The weather today wasn’t very co-operative. Had showers most of the day. We ventured out early got showered on and decided we need to read a book for awhile. While out and about decided that raincoats would probably be a good investment. We were determined to make it to the Light house. Around 3:30 the weather looked a little better (and Dean and John were bored beyond tears) so with our raincoats in hand, we beyond our hike. Down the beach, around the corner and started our upward climb. After following a sign which told us the Lighthouse up this way, we came out at a road….this didn’t appear right so down we went, then I asked directions (catch that little pun, women) and we thereafter proceeded up the correct way. The views up to the Lighthouse were stunning and it is at this end of the beach that many more surfers were out. It was quite amazing. So, we have now been at the most easterly point of Australia, literally.
Last night the hostel at entertainment which was a one man band who uses the ditigerdoo. It was very good and his music was very captivating. Meet some fine Australian women and had some interesting conversations.
On the bright side, I have found a coffee to get my morning wakeup jolt. I have found that I enjoy the cappucino. An interesting note is that on the takeout cups in Aussie, the lids are designed like sippy cups…as I sip I revert to my mothering days..at least I don’t spill..ha, ha!
Little Buddhas be prepared, we have opened a bar in Byron Bay for you all…take a look…couldn’t quit believe the name. Your dreams have come true so come on down!!!
Tomorrow we off to Mulliwambah to visit the farm where Dean woofed for 16 days. It is actually not an organic farm (as I thought) rather it is apparently a Christian farm stay place. Dean really enjoyed himself there while working 4 hours a day helping Alex to ready the cabins for their home business.
