THE HEAT IS OFF...A very vintage jacket and Indian skirts...




The heat is off... 
after the hottest summer on record in the Bellinger Valley.


J.B. and I continue to make the most of the last weeks of daylight 
saving with a delicious Friday evening ritual of fish and chips 
picnics...at the beach, above the beach, beside a river...


This pre-loved Indian skirt lit up as the sun sank in the west in Urunga -
an Aboriginal word meaning where two rivers meet. The Kalang and 
Bellinger Rivers meet here and flow out to the Pacific Ocean. 


 Lots of swishing and flow in this skirt...

...my favourite shrug making an appearance again.
 




Another gorgeous Friday evening, further upstream 
by the Kalang...this sandy, grassy bank - sculpture gallery
free of charge - seemed the perfect spot...
 
...to wander

...to ponder...
in pre-loved Indian skirt of Caro's and my Mum's 
Rain Cheta (the label still very clear) jacket which she wore
 on her honeymoon - in 1950!


The jacket's getting tired and thin in places 
but I love wearing it all the same - and they don't make 
zippers like this one any more. 











Celebrate Mother Nature's gifts...
