Location: Manning Valley
Date: September 2010
September 26, 2010. Yesterday, I took a drive out to Old Bar
just for the hell of it. It was a beautiful spring day and I got the guilts
about wasting it, sitting here at home pumping and grinding on the keyboard.
Bluey went well considering she hasn't done many miles lately, so it was
an opportunity to give her a bit of an Italian tune-up. Besides that, I
needed to at least get *something* for September before the month vanished
Old Bar is so named because it's situated at the mouth of the Manning
River. One of two mouths, actually. The other is further north at Harrington.
There's a dirt road that runs from the main beach back towards the mouth.
A couple of side-tracks provide access to sections of the beach which are
not patrolled and have no infrastucture, but are popular for serious surfers.
At the mouth, there's a park area and an ideal location for kite-surfers,
as I discovered. It's also a popular spot for picnickers, canoeists and
fisherfolk in small tinnies.
here for the photo album.
