    One of the many bridges built to this design on the MidNorth & North Coast. B-Doubles have to drive through here.

    Exiting from our short cut Centenary Drive which both bypasses the Grafton congestion & takes many kilometres off the distance.travelled. Pacific Highway ahead.

    Passing Ulmarra's Coldstream Street looking down towards the Clarence River. The local pub is the last building down on the righthand side of the street.

    North of Ulmarra. This house is on the banks of the Clarence River. The sun was beginning to be in the wrong position for more photos so I put the camera away. We are about 75kms from home.

    The hungry Dingo  ... :D.

     Loving the Jacs in bloom Joy !  thanks so much for these  :good:

    I am thinking :??:  'Coldstream' Street ,  in Ulmarra,  is named after the 'Coldstream Guards' unit not asking you to investigate it, but my research of some of the past wars leave me with this impression :)

    I remember one of your other pics now, a closer pic of the the pub on the right hand side am I right ?  , such a lovely old building along with its unusual shape to take on the corner of the street like that , is hard to forget . Have an awesome Sunday everyone and thks for the pics Joy :thanks: :photos: x

    Yes, Dawn, you would have seen images I took of shops & the pub in Coldstream Sttreet, Ulmarra in my Clarence Valley thread. :yes:  

    As for the reasons behind the name Coldstream, I also did think of the Guards when I first saw the name but somehow I don't think it was named for them. There are many uses of the name in the district. Not only is there the Coldstream Street there is Coldstream Road, Lower Coldstream Road, Old Coldstream Road, Coldstream Terrace which runs through the village of Tucabia, (phew) AND Coldstream River. :laugh:  This river is a tributary of the Clarence River which was named for Prince William, the 1st Duke of Clarence who was also the Lord High Admiral of the Navy so no connection with Coldstream Guards there. Just think it comes from an unimaginative "Gee that's a cold stream" type of naming.  :lol2:

    Hope you had a good weekend too. Today is a public holiday here for the Queen's (non) Birthday.  :lol3:
