My mother-in-law stayed with us for the weekend and yesterday we had lunch at an old haunt of mine - Watsons Bay hotel (or Wato Bay as we used to call it). Fresh prawns, beetroot and walnut salad and champagne while sitting in the sun with family. What a relaxing way to spend Sunday afternoon.
|Hello Sydney, I love you!|
After lunch we needed to stretch our legs and burn off some of the calories consumed, we walked to Camp Cove and around the South Head Coastal Walk. It is such a superb spot for a little photo snapping, sea gazing and exploring. Our kids love to explore on a bushwalk or a track. Exploring is such a good way to keep them entertained.
Camp Cove is one of my favourite Sydney harbour beaches. It's tucked away amongst some of Sydney's most beautiful houses and quaint little historic cottages (that still cost a fortune). The water is calm and clear and the views are stunning. My boy stripped off to his undies and was the only person (besides a group of scuba divers rugged up in their wetsuits) to brave the cold water.
Wisteria is in full bloom now in Sydney and soon the jacaranda trees will be blossoming also. I love all the pops of purple. I found this lovely wall of wisteria in Camp Cove - the smell was just divine.
I did a little vintage treasure hunting on the weekend also and scored a gorgeous 1920's English jug, some tiny silver coffee spoons and a fabulous cabinet that's getting the white paint treatment. Foraging for vintage finds at local markets really makes me happy. What's the best thing you've found lately?
have a lovely week, I'll be back soon with some painted furniture to share.
