The Pacific Ocean is getting a little colder with each km, but the seaside no less beautiful. Our second day in the motor home saw us to Byron Bay, NSW. I had visited this hippie hideaway with my friends Rebecca and Isabel while I was studying abroad at UQ in 2000. We had a similar shot of this gorgeous beach but from a lighthouse lookout on the cape that we couldn’t reach with our campervan.
As one can imagine, the kids enjoyed the waves with the clearest of water lapping at their feet or chasing them up the beach.
We spent some time atop the lookout at the edge of the beach we had walked, taking it all in and then lunched in the shade by this lovely view.
It was a surfer’s paradise, I’d never seem that many surf boards in one place, even when I was in Hawai’i. I don’t know how they avoided hitting each other.
Although there were some pretty skilled surfers who could avoid the folks riding out further or who had already wiped out but they made it look easy.
All in all a great, although far too brief, stop.
