When we were visiting Grafton, we were so lucky to meet a blogging friend, Karen from "Pieces of Contentment". I have always admired her photographs, her quilts and the stories about her big family. She is so calm and "content" and yet she doesn't have an easy life. She is an inspiration. It was a convenient coincidence, that without knowing, I had booked a B&B in the same street as where she lives. One afternoon, Karen took us for a walk which took us over Grafton's iconic double decker bridge.

The bridge was opened in 1932. It has a pedestrian walkway on both sides of the lower level.
There is also the town's water pipeline on the lower level.
From the bridge we could see the ever beautiful Jacaranda trees and ...
the usually peaceful Clarence River .
We walked a short way along the bank of the river, where we saw two big yellow tailed black cockatoos high up in a tree. I like the yellow spots on its cheeks.
