Graeme Page, Sydney
I’ve always had a soft spot for Byron, but it’s just got a lot softer. My iPad went missing last week (in Sydney, by the way). After three days of searching, I’d written it off. Now, lo and behold, a package arrives for me here in Sydney this morning, with my errant iPad sitting snugly in bubble wrap. There’s no note, there’s no indication of the sender at all – apart that is from ‘Byron Bay’ written in the sender space, and a Byron Bay PO postmark (for $9.55, no less).
I don’t know how it got to Byron from Sydney, and I don’t know who wrapped it up and sent it home to me. Maybe it wanted a holiday? But whoever you are, thank you. It was a very decent thing to do, and is much appreciated. In the absence of anyone to reward, I’ve donated $50 on your behalf to UNICEF. But if you do read this up in Byron, well done. You have put a smile on my face.
