On Friday I took the day off work and we headed off early to make the most of a long weekend at the beach. Thanks to an engagement present from friends we had two nights at Tulum, a great little studio apartment in easy walking distance from Balnarring Beach.
We stopped in for morning tea with Mike's grandmother on the way, then after settling into our apartment, a delicious lunch at Somers General Store.
In the afternoon we went for a walk along the beach, relaxed on the sand - I even went for a swim - and we flew kites.
There may have been some singing, 'Let's Go Fly a Kite' and dancing like a loon on my part. ;)
A beautiful sunny day without being hot, the last day of summer in fact, we had the beach virtually to ourselves. But, everyone who did pass stopped to watch and comment on the kites. They were a tad mesmerising; the sound of the wind, the colours, their dance.
For dinner we splurged at Salix Restaurant of Willow Creek Vineyard. That view was incredible. The food wasn't half bad either! ;)
Crispy skinned pork with a apple puree and spicy chilli risotto, and finishing with a honey cheesecake brulee. Yum.
A wonderful way to tick off two 30 Before Marriage goals, and still with a day and a half before we had to head home. ;)
26. Have a weekend at the beach and 1. Fly a kite.
