Day 40 – 24/6/2019

It’s raining, and it’s here all day in Byron Bay, NSW not sure that was in the brochures.

Wet out there

That’s ok as I have some things to do in the van including a fridge clean out with a cook up. When in Coffs Harbour I picked up some lamb shanks that I haven’t had the chance to cook so out with the Dreampot and in with some vegetables and pasta sauce for the day.

With the rain not giving up I headed out to some more in door activities starting out at The Farm, a nearby cafe and farm, normally you could walk around the garden and with the animals.

but I headed to the cafe where they are apparently famous for their Sausage Roll, having had one I can see why.

Full of flavour and meat

One of the Byron attractions is a solar powered train that runs from North Byron to Byron Bay central. Not sure that today is the best day for a Solar powered train it ran perfectly to time and is easier than parking in main part of Byron.

The weather on the journey didn’t improve but this restored section of track is a great journey, although not very long.

Wet Journey Ahead

Walking down to the beach its not surprising that there were not many people getting some rays.

However the Fish head’s cafe is right by the beach and had Seafood Chowder on the menu and its hard to go past a good Chowder. I rate theirs a 6.85/10 mainly due to the base being spicy.

The main shopping area has a number of clothing shops mainly surf wear nothing that appealed so back on the train after a short walk around.

On the way back to the campsite was the Stone & Wood Brewery so afternoon beers were in order. Their craft beer range was pleasantly surprising and the fruit flavour really stood out.

That’s all today from this wet Midlife Adventure.
