Byron + Bangalow

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:

On the way from Byron Bay 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.
