I drive down the road at 6 P.M to get some takeaway , a young father with a can of Jim Beam in his hand steadies a shopping trolley with his other hand , in the shopping trolley is his daughter standing up as they wheel down the road into oncoming headlights.
An old guy with his small dog on a lead bends down to pick up a hubcap that has come off a passing car , he props it up against a telegraph pole so that the owner may find it on his next pass.
Four pre teen boys gather outside the BP servo and pool their money together to buy several cans of the energy drink called Speed
Several bewildered English tourists from the large resort stand on the footpath in Ettalong wondering where the hell they have landed and where is everyone
Teenage girls wearing hoodies walk down the main streets staring into the screens of their mobile phones.
The little takeaway I get smoko from went upmarket , I used to get a bacon and egg roll , a slice of banana cake and a Chocolate Oak for $9.80
Now I get a breakfast wrap , a Byron Bay cookie and a Chocolate Oak for $12.80
