Home again, Home again



We’ve been back from Byron Bay for two days now, and I can hardly even believe we were actually ever there. It was a completely perfect break and hard to drag ourselves away on Friday. I was pleased to find that while Byron has changed a lot in the 12 years since we were last there, it still manages to hang on to its essential Byron-ness. We have loads of photos but most involve me in my bathers so quite obviously not blog-appropriate.

Top to bottom: Australia’s Eastern most point, where we stood and peered out at the ocean, hoping to catch a glimpse of a whale.

And glimpse we did. I know it’s pretty slight – but it made my day (holiday, even).

Poolside, lying back on my banana lounge looking up into the trees. This is probably my “happy place”… the place I close my eyes and imagine when the girls start shouting at each other, or someone is stamping their three year old foot and shouting at me.

Thank goodness for blogs – all I need to do is visit Megan’s blog The Byron Life and I am right back there.

    Everyone needs a happy place…especially with 2 kids. I’m glad you had a lovely time. Keep up the great blogging.

  5. Ah Byron! It is lovely there, I like the atmosphere more than anything else – you’re right, the way you put it, “…it’s Byron-ness”.Calm & relaxation seems to seep from the air into your bones…

    So glad you had a lovley time, the worst thing about holidays is that they have to end.

    Oh, I think I’m going to demand all bloggers visiting Byron Bay let me know when they’re coming so I can meet them all in person!!!I see a few yummy things you’ve collected while you were in Byron in the next few posts – Little Peach! That shop is my daughter’s all time favourite. So cute.

    Thanks for the linky love too đŸ™‚
