3rd January 2016
5am and the alarm goes off inside the hot Byron tent…
Our genius idea was to get out of tent city before sunrise and beat the other partygoers to the highway. The last thing we felt like after the past few days of partying at Falls Festival was to be jammed in traffic on dirt farmland roads…no thanks.
Our plan worked. Not only did we beat the other partygoers, we did not even see another car to the highway! Ha.
The thirty minute drive to Bridgette’s house was fairly somber. We were all too tired to even talk. ‘Just get home’ seemed to be the general consensus this morning.
Back at Bridgette’s we showered and slept, or at least Amanda and I did. We both agreed that we needed a few more z’ss before we tackled the rest of the day whilst poor Bridgette had to work…sighs.
Awake and feeling back in the land of the living, Amanda and I treated ourselves to a yummy breakfast at Ginger Pig Byron Bay. Salmon, avocado and spinach was where it was at this morning.
We were feeling a little wander to the local Byron Bay markets. I could have gone crazy! There were so many quirky little buys, pretty hippie jewellery and creative works of art. We also made some little purchases at Spell Design.. argh I love that shop!!
We slept a little more in the afternoon prepping ourselves for another night in out in Byron Town (we have been totally lagging on sleep since we arrived in this summer time party destination).
Dinner tonight was at a yummy Thai little restaurant. The car ride there was no different to any another… one again filled with laughter. The highlight for the girls seemed to be laughing at me attempting a curb side park right out the front of ‘The Beachie,’ the place where we were partying at tonight. I was deso driver and trying to park the car in the tightest car park in the world. Yet after about ten reverses and attempts at straightening the car, it was all too much for the girls. Wetting themselves in laughter and pointing at me through the outside of my window, my aching arms were burning and it felt like minutes as I struggled to turned the wheel one way then the other. Red faced and sweaty, I eventually retreated from the car, stressed that I would not be able to get the car out later at night! Gahhhh.
The Beachie was loads of fun. Sneaky Sound System were actually playing… a little blast from the past but it was kind of fun to dance to old songs reminiscing of the day we first turned 18! The place was pretty packed. It was a fun way to see out our Byron party week and wind down from all the previous nights’ festivities.
