Byron Bay and Brisbane
I have been away from the computer for the last week. We took a road trip up the coast to Byron Bay and Brisbane. Byron is a beautiful spot with a famous lighthouse. It also has the most eastern point in Australia. We stayed there two nights and were lucky enough to be there on market day.
We also stopped at the Natural Bridge. The water has worn away a cave leaving a bridge of stone. There is a walkway through the temperate rain forest and you can go into the cave. We saw bats and at night there are glow worms but they must sleep in the daytime.
We went on to Brisbane, where our daughter and son-in-law had gotten us tickets to see Cyndi Lauper in concert. What a fantastic show that was! I have never seen anyone with so much energy. She sang all of our old favorites and a few new ones as well. We totally enjoyed that evening.
Finally, here I am enjoying an early morning latte (well, actually waiting for it to be delivered in this photo) at a seaside restaurant in Byron. What a life!
