I had a fantastic weekend. You know, it was one of those weekends where you get out and about and do stuff that you've wanted to do for a while, but haven't really wanted to do it by yourself.
Wandering around decommissioned Navy ships is always going to be a winner with me. I have no idea why, but I just love war ships. .. and submarines. Walking from bow to stern in the HMAS Onslow submarine was great and totally fascinating.
The Harbour Jet was another one of those experiences this weekend. I'd booked two seats for an early morning adventure. The wind was blowing strongly across the harbour so we were warned to prepare for a little spray. Don't go on one of these and expect to stay dry. It was fun though. I'd describe the experience as: lame bordering on exciting. I did enjoy it though and had many laughs.
And a weekend would not be complete without lots of fantastic food and eating it in great locations. I totally loved the company and eating breaky at "Splat". After breakfast then going climbing down the cliffs, over the boulders and through the caves along the coast at Queenscliff. I love hanging out and looking in rock pools. I also love the big rogue waves that catch you off guard and soak you to the bone. Once again, lots of laughs, a few scratches and the adventure of exploring the local coastline. I'm really loving the food and drink options at Manly Wharf. Above is lunch from the Manly Wharf Bar. The views are great and sitting enjoying a beer in the fresh sea air and sun out on the deck is a great way to spend any afternoon.
