The smell of the oceanTo get from Brisbane to our 2-months-home in the Tea Gardens-Hawk's Nest area, we did a 3-day-road trip alongside the east coast.
Byron Bay - From a hippie town to a tourist magnet

|The light house of Byron Bay|
The really exactly most easterly point is marked by a light house, to which you can hike up to. I wanted to get up in the morning to see the sunrise - unfortunately my alarm didn't ring! I woke up 20 minutes too late but still decided to go - and it was amazing! I am so happy I did it. Although the sun was high up by the time I reached the top, the light was amazing, the ocean was glittering and sparkling magically.
Coffs Harbour - A hidden beauty

|Stop at the Thursday Plantation|
We arrived in Coffs Harbour late afternoon - with the sun still up. I enjoyed the cooler evening on the beach with the most beautiful harbour lights, reflected by the water. The wind was blowing all my thoughts away and I got inspired by the amazing smell of the ocean. I wonder, why Coffs Harbour is not as famous for its beauty as Byron Bay. Maybe because it's so much bigger? I don't know ...
Arriving homeThe last day we missed the exit to one of the sights, we wanted to see, so we drove without stop to our home for the next two months, our basis of operation for the sight seeing tours we planned.
After over two weeks of sight seeing, being amazed and stunned, after all the walking and taking pictures, writing about it, sorting the videos and photos, I am happy to be able to relax for a while.
Our next trip will go to Melbourne and Adelaide. I will update you as soon as possible.
