Byron Bay, Hey?

I'm in Byron now. Last time I was here I loved it. That was winter. Maybe I loved it because everyone one at college hated it. Too many people with dread-locks and long hair. Today it's not all that interesting.

Yesterday Ryan and I drove for a long time. We left home 12 minutes late. That was well done. Nothing much remarkable happened I don't think.

We stopped in Taree and worked on our hobbit feet, had some lunch and I bought some boardies.

We went to Macksville, which I was hanging out for after reading Bill Bryson's terrible review of the town. We sat in the pub and had a Coke. It was very nice. Everyone there seemed to know everyone else and they were all old and country looking. It was cool. The man in front of us leant back on his chair and joined in our conversation about the cricket. He seemed to know what he was talking about.

In Coffs we stayed in a place called "Sanctuary Resort". We booked it on Wotif after the F1 fell through. It described itself as most plush. It had a spa, sauna, putt putt, tennis, rooms with opening windows. It was amazing, in word.

When we got there it looked posh if it were 1983. I was born in 1983, so I felt right at home. They nice lady at the desk gave us our key, we inspected the room, but only found one double bed. We returned to the desk and told them we had booked a twin not a double. This caused a search for the missing single bed to be embarked upon, but alas, it was lost somewhere after room 49. They gave us a crappy little wheely bed, with a band-aid as a mattress. Ryan slept on that, he lost the coin toss.

We had a swim in the pool. That was nice. We drove around Coffs at night looking for the cinemas, only finding it after a breakfast shopping trip to Coles. We didn't end up watching a movie.

We at dinner at a little fish and chip store hidden behind a petrol station. Nothing spectacular but the cook was a nice lady who sat outside the shop with another nice lady and smoked. It was good to be there even if the food was un-remarkable.

This morning we went for an early morning swim then set off for a quick visit to Sue and Pete to drop of their Christmas presents from Janet. 2 hours later, we were on our way. We never sat down because we were always about to leave.

We've driven and now we are here in Byron. We'll leave soon.

I bought another pair of boardies (which cost way too much money) because the ones I bought in Taree didn't have enough pockets. Ryan said he'd have them.

Now I'm going to leave and pay the internet man. This computer is slow. Coolangatta here we come.
