The 28 July Luna eclipse was the talk of stargazers everywhere, including many local enthusiasts. The photo on the cover taken from inside the cave at Rapid Bay was a favourite, showing the new Rapid Bay Jetty at the bottom and the celestial objects filling the top of the cave's silhouette: Taken by Fraser @ The Backyard Universe. If you feel enthused you could always take a stargazing tour with Fraser (www.thebackyarduniverse.com.au). See his advert on page 7.
The inset Luna eclipse photo was sent in by neighbours at Normanville Heights - Mike & Tiz Gavin - who snapped this view from their balcony.
The Yankalilla Historical Society keep us informed of our early heritage with their submissions including another of their popular Historical Talks in conjunction with the Community Library.
Festivals keep coming thick and fast when you live in South Australia and this month we have the Festival Of Nature 2018 from 4th-9th September followed by the Flourishing On The Fleurieu Festival 2018 from 23rd-29th September.
The Festival Fleurieu 2019 is calling for Community Event registrations which close on 15th October.
The end of the month which is also the October long weekend will bring us the annual Yankalilla Show. As usual it will be a 'not to be missed' event on many people's social calendars and there is always something new to see, hear or generally indulge in.
School holidays start on the 28th, in time for the long weekend, making the end of the month a particularly busy time in the local area.
The Yankalilla Council's "In The Loop" section announces the new 'friendlier' dog by-laws and will be welcomed by furry companions throughout the district.
Needless to say - but I will anyway as I have a few spare lines - there is another interesting 'letters' section to be perused over a coffee at your leisure.
Until next issue...
