Verry Happy Verry Merry Very Byron Xmas!

Very Prue, Very Melinda and Very Mick celebrating their Very Byron Christmas at the very divine Fig Tree Restaurant in Ewingsdale, Byron.

What a gorgeous lazy lunch we had last weekend at Fig Tree! It has to be one of the best locations for a restaurant in the Byron shire… and don’t they capitalise on it? Offering beautiful food, a beautiful environment and sensational views looking east over Byron and beyond to Julian Rocks and the lighthouse. One can only relax with that mix… and well, relax we did… with a capital R! We hope you get to Relax over the festive season too!

Thanks to all of you who have subscribed and commented on both the blog and facebook and generally offered support to our little venture to help get it off the ground – we really appreciate it. Special thanks also must go to all our interviewees, for giving up their time and sharing their lives with us. Without their generosity, Very Byron would still be a simple idea. The first six months has been a big learning curve, starting out of the blocks a tad hard and fast, however next year, we plan to pace ourselves more sensibly and possibly post one interview per month. We’ll be kick starting the year with an interview with local and international surfing legend and administrator, Alan Atkins. Followed hopefully by our favourite local store owners Shaz & Baz – we have never met such hard working, smiling, people and we really enjoy having our own extended personal pantry just around the corner. Then we have Michelle from Bangalow Coffee waiting in the wings. So lots to look forward to!

Catch you then for more (hopefully) entertaining chats with our locals. Cheers and Byron love to you all, Prue, Melinda and Mick.
