We are home this week from our little getaway to Byron Bay. It was so lovely - we relaxed, shopped, ate and drank. Perfection. The weather was a bit rainy at times, but it was warm and we were just happy to be away. Such a beautiful part of the world.
Check out this view looking back over to Byron Bay on our way to Bangalow:

We spent quite a bit of time in Bangalow, a cute little town about 10 minutes from Byron Bay. It's not huge, but filled with gorgeous little homes, shops and places to eat. I think I spent enough in Bangalow to keep the economy buoyant for the rest of 2010. More on those purchases in a later post.

Is this not the cutest little chemist that you ever did see?

Our accommodation was perfect. I highly recommend San Juan for any families looking to get away - plenty of room and a large enclosed garden, good for little monkeys to run around and play. It's tucked away in a little laneway, so is quiet and peaceful but within walking distance off the main part of the Bay. I loved the beachy feel of the decoration too. Even when it was raining, I felt summery and on holiday.
