What did you get up to this weekend? We recently took the kids to Byron Bay after Coach and I learned that we had a sport free weekend. Let me tell you, these are few and far between, but what an amazing opportunity for a road trip!
Here are a few photos of our day out in Byron Bay if you’d like to see.
First stop upon arriving….food!
There are so many delicious options at Byron Bay for food it’s hard to choose what to eat and where to stop. When you stay somewhere for a couple of days you can spread yourself out a bit more, but when you are on a day trip, you really only have the opportunity to stop at a couple of places.
Once such place, or the place we stopped to eat lunch was the yummy Miss Margarita’s, which is located in Jonson Street, right next to one of my favourite stores, The Byron Bay Hat Co. It seems that each time I go to Byron, I have to stop and look in this store, and unfortunately for my credit card, I always walk out with something new.
Next on the list was a frozen yoghurt (of course!) and a trip to Main Beach to chill and relax whilst devouring our cold delights.
The cool thing about Main Beach is the big grassy areas. There are always loads of people lounging around, eating and catching up and today we were lucky enough to have a some local talent singing and playing the guitar whilst we soaked up the euphoric vibe.
This picture makes me laugh. I attempted to take a (casual) photo from behind and was asked, where do we look? I suggested that they act natural and look anywhere, this was the end result! Skywards! What the?
When lunch had finally settled, it was time to tackle the lighthouse walk and take the kids to the most Eastern part of the Australian mainland.
We couldn’t have chosen a better day as we were blessed with amazing weather and gorgeous coast views for as far as the eye could see over Tallows Beach, which is on the southern side of Cape Byron.
There it is down there….the most eastern part of the Australian coast.
The walk is pretty easy, however it is a little steep in parts but overall well maintained. Keep a look out for wallabies and other wildlife frequenting the conservation area as we saw a few.
Once we were out at the point we took a seat on the grass and sat watching the fishermen , whilst keeping a keen eye out on the horizon as we are now in whale watching season and we are pleased to say, they didn’t disappoint with their frolicing and breaching.
It was great to see the delight on the kids faces as they were enjoying the peacefulness of it all and the excitement of standing at the most Eastern part of Australia , also Miss Y seeing a whale for the first time.
The rest of the afternoon was spent hanging out at the beautiful Wategos Beach watching the surfers and this scrub turkey eating a banana that it had grabbed from this bag.
Byron, we had a fabulous day and can’t wait to come back.
Have you been to Byron Bay? Are you lucky enough to live there?
