A holiday

Autumn is my favourite month.  The weather is completely divine and the trees changing colour around Canberra are nothing short of spectacular.  This year, however, I'm feeling sad to see Summer end.  The thought of the long, cold winter ahead is getting me down.  So there's nothing for it but to book a Spring holiday!  Something to look forward to over the frosty months ahead.  I particularly love it around the Byron Bay/Bangalow area, but have never actually stayed there - we've always carried on further north to Queensland.  We also always seem to be tacking our holidays on to some other commitment or family visit, so this year - no more.  I have decided it will be a holiday just for the sake of a holiday, no family ties, no-one expecting anything of us - just our little family of three doing exactly what we want to.

I found this gorgeous little cottage right in the heart of Byron on the Stayz website.  How cute does it look?  The perfect place to relax, within walking distance to shops, restaurants and beaches.  Now I don't know about you, but I simply can't relax if we are staying somewhere ugly.  And I definitely judge a place on it's bedlinen.  It can have the most magnificent outlook, be straight across the road from a pristine beach - but if there are blue and yellow starfish spritzed across any piece of fabric that I will be in 100 metres of, it's out of the question. I am already feeling relaxed just looking at these pics.  Now...roll on September!

  1. sure looks like a winner from where I'm sitting! Definitely something to get you through winter...

  2. Lovely blog, my local (unknown) friend. Keep up the good work. I can thoroughly identify with the need to escape these landlocked confines by Winter's end. Blissful spot you've selected.
