Holiday makers soak up the sun

SITTING in the sunshine and watching the 'passing parade' over a cup of coffee, Anne Munsie and daughter Michelle Ferguson were making the most of the final day of their holiday in Yamba yesterday.  

Today the ladies are heading home to Wyong and Sydney respectively, but while in the Clarence Valley the pair has been catching up with friends at the July Racing Carnival in Grafton.  

"I've been coming here in every July for about fifty years.

My husband was a jockey and he rode at the Grafton race meeting; when he was finished racing we would come to Yamba because he loved to fish," Anne said.  

Sadly Anne's husband Norm Munsie died while rock-fishing at Cape Banks near Botany Bay in 2004, and since that time Anne's daughter Michelle has joined her mum on their annual pilgrimage to the Clarence Valley.  

"Yamba has such a relaxed atmosphere, I don't want to go home," Michelle said.  

"We have a wonderful time. The climate is lovely, it's clean and the people are nice," said Anne.  

"We visit friends here, and we enjoy catching up with people we haven't seen since last year's racing carnival."  

At home, Michelle works for Bunnings, and Anne enjoys spending lots of time tending to her garden and some of her favourite plants, camellias, azaleas and gardenias.
