29 December 2013 Queenscliff

Off to find another place for breakfast this morning. Not many places open yet. We settle on the Rolling Pin in Hesse St. Egg and bacon sandwich for Peter and raisin toast for me. Read the papers again (god we are boring) then off to the Queenscliff Market at Princess Park. It is already chokkers with people. I spy a cheap cat cage and take it back to the apartment while Peter looks around. By the time I get back he is finished looking! Plenty of jewellery stalls, too much competition here! Lots of pretty things though. Getting some ideas. Only buy some yummy muesli and peanut butter. Wander around a bit until I find Steph, Rod and Jen near the donut van. Jen likes her Christmas presents. I think her mum does too! Peter comes back to see them then they are on their way. I walk back to the apartment for lunch with Peter then he heads off home trying to beat the traffic.

Walking down to the shops to finish off where I left off when Peter came down! Still plenty of people around. It’s been a busy day with the market, Thomas the Tank day out on the Bellarine Railway, big swim in Pt Lonsdale. Glad I didn’t drive down today! Finished off checking out the shops. Nearly bought a pair of shoes but I stopped myself. Have to carry them home myself. Not a good idea! Where to go for dinner now?

The Couta Boat Restaurant on Hesse St! Had the salmon and flourless frangipane cake. Mmmm good. Caught up on a bit of reading my book. The waitress said she was jealous on me having ‘me’ time! ┬áThink I’ll ride to Portarlington tomorrow to wear off dinner!

28 December 2013 Queenscliff to Barwon Heads

Up for breakfast in Hesse St again. Can’t find the name of the place! Should take more notice. (Beaches – I looked). Muesli, fruit and yoghurt for me (no surprise there) and Peter’s usual bacon, eggs, chorizo (or there). Read the papers slowly then off to the Barwon Heads market. It really warmed up while we were having breakfast. Many jewellery stalls at the market with widely varying prices. Also found some mozzie repellent. I will try anything! They love me too much. Also got a stylish red sunhat! Peter bought some watermelon. Browsed the shops and who should I see but Mary’s daughter Michelle, and her daughter Jessica trying stuff on in a pop-up shop in the main street. With their cousin who lives near us! Walked around the rest of the shops. It was too hot so we came back to The Loft to chill out and have lunch with produce from The Farm Store in Hesse St!

Think I’ll take a swim in the ocean now. Back soon!

So much for my swim. The wind had changed and it was heaps cooler. Went for a walk along the ocean beach at the end of the street that the bowling club is in. Everyone was heading away from the beach. The sand hit your skin like little needles the wind was so strong. Saw another container ship go out and turn sharp left. Caught some seagulls splashing in the shallows. I think they were after what the tide was bringing in – whatever that was.

Off to Kelp in Pt Lonsdale for dinner. Delicious food. For entree I had crab meat on a betel leaf. For main a steak that melted in my mouth. Peter had calamari and the snapper for a main. No room for dessert. Wasn’t anything I fancied anyway.

Well that’s Saturday over!
