Who does not love a frangapani?

Who does not love a frangipani?

Imagine going to a wedding. You find your seat and there on the table for each guest is a neatly  package living frangipani stick ready to be taken home and planted in your garden or a pot.  What a great idea. What a beautiful way to remember your friends wedding.  Sit back and watch it bloom.  I am taken with this idea. It think it is a winner.

Byron 2 Tweed specialise in all things frangipani.  Postcards, gift cards, prints, canvases, plants and of course gift sticks.  You can find them at the Byron Bay Markets or call them on 02) 6677 1980.   They will happily mail anything out to you.   You can also visit them on line at www.byron2tweed.com.

Byron Bay. Overcast and still looking good.

March 13, 2009
There is a walking track up to the lighthouse from  the eastern end of Watego's Beach.  Many steps included!!

This shot is taken from the walking track up to the lighthouse at the eastern end of Watego's Beach.

At the other end of Watego’s Beach are several free BBQ’s.  When the conditions are right it is a world class spot.

Between Main Beach and The Pass (the right of this picture) is Clarke’s Beach.  It is a great spot for the novice surfer.  

The sun may not be out but the water is still warm.

On Main Beach this afternoon there was plenty of activity despite the overcast weather.  Note the wreck of the Wollongbar in the background.

Byron Bay is an especially picturesque place on a sunny day.  These pictures were taken on Sunday (8th March 2009) all at the top end of  town.

The Wreck is an iconic Byron Surf spot named after the vessel Wollongbar which broke from its moring and sank during a cyclone in 1922.

Fiercely defended building restrictions help Byron Bay fend off high rise development.  The low roof lines contribute greatly to the relaxed  feel of this special little town.

One of the ever popular ways to spend a Sunday.  Ocean views and live music.  Someone’s got to do it!
