Got back from Byron Bay on Monday. It rained the entire time we were there. No sunshine, no beach. Boo. Instead the weekend included lots of hanging out in our apartment (which was amazing*), learning the art of dancing from the boys (it’s all about the windmill), dancing on tabletops at Cheeky Monkeys (and jugs of free beer to boot – win!), margarita cravings, margarita cravings being fulfilled, the worst pizza ever (jalapeño), day tripping to Nimbin (and what can only be described as the worst Sunday drive ever), and not much time spent hanging out in Byron at all. Which kind of defeated the purpose of going down in the first place. Anyway, I didn’t take many photos and the ones I did take are pretty shocking. They shouldn’t ever see the light of day. Instead here’s one I took of some tidbits I picked up in Nimbin. Apparently there is a good crystal/gemstone shop in Byron, but I didn’t get time to check it out. All the more reason to plan a return trip, right?
*Butter Factory Apartments. Highly recommended.

    I used to collect tumbled stones, and that necklace(?) looks an awful lot like my amethyst pendulum. Gem shops rock (unintentional pun)!
