and every one of you for making it an enjoyable week and a huge thank you to Marie Steele for supplying us with cakes and biscuits yum.

Do you have a bucket list of things you would like to do, places to go! Can we help with achieving them.
Many people dream of their buck lists but do not share with each other, it's time to talk up and see if any can be achieved. Some ticked off a buck list wish at Yamba being up close to the Whales. It maybe that it is something we can do on a day trip or one of our over-night trips.
So start thinking and jotting down you wish list to share with us. We don't know unless you tell.
