Surf, fish and chips reign

AUSTRALIA Day celebrations at Yamba were hampered by wet weather, but it did not stop people set on a good time.

Families attempted barbecues and picnics, but had to venture indoors when rain and unsettled weather moved in.

Beaches did not get the usual swarm of visitors. Convent Beach was the sand and surf of choice with surfers out to catch the decent-sized swell.

Lunch was busy at the Pacific Hotel, with traditional Aussie cuisine being the pick of lunchtime diners.

Glen Pfeffer, from Brooms Head Road, who was dining with friends, said the day would be one of relaxation.

"I think I'll have a beer and a feed and then maybe go to the beach," he said.

"It's that time of the year, so I'll have some traditional Aussie fish and chips."

Janice and Brian Eddy, from Kingscliff and Michelle Eddy and Brett James, from the Nambucca, also were getting stuck into the fish and chips, then heading into Yamba for a look around, before 'putting the feet up and relaxing' for the afternoon.
