12 days of Christmas: day 7

The next few days I’m featuring photos from our holiday in Australia, specifically NSW and Queensland. We had such a magical trip, with so many highlights, that it was difficult just to distill it into a few pictures. Here’s one of the sun setting on Tallow Beach in Byron Bay. We stayed in a hotel in the sub-tropical rainforest just a few steps from here and enjoyed many a walk along the beach, particularly at dusk. It’s hard to believe that there are now fires ranging out of control not far from this idyllic haven and my thoughts (and prayers) go out to everyone affected in NSW and Queensland.
