The day is coming to an end here at Cabarita Beach. A cool breezeblows in from the ocean. White fluffy clouds are scattered here and there under a deep blue sky. What a lovely time of day to be on holiday by the sea. Too early to start cooking our dinner but early enough to sit in the late afternoon sun and read a book … or write on my blog.
Aaaah …. a deep sigh means that I am relaxing and it feels good to be on holiday away from the day-to-day life that one lives at home. It has been another good day here at the caravan park. A van with flat wheels was being whinched up on a truck today as we were leaving for the movies at the nearby village of Kingscliffe.
The van was farewelled by the remaining residents who came out to wave it goodbye – especially the Canadian lady who sold it and is renting a van here for a while until she leaves for the summer in Canada. She has been doing this for years. Summer in Australia … then summer in Canada. What a great life it is for her!
Meanwhile, Geoff and I became celebrities after we saw the old 1954 movie ‘Band Wagon’ starring Fred Astaire and Cyd Charisse at an Art House Theatre at Kingscliffe (great old movie folks). A photographer from the Daily News asked to take our photo and it appeared online this afternoon. Not sure when it will be in the actual paper, but who cares: we are now famous!

Later today we went for our usual walk along Cabarita Beach to town to buy some milk. There are three different ways of walking to town but today we chose the beach and it did not disappoint with many activities taking place there, but my aim today was to capture some great photos of notices. I had found a few yesterday and wondered if there were more here.
I had never thought of Cabarita as being a place with a collective ‘sense of humour’ but I began to realise yesterday that it actually has one … a sense of humour that is. Perhaps when you live right on the sea in a small village, you have time to live life more lightly than if you live in a big city?
So today folks, I am going to leave you with some great signs that I captured these last two days. Oh, what fun it has been looking out for humour instead of concentrating on the sordid and the negative. And do you know what? We do not miss watching the TV news one little bit either. We have no TV here and we intend to keep it that way too!
Oh, by the way, the Art House theatre which is called ‘Cinemax Cinema’ seats about 30 people. It is a wonderful intimate experience of cinema where you can order food or have coffee as you watch the movie. We just love to visit when we are down this way. We were attending the ‘Young at Heart Classic Film Festival’ this week. Check it out here: www.cinemaxcinema.com.au/
Now folks, enjoy my blog as today is about ‘Finding Humour by the Sea …’
