Coast hopping …….Goodbye Gold Coast…..Byron Bay here we come

7.45am, Wednesday 29th June, The Esplanade, Surfers Paradise, Queensland, Australia

It’s a big eye squintingly bright powder blue sky ot there today, as we coast hop south from Queensland’s Surfers Paradise to Byron Bay – jewel in the crown of the Northern New South Wales coast beaches……..and the home turf to several generations of sun chasing hippies and alternative lifestylers! I like the town…..and always leave with my back re aligned and my head straight! So goodbye Gold Coast…..had a top time, but I’m off to do a one night wine stand at Byron.


A bit stormy on morning number one….


But a dramatic improvement on morning number two….


Welcome to the BMD Northcliffe Surf Lifesaving Club…..that’s kingfish sashimi with our exotic aromatics…


Chef Chris the food wizard is ex the Palms Resort, Dubai….


Does excellent Pork belly…


And a killer soufflé! Bring on the big Rare & Fine lunch this time next year at the club. 

PS Thank you Montmartre By The Sea Cafe on the Esplanade at Surfers – three days, three great breakfasts & seriously good coffee. Just me, the locals, and the Lycra clad street warrior cyclists!

Brekky view this am
