I awoke to brilliant sunshine for my 58th birthday. Bill got me out of bed by telling me he had just seen a whale – blowing a water spout, and flipping its tail. It had gone by the time I got up, and we didn’t see it again.
There was a lovely card waiting for me on the coffee table, with a beautiful heart magnet in it.
I had slept reasonably well – my arm was the best it had been for a long time.
We had breakfast, then went for a drive to Tura Beach, where we looked at the new Safeway supermarket – really big. Had lunch at a little bakery in the next group of shops – I had a salad roll, Bill had a pastie. Then went for a drive to Tathra.
We went to pick up the photos we’d left for processing. I had a look in the old-fashioned lolly shop and bought some Milko Chews – an old favourite from my childhood. Wrapping was different, and the lollies themselves were fatter and shorter than I remembered. Tasted much the same though. They also had umbrellas (but only red ones) and choo choo bars (see my post in Reflections).
Back to the cabin for a bit of a rest before we went out to dinner.
Pier One was wonderful. I enjoyed every mouthful of my Crispy Skin Atlantic Salmon on a rosti, with beetroot relish. Bill enjoyed his seafood salad with crab, kingfish, scallops. We even had a sweet. Bill had Vanilla Pod Crème Brûlée and I had Pear and Walnut Strudel with Brandy Englase. Yummy!!!
