I finally caught up with Kerry and we filled each other in with all the things that have been happening since our last correspondence. We unfortunately arrived at 6.30 pm so I missed out on her garden that I’ve been hearing about, but it was lovely to meet her person at last.
We left the next day for Byron Bay. I think we underestimated The Great Dividing Range. To say it was hilly is an understatement and we held up lots of traffic many times on the hills, as Fred battled towing the caravan up and down major steep roads in both directions of vertical.
Arriving at Byron Bay was a wonderful achievement. The caravan park that I had booked (which has been hit and miss on this trip) turned out to be right on the beach and the town centre is right outside the front gate. So its was definitely a hit this time. We enjoyed just being able to walk around town with lots to see and also the weather is considerably warmer, back to shorts and sandles again. Fred even had a quick swim when we arrived. We have decided to stay here 3 nights before heading down the coast to catch up with family in Sydney and then heading home. Byron Bay has energised me. There is so much wonderful artwork and vibrant ideas in this area. Today we went to Bangalow just up the road and was amazed at the wonderful shops and foody places to visit and such interesting people and lifestyles. I’ve attached a few sunset photo’s from our caravan park First Sun.
