Eden Escape Part 2

Day Three dawned ripe for discovery so we drove around to the other side of Twofold Bay to the National Park to explore the Davidson Whaling Station.

Such a stunning, secluded spot with a perfectly preserved piece of history in the old Whalers Cottage. The bird life was insane...such a beautiful cacophany eminating from the bush.




We stopped for lunch at the Seahorse Inn which does cracking good eats. Relaxing in the sun watching the kids run around on the lawn while the parents enjoyed an afternoon tipple...perfect!


Some of us may have snuck in an afternoon snooze when we got back. Hubby took the boys down to the beach later in the afternoon so I made the most of the quiet and read an Agatha Christie murder mystery.


Jack could barely keep his eyes open when the boys returned sandy and soaked from the beach. It was a quiet night in with dinner & a kids movie quickly followed by an early bedtime.


We headed home on Day Four which was just as well, we woke up to wild and windy weather. We stopped at one of the lookouts going over Brown Mountain and took a little stroll to stretch our legs.



Such a lovely long weekend.

And equally lovely to come home to our garden looking like this!



The apple, pear and cherry trees, the bluebells, hellebores, poppies and our flashy fucsia Judas trees all in bloom.


Happy Hols everyone xx


Eden Escape Part 1

We took advantage of the long weekend during the middle of school hols and headed down to our friends' beach house in Eden. The weather was kind, the food moreish and the view...




We arrived late in the afternoon on Day One and hit up the Fisherman's Club for dinner. The boys played in the Kids Club (woot!) while we enjoyed a drink in peace. We feasted on seafood then toddled back to the beach house with full bellies and sleepy heads.




Day Two the boys played from sun up to sun set and collapsed at the end of the day in that happy, holiday tired kinda way. We hit the beach and the playground in the morning, stuffed ourselves silly with more seafood for lunch at the wharf then filled the afternoon with more beach play and woodfired pizzas in the park for dinner.
