I have just read Elaine's lovely week so I thought I had better do my lovely week!
I flew up to Byron Bay, which has always been our favourite Aussie holiday destination.
The reason for the trip was to look at buying a property up there, at the moment the prices in the region are about half of that of Sydney. We don't intend heading back to Oz any time soon but feel its probably the right thing to buy property again rather than being at the mercy of the fluctuating interest rates, as in always going downward!.
We have friends that live near Byron, and they kindly put me up for a few days on their lovely property.
We popped in to see my friend's brother, who has had a very nice house and pool built recently.
The beach was as lovely as always ...
Mount Warning which sits behind Byron in the hinterland, it was named by Capt Cook on 17th May 1770.
Elaine and I climbed it a few years back!
Did I mention the nice beach, and it was 37 degrees!
Byron is the most easterly point in Australia, on top of the headland sits the famous lighthouse.
Oh, and did I mention the nice beaches at Byron, plus some are even dog friendly!!
Now I am back in Sydney, counting the days to returning to the UK and carrying on with the great narrowboat adventure, plus trying to solve the mystery of the exploding hair straighteners!!
