Our Holiday part one

Hasn't this week flown it’s going to be Christmas before we know it.  We had a lovely time away it was good to see everybody again.   The day we left I decided to work instead of taking the day off.  I finished work at 9.30 home in time for an appointment with my bookkeeper  at 10.  It was the only available time he had left after I cancelled my appointment due to sickness the previous week.  Peter left at 1.30 and we were finally on the road by 3.30, not a good time to start travelling as the traffic was pretty heavy all the way from the Sunshine Coast to the Gold Coast.  We made it to Wollongbar  at 7, booked into the motel and headed over to Jon and Dan’s just in time for dinner. 

Thursday was a fairly quiet day, Tess, Lucy, my mum and I went to Alstonville to have a look at some shops and morning tea.  Found  a gorgeous little vintage shop called Ginger lily, there was so much in that shop I would have liked.   After coffee we went for a drive to Ballina .  Went to a few op shops and got a few bargains.

Friday we decided to go for a drive to Byron Bay last time I went there was 26 years ago .  It was so busy and one thing I really like about Byron there a no high rises and I love the shops , very few shopping centres.  We had morning tea at a lovely little coffee shop (I didn't get the name) the Mocha was superb as were the muffins.

After morning tea we went for a drive around Byron and ended up at the Cape Byron  lighthouse.

The lighthouse was built in 1901 and stands on the most easterly point on mainland Australia.  The view was spectacular and very windy.
