When we were last in Ballina, Reg and I went to dinner on the kiosk deck at Ballina Beach Tourist Park, enjoyed the great entertainment of live music and stunning fire dance performed by Utopianfire.
It was a great night.
This tourist park has been fantastic for the enormous activities they provide. I was almost sad to be leaving in the morning, despite looking forward to the remainder of my painting and exhibiting tour around Australia.
I will let the photos do the rest of the talking.
Today, we are settled in our rural retreat where I am creating art tutorial videos to pass on my seventy-two-years of art experience to others. I'm loving life, as I did during my active gallery exhibiting and art tour years.
Happy travels, and happy creativity,

Gold, is a richly drawn, evocative, stand-alone novel.
ORPHANED, BETRAYED, and DETERMINED, Jane Mutta's adventures lead her to the 1850s Australian gold rush and encounters with (highwaymen) bushrangers. Amidst the dangers, there are rocky entanglements on a coach and steamship with the explorer Douglas Fife. To survive, she will need all her resources.
Something different in the way of romantic historical fiction. This is an adventure through humour and historically tragic events. It is more than historical romance — judge for yourself; Miss Mutta breaks stereotypes.
From an Australian bestselling author comes stories of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
