Saturday we checked out some of the art at Retrospect gallery , music in the park , old boards and history from the guys that came down from the Gold Coast Surf Museum. Brian, Mal, and Jack at the Community Centre , followed by Andy from Grown surfboards giving a talk on wooden boards. Caught up with Tim Baker talking about his just released book Surfari and his trip round Australia. Plenty of people everywhere and great weather. Then went back to the Community Centre to here Andrew Kidman and his band play to a movie showing behind then in the main auditorium. Great day and night of things to see and do. The surf was not grea but the water was nice.
Sunday morning I got to the beach early to help Tom Wegener and son Finley set up on the sand at Watagos. Great day and a little swell.
All in all a great weekend with lots of similar people who come to the Fish Fry for the same reason. To get together and have fun. The Byron Festival had lots of things for everyone and I am sure it will be a very successful, long lived yearly event. Nice job guys.
