Thoughts on Location No 2
Hastings Point, Tweed Shire, New South Wales
The weather wasn’t the best while we were staying at Hastings Point, but all the same, our four days there were lovely. Dean had several hours surfing, we went bike riding, had a day trip down to Byron Bay and a little side adventure to Mooball.
I hope you enjoy my first thought gallery.
The waves were good for Dean even though the weather was not the best.
Dean was not the only surfer happy to be in the water.
View south from the Hastings Point headland.
On Tuesday Dean was surrounded by dolphins in the water. They were frolicking in and around where he was sitting on his board, going under him and then popping up beside him. He said the experience was so cool.
The view looking north from the Cabarita Beach Headland. It rained for three of the four days we stayed at Hastings Point.
The only pieces of shell worthy of collecting. The beach was littered with broken shells and I guess this is a testament to the fact that 4WD vehicles drive up the beach, albeit they belong to the Surf Live Saving Association.
This guy scurried across the cycleway when Dean and I were out riding and scared me into thinking I was going to fall off my bike again.
There were three of these guys that visited our van site every day, they were quite friendly and did their best to keep the bugs away.
Cape Byron – Australia’s most easterly point. The rain prevented us for visiting the lighthouse and taking the walk track down to the water’s edge.
The Famous Moo Moo Cafe at Mooball. I thought I would go to the cafe one last time and take a photo of where our youngest daughter wrote “Moo was here!” on the wall. Next to the cafe there was a lovely little gift shop that specialised in all things bovine and it was where I bought my treasured little china cow.
Sadly the cafe is now a Roadhouse and alas the walls had been repainted (probably more than once or twice anyway). The gift shop is now a motorbike museum and I decided I didn’t want to know who rides this bike.
Woke up Friday morning surrounded by Queenslanders escaping the G20. That’s our van in the front of the image. We then left Hastings Point for a few nights at Ballina.
