Some observations from travels

Byron Bay, Australia

Byron Bay is in the Northeastern end of New South Wales, Australia.  Know for many things such as the beautiful beaches, Cape Byron Lighthouse, funky shops, cafes and restaurants.  When you visit Byron Bay you will experience a relaxed atmosphere and people who seemed too cool to worry about issues or dramas everywhere else.

We’ve visited Byron Bay many times.  Before I remembered the place to have more people who preferred the ‘alternative’ lifestyle.  On our recent visit the place still had most of the familiar places to visit, except it felt more upgraded.  Some buildings were upgraded to modern accommodations and new retail outlets.  The beach, I’m glad to report, was still pristine.  Sadly I didn’t get to visit the lighthouse this time and missed the chance to (hopefully) catch a glimpse of visiting whales.

Here are some snaps of this gorgeous, funky town…

We arrived around midmorning in time for a late breakfast at my favourite cafe – Twisted Sista.  This cafe has some twistedly looking food.  I had to have the big breakfast!

I’m warning you, this breakfast is not for the faint of hearts, it was massive! and I was struggling.  The good news is we can burn all those calories by walking through the town centre and enjoy more sight.  And the beach… another little piece of heaven in Australia.

After a bit of walk around the town centre we needed to head down to the beach and chill.  This was the first time I saw this beach a little bit crowded with little young things clearly enjoying their schoolies break.

These boys looked like they were ready to tackle a major challenge, good luck!

And after all the walking and soaking the warm sun it was time for a late lunch…next to Mary Ryan’s we noticed a new cafe – Dip, so we had a look inside.

After consuming that hearty chicken salad we bid farewell, once again, and promise to visit another fine sunny day.  Maybe next time when the whales are there blowing their air holes across the Cape Byron lighthouse.
