    Tales from Byron Bay

    This mob in Byron put on a rain dance the other day and lo and behold it rained, first time for awhile.

    You will regret that last comment. That large black flock of black and yellow cockatoos stay overhead every arvo and are lobbing giant poops everywhere on my residence, solar collectors, car and new shiny roof. Found out recently that the missing Belgium backpacker went right past my place into thin air - I think he had a midnight swim and got dragged out, that is a treacherous beach complete opposite to Bay side.

    A bit of a thunderstorm brewing in Byron - it is impossible to accurately predict the weather here. The surrounds of Ballina and GC are so dry.

    It was heavenly being able to park car annd trailer anywhere in the main drag taking up 4 spaces. With QLD border closed we were over crowded during recent school holidays.

    Speaking of Byron Bay - it gets a mention in Snopes:

    In October 2020, a video supposedly showing a moonrise near the Cape Byron Lighthouse at Byron Bay in New South Wales, Australia, was widely circulated on social media: ...
    The stunning visuals in this video — mainly the eerily bright and large moon — led some to be skeptical of this footage. Generally speaking, this is a genuine video of a moonrise over Byron Bay. That means the moon in this video is not a computer-generated image. However, the moon would not appear this big with the naked eye. It requires distance, a long lens, and some photographic know-how to create this visual.

    ^ I can even see Peter Garrett dancing in that pic. Certain times of the year there are terrific shots here. Some beaches are presently scoured out but will repair eventually.

    Here's another shot to enhance the visual effect with some imaginary live music (no photoshop here)

    You did not give warning that may be showing pic of someone since deceased. The guy could be chess player George but had 2 legs a few years ago

    About Theo almost all locals I discuss with believe he went for a late swim and got sucked out. Tallow beach can be treacherous at that end. A few backpackers on boards died there not long ago. I wouldn't swim there in a fit and I have taken on all comers.

    The only serious crime here is white drug dealers - even Olympians. There is a over represented minority group of them that I won't mention.
