Sunrise on the canal

Thu 29th December 2011

We were up early today to head back to Sydney but there was time to take one last picture of this gorgeous sunrise.

I had to get up at 5:20am to get this photo, but it was worth it! Lovely sunrise!

They get the best of both worlds here in Pottsville. A stunning sunset and sunrise.

 

Byron surfers

Tue 27th December 2011

After our walk it was time for a swim in the sea! We had a refreshing dip and watched the surfers for a while.

Matt says...

This is where my 70 – 300mm lens really comes in handy! I got some great pictures of some of the surfers off the coast. No idea who he is but he looks like he is having fun!

Long way up

Tue 27th December 2011

On the way back up the sun came out and Matt snapped this lovely picture of us (struggling) to get back up the hill.

Matt says...

Getting down the the most easterly point was the easy part. Getting back up in the thirty plus degree sun was the hard part!

Claire says...

The sun came out and boy was it hot walking up all those steps!

 

Easterly path

Tue 27th December 2011

This steep path led us out to Cape Byron – as far East as we could possibly go. We couldn’t see New Zealand though! :)

Matt

Matt says...

Well there you have it. The most easterly point of mainland Australia!

Lighthouse lookout

Tue 27th December 2011

Here we are at the lookout just beneath the lighthouse at the top of the hill. Great view!

Matt

Matt says...

What a strange face I’m pulling. No idea what’s going on there!

 
Claire

Claire says...

Occasionally we heard a loud crack, I thought it was thunder at first, but soon realised it was the sound of the waves hitting the rocks below.
