There was something in the air in Ballina - the sense and smell of being on holidays. The weather was wonderfully mild, despite the time of year and the overcast sky. I stayed at the Ramada, with a view right out onto the Richmond River.
Breakfast before work was in a cute little cafe on River Street. I had a coffee and a slice of fruit and nut toast with a cinnamon topping - very very satisfying. Look at these great light fixtures -
