A chance to play

Digby Hildreth

A STRANGE object appeared in the sky over Byron Shire on Monday.

Known as the sun, the heavenly body graced us for a few hours only, before retreating to its usual domain, behind sinister rain clouds.

But its appearance was enough to revive the hopes of locals that there was life beyond the rain - and to encourage these young visitors from New Zealand to take to the surf at Belongil Beach.

Coming from the Land of the Long White Cloud, recent conditions were not so alien to the Kiwi girls but they relished the chance to enjoy some good Aussie weather and splash around in our pristine ocean.

The weather gods really had cruel fun at the weekend, making the Malibu Classic something of an ordeal, especially for spectators, but they weren't able to dampen the spirit of the occasion, as can be seen from the photographs on page 29. And the sun did do the decent thing a week ago, beaming down on Anzac ceremonies and adding a light touch to an otherwise sombre event.

We include some pictures of the day on page 12.

And what do the forecasters say? Well ... it might be sunny on Sunday.
