Day 7 & 8 - Byron Bay


The bluest sky I have ever seen.

Just call us beach bums. We have spent the last two days at the beach enjoying the magnificent unspoiled beaches of Byron Bay. We have been running, eating, swimming, eating some more, playing in sand, playing in the ocean and eating for the last two days.


Here are our gracious host Janet and Simon.


Their youngest daughter Susie.


And their oldest daughter Jessica.


Gemma building a sandcastle.


Today we walked up to a light house and to the the most easterly point in Australia.


Then we started our walk down to the beach.


The sea was amazing!




Susie paddling in the water.


Big sister Jessica paddling too!


Mom Janet was helping the kids.


Gemma was loving to pose in her bikini.


Luckily we were at a nude beach.



Angus also enjoyed his paddling.

Tomorrow we are heading off, but not sure where yet. We have been having a lovely time and have really enjoyed the weather. After 10 years in Arizona and then 4 months in Chengdu it is so nice to have the sun and blue skies. I definitely won't take it for granted again.

What great pictures. You guys look like you're having a great time. : )

I can't even remember the last time I went to the beach. And it definitely wasn't as nice as the beach you were at.
