Hopes rainy skies will clear

LITTLE Oliver Ingram is one determined child.

Squirming, poking and even pretending to bite his dad Jason, Oliver was doing his very best to break free and explore the city's tree-lined streets yesterday afternoon.

Laughing, his dad Jason held firm.

“He's always the biggest wriggler,” he said.

Jason, his wife and three children were in Grafton this week from Sydney.

After battling heavy rain on the drive up, he said he was hoping the weather would clear when the family set off again tomorrow.

“It tends to take twice as long as normal when you've got three kids,” he said.

In the meantime, Jason said he planned to do some last minute exploring tomorrow, going for a drive around the Jacaranda city before heading home.

With heavy clouds looming overhead, he wasn't feeling confident the drive would be smooth.

“If it starts raining, you'll know we've left,” he said.
