Our youngest son whilst recuperating from a broken ankle, dragged out his box of magic tricks and decided he required some much needed new material and props to practice.
Off we trekked with "Nanna" in tow (who has been a fantastic help with youngest at home), to “Mad on Magic”, at 114 Griffith Street Coolangatta, madonmagic.com. It is a great little shop with everything a budding magician could need. They also have a great supply of fancy dress costumes and awesome Christmas present ideas.
Filled up on props it was a beautiful day to take a drive further down to Byron Bay.
Byron as always is a hive of activity, awash with people, chilling out by the beach or exploring the numerous shops and cafes to "people watch". We found a great café for lunch “The Junction” @ 85 Jonson Street with delicious burgers and NZ Green Lipped Mussels. The youngest has now taken a liking to these and keen to add these to his repertoire of home cooked dinners. He whips up mouth watering Oysters Kilpatrick and the best Saffron Chicken Kebabs! Unlike our eldest son who’s menu currently consists of anything fast "and he means fast" like McDonalds or Pizza! Lunches at The Junction are an awesome price.
We were limited with our dear one on crutches to wander around but I did find a great little t-shirt shop. You can’t go past Ghanda on 3/8 Lawson Street, www.ghanda.com. Beautiful and comfortable printed cotton t-shirts at a great price.
The beach as usual was alive with people, abeit windy with huge waves rolling in.
Byron Bay creates it’s own magic.
