Northern NSW

Last weekend we made a quick trip up north to visit my father-in-law in Tweed Heads.

While we were there we decided to take a run out to Ballina: a lovely town a bit more than an hour from where we were staying.  Hubby and I have never been there although father-in-law lived there for a while.

There is some wonderful sculpture alongside the river: a rather majestic pelican on the edge of the pier and fish along the pathway.  The fish are made of recycled stainless steel and are quite beautiful. 

If you want to see more of Ballina look here.

Pretty place. We have a small city not far from us with lots of public sculpture, always enjoyable to see. xox

Ballina has always been a nice little town. I am off to GC next Thursday for a couple of weeks. The Tweed is a wonderful place to visit too.

Great pictures Dian, interesting sculpture too. Isn't the sky the most amazing blue. The weather was really nice for your visit this time. I have never been to Ballina. One of my aunts used to live just over the Tweed into NSW, we used to stay with them at times. Cheers.
