We headed off this morning down the coast stopping at a number of beaches on the way down to Byron Beach.
I was really surprised how many surfies were out and couldn't help wondering what they all did for a living.
Point Danger above ..... Major surf and rocks....
Went for a lovely walk along the beach at coolangata after brunch and also had a stop at "Point Danger" where there were a number of crazy surfers and boogie borders catching some pretty large waves that broke a little close to the rocks in my opinion.
Once we arrived at Byron Bay we headed up to the lighthouse where it proceeded to rain a little and we were surprised by the fact it was going to cost $7 to park the car to get out and take a couple of pictures.
This pic was taken from the car as we refused to pay $7 for a carpark for 5 minutes. :)
To be honest I was underwhelmed by Byron Bay. We had a drink stop here and on the way back we arranged accommodation for the next couple of nights which sounds very nice.
We were going to go to a show called "Stomp" tonight, however with the sunshine and driving we have decided to rest up and watch a DVD instead. Just perfect.
Tomorrow I would like to go for a huge long walk on the beach and maybe even a swim in the sea (between the flags of course) I am also going to go and check out the motorbike rental shop I saw yesterday - maybe a days ride on Friday would be fun. :) ... We'll see.
Thanks for taking time out of your day to follow my blog. Cheers, Nick.
