Shopping in Byron Bay
Today we got up and jumped in the car for a drive down to Byron Bay. It took us an hour to get there. First we went to the lighthouse, the most easterly point of Australia. We were both shocked that we had to pay $7 to park and were slightly disappointed by the lighthouse and the view (it was nice but not worth $7 as you couldn’t even go in the lighthouse). We had already got Lily’s Christmas present so we wanted to find something for Rosie. After an hour we managed to find the present that we wanted. We both commented that Byron Bay looked a lot like Broome but more expensive.
We didn’t really want to look around anymore shops as it would mean spending lots of money so jumped back in the car and drove back to Coolangatta. It was late afternoon by the time we arrived and Emma’s Granddad said that he wanted to treat us all to a meal at …. Fisherman’s cove! We were both hoping that we would have a less bland meal than last time, Rob even ran up and got Joe’s sweet chilli sauce and Nan’s HP (which she normally carries in her hand bag!). We both had the snapper but Joe smothered his in sweet chilli. Emma even managed a glass of wine!
When we got back we all had another drink and then went to bed.
