338--Australia: Byron Bay
@ CherieSpotting     Jan 13 2006 - 14:43 PST
cherie writes: Byron Bay is a magical place where we walked on the beach, splashed in the water, and paid a visit to the Byron Bay Emergency Room.

Diane and I were walking along the beach when I stopped to take a photo. Suddenly a gust of wind ripped a shade-structure out of the sand and it headed straight for Diane's head. Diane was knocked over, and in extreme pain. Lifeguards and later paramedics helped take Diane to the ER. Luckily the X-rays showed that Diane's spine was unfractured.

Later we realized that there are better ways to get the attention of the Australian surf rescue team.
