Byron Bay 2008

Today was a really nice day.
It started around 7am. Most people would think that waking up at 7am on a Saturday would equate a crappy day - but this was for a good reason.
At 8:30am Frida picked me up and we were on our way down the coast to Byron Bay. Last time I was there was with Maija, Maria and her friend for two days. Remember that blog? We initially were going to stay in a run down, hippie backpackers and decided to pick up and leave for a different, much nicer place. And then it rained a lot while we were there.
Well... this time around we were only there for the day... and it was GORGEOUS. The weather forecast called for clouds and cool, but it was clear and warm pretty much the entire time we were there.
Frida's brother is in town for a few weeks, and they were heading down there anyway and asked if I would like to tag along. There's no way I could pass up an opportunity to get away for a bit.

We got there around 10:30am and went straight for the Lighthouse. We took a little hike up the hill, and when we reached the top we treated ourselves to some delicious ice cream: Mango Macadamia and Strawberry.... mmm. mmm. mmmmm.

After our trip to the Lighthouse we hit the beach for a few hours. Again, BEAUTIFUL. Frida and Benjamin (brother) got in the water, but I stayed nice and warm and dry on the sand.

Following our sunbathing, we walked around the shops.

And finally, we met up with Frida's friend for dinner - and we got HUGE Chicken Burgers. I should've taken a picture of it now that I'm think about it.... it was MASSIVE!! I did, however, snap a picture of the mustard bottle. Notice what type of mustard it is.

Birthday tomorrow!!! Lots of things happening... I'll fill you in later! :)
