We're back from holidays...

and what a great time we had. We visited the northern beaches of NSW. There are so many lovely beaches and towns within very close proximity of each other. We had one night in Tweed Heads, 2 nights in Ballina, 2 nights in Yamba, 3 nights in Coffs Harbour and then returned to Qld for a relax in Noosa for a couple of nights. Our favourite town was without a doubt Yamba. It is only small but has great beaches, fishing and gorgeous boutiques as well as a scrapbooking shop. We have a plan to return with our little boat and spend a week there. I would've liked to spend more time in Byron Bay to have a look around -put that on the to do list. The children loved the Macadamia Castle just north of Ballina which had put-put golf, a little train to ride on a fantastic tree house to climb and many animals to feed and pat. They also enjoyed the Pet Porpoise Pool at Coffs Harbour with the usual dolphin and seal shows but more hands on in that they received dolphin and seal kisses and were able to hand feed fairy penguins. They were just terrified of the overly friendly and rather large peacocks who were feeling a little peckish. It was very relaxing in that we ate out so I didn't have to cook and I read 3 books.
The girls out fishing the boys (4 to 2) at Whiting Beach, Yamba.
