we got of the coach and headed to are hostel the art factory this is more or a holiday resort than hostel its a amazing place you have 3 parts, the out side teapeas and wagon tents which are cool you have the dooms were all the ozzys stay at the weekends then you have the camp site were its a really hippy town and so layed back these people are the people who live in their tents for years and all day smoke weed drink goon and make and play instruments and every now and then work for a bit off money. the teapea we stayed in was really cool and had such a good bed. their were lizzerds and turkeys running around one of the people staying their even had a parrot on his shoulder.
the following day we were woken to a lound humming noise this was the birds and crickets it was so loud but peacefull at the same time. we headed into town to go to the beach we got as fair as the town center and a tropical storme hit the coast. we ended up spending 3 hours in a shop called tribal travel and booking up 2 tours 4 busses and 3 hostles, when we arrived back tto are teapea we found the teapea roof not as water proof as it should of been. both of are beds were socked from the storm just are beds though. luckly it didnt happen durring the night because i would of thought o no its happened again iv wet the bed, a free upgrade to a wagon called the island retreat well a double bed in a private tent next to the swamp :-). that night we went to a new bar which was just opening called woody wood shack this was a small place but was quite livley.
the next day we headed to the beach to go on the walk to the light house on the cliff. which wasnt to long only 3 km. the walk was through a jungle path which climbed up to the lighthouse. . we arrived at the top of the hill and had amazing veiws of byron bay. after a ice cream at the top we started to watch a storm come in over the sea at this point it was time to head back to the art factory. luckly we made it back and even made it in time for happy hour woow. the bar at the hostle brewed its own beer which was good.
the next day was beach day and we spent most of the day in the sun and sea their were loads of fish in the sea i tryed to catch them with my hands thats how close you can get to then. after a good 5 hours in the sun talking about the snow back in england we decided to head back to the hostle. we had a really nice dinner at the hostle and we chilled out with a few beers watching the bands who were playing.
are last day in byron qnd we decided to not do much so we just sat round drinking and meet up with a guy we met in coffs, the stranges thing is that as we was talking to him about hawaii we workeed out that we were their the same time he was their and even remembered talking to him. it was strange to think we meet him half way around the world now speaking to him again.we decided we cant sit round a swamp all day watching the hippys get high and dance around with sticks so went into town for some lunch we decided to go see a film so saw the due date which was funny.
tommorow we head off to noosa and we are planing to by a ukulele to keep us entrtained plus a book to learn how to play it.
