We left Byron on Sunday and drove 4 hours back down the coast to stop in at South West Rocks.
J's family have been going there on holiday for about 30 years. It's a sleepy little town perfect for people who like surfing and fishing.

First we stopped at Minyon falls which was a 20 minute drive from where we were staying.
It has a 100m drop. Looking down into the valley from the top of the waterfall was seriously freaky.

Then we went into Byron one last time to visit this great cafe J and N had discovered the day before. It was called 'Top Cafe' or something like that. It was all natural/organic/pure deliciousness. They bake their own Sourdough there too.

Then we hoofed it off to SWR.

Sunset on Sunday arvo at SWR

There were Kangaroos everywhere! We saw some absolutely enormous ones in someones back yard. Like, would have been 7 ft on their hind legs. I was freaking out haha.

On Monday morning J and I, his brother and N, headed to Trial Bay for a Breakfast BBQ
The weather was awful but we cooked up a great feed.

The water was the most amazing colour

We found out the bakery there does amazing coffee. Thank goodness for good coffee.

We stopped at Crescent Head on the way home.

Ahhh being back at work is the worst :(((
We have another wedding this Saturday, I'm probably going to have to wear the same dress again. I really, really dont want to as I think it's too soon. I dont have anything else appropriate though :( I'll wear different shoes and different hair I think.
Wishing I had unlimited funds to buy something for every occasion, but oh well.
Saving for America is more important :)

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I am secretly loving this crisp, chilly weather.

PS I bought some (faux) leather pants........ I have to put my credit card in a hiding spot now.

  7. Hi are using Wordpress for your site platform? I'm new to the blog world but I'm trying
    to get started and set up my own. Do you need any coding expertise to make your own blog?
    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Look at my weblog silver nymex

  8. I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today,
    yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It's pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

  9. Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
    The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Opera.
    I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the issue resolved soon.
