Family Fun Day

I had great plans for a full day out for our family fun day – possibly the markets, or a museum. Unfortunately both the girls weren’t feeling well (having been struggling with the flu for a few days now) so we just decided to head out for some lunch. Our chosen destination is just 1/2 hour from home.


In particular a vegetarian cafe we’ve been meaning to visit forever. This is the first I’ve ever been to, besides the Nan Tien Temple.


Inside was lovely. A nice welcoming fire…


and a cute lamp on our table.


One of the best things is that Amy and I could chose from anything on the entire menu :-).


But of course the best thing was getting to hang out with my family :-).

Kevin wanted to share the sampler plate. Holy moly. Check out the size of it! We ate all the nachos (who knew sweet chili sauce would be so good on nachos), and about half the dips and pita chips. I bought home the rest. The salad went to the chooks and I enjoyed the rest of the pita chips for my afternoon snack.


Gerringong is one gorgeous seaside town. This is the view from the very small main street.


If the girls had been feeling better we might have gone forĀ  a walk around but instead we just drove down to the beach where I snapped a few photos. My Dad always camped here as a childĀ  and I’ve got a very special photo of my Grandpa and me taken here (he died when I was just 3 years old) so it’s a special place.

Towards to ocean….


Towards the mountains…Rain threatened all day long but never eventuated.


I think we’ll definitely have to come back in the Summer. Have lunch at the cafe, a swim at the beach and end the day with an ice-cream :-).
