Then on the Sunday we met my niece (who baked the most decadent Red Velvet cupcakes for me - they were sublime!!!) at Manly for a bit of an outing. First we hit up the Markets - which seemed a bit smaller than the last time we were there :(
We had a lunch at a restaurant not too far from the beach (think big juicy Barramundi fillet with salad and chips), and then went for a walk along the promenade towards Shelly Beach where we found some humour...
Let the kids play on a cool sculpture...
And admired some people who were paddle boarding around this boat (Made me think of you Jana!).
I found a cool poster in a coffee shop window... only later did I discover it was in reference to the All Blacks trouncing the Wallabies! lol
|Long Black, Short Black, All Black.|
There was a really cool building along the waterfront where some guy parked this bike... I HAD to share it with you!!! :)
We also stopped for our first taste of Ben & Jerry's on the way back ... there were a WHOLE lot of rich flavours that were a bit to heavy for such a hot day, but I have to say the boys and I loved "Chunky Monkey" flavour!!! :)
The boys wanted to have a swim, and then we were off home! They were in the car about 10 minutes before they fell asleep. I call that a successful outing! :)
Hope you have all been getting in some good R&R time on the weekends!
