The Clarence at Sunset

I was sitting on the banks of the Clarence River looking out towards Maclean and playing my guitar recently as the sun was setting. The smoke from the fires at Sharks Creek was still in the air and I was thinking to myself how beautiful the sky looked.

Living in the Clarence Valley is a wonderful experience. We were out with friends yesterday from Melbourne and they were lucky enough to see dolphins in the Clarence River at Yamba, kangaroos in our front yard, kookaburras along the fence, koalas in the trees along the roadway, and whales at the beach looking down towards the Bluff at Iluka.

What a great day. We came back and enjoyed each others company.

This morning before they left we had a quick mini harp lesson to send them on the next leg of their journey. I hope they have a wonderful time up north.
