Tacos for Dinner!

Dinner Time!

Zucchini, Mushrooms, and Beef

On our first evening, we decided to cook tacos for dinner. When we all sat down to eat, the girls placed a card at my table setting without me knowing. Little did I know the BIG surprise they had in store for me. I was seriously thinking of how thoughtful the girls were to give me a birthday card. 🙂 For my birthday, they gave me SURFING lessons!!!! Best part of all, we were going to do it together! 🙂

SURPRISED! Love my incredibly thoughtful friends.

We went to Black Dog Surfing and they were incredible. Our awesome instructors were Simon and Dominic who made sure we were safe but having a great time. We did a bit of stretching (reminded me of yoga) and they gave us a four step process on how to stand up on the surfboard. I really enjoyed how they made everything sound do-able and really emphasized how important it was to make a cool pose once we were standing on our surfboards. They did not focus on falling but if we did, we were to fall like starfish! Believe it or not, I stood up on the surfboard and even SURFED!!!! 🙂 It was a WHOAH moment to interact with the water like I had never done before. I can’t wait to do it again.

The rest of the weekend was spent eating delicious food from Soup Bowls, Fishmongers, and In The Pink and enjoying the beach. We also went for a hike at the BB Lighthouse! The views are breath-taking and is worth a few hours of your time. Who doesn’t loved to be hugged by a beach? That’s exactly how it feels because you are surrounded by water on both sides. We hated to say goodbye but know that we’ll be back. If you are ever in the area, don’t pass on a trip to Byron Bay!
