It’s funny to think that I knew, a long time before I met A, that Yamba would be an ideal location for a honeymoon. Great surf, what looked like a great pub to stay in, and of course fabulous prawns.
I convinced my husband-to-be that this was where we needed to have Part 1 of our honeymoon. Also I explained to him that the Australian concept of resort wasn’t always the international one, as he was thinking that the local one might’ve been a good place to stay. So we stayed at the Pacific Hotel, that I knew was perched above Yamba Main Beach. It was so much better than I’d ever imagined when I told my Dad that I had two honeymoon plans (when I had nothing like a husband on the horizon. Plan A was a fortnight in New Orleans and one in Venice (yet to visited with A), Plan B a week in Yamba at the pub!!
We had a few days in Yamba straight after our wedding (well, after we spent a few days with our American guest). It was fabulous.
This is our eighth stay in Yamba. Honeymoon, and two babymoons (one with the toddler in tow) at the pub, one week at a townhouse across the road, and now four in the Pilot’s Cottage.
This morning I felt like we were kicking some serious life goals with all four of us boogie-boarding at Main Beach. Such a great feeling all of us in the surf together!
Then home for lunch – which included some delicious local prawns.
