During my stay there, my duties included planting trees, weeding, trimming vegetation, cleaning one of the cabins to prepare for construction, feeding chickens & generally giving a hand here & there to complete various tasks as they arose. The work was always enjoyable & Robin was forever within reason with his projects.
As a host, Robin was absolutely wonderful. He is a beautiful, kind soul that opened up his amazing home to me & made me feel as though I had a home away from home. He was incredibly hospitable & always made sure I was happy & comfortable & for my 6-week stay I had my own double bedroom with incredible views of the ocean & valley below. It was truly a dream.
Robin was also incredibly knowledgable about the local area & was always happy to chat to me over a cup of tea, the history of the region right back to aboriginal times which was fascinating & really gave me a deeper & greater appreciation of the land I was on.
The whole hinterland of the Pocket & Byron Bay, to me, must be one of the most beautiful, lush areas of coastal Australia with Robins patch of land being an absolute gem that has touched my heart & I will cherish my stay there for many, many years to come.
