Weekend Getaway at the Bay - the little lioness

Weekend Getaway at the Bay

oct2012 310

A weekend getaway, just up to Port Stephens for a couple of nights. Sun and sand, fish and chips, rest and relaxation. Much needed, and well overdue. Over too quickly. Here are some snaps

Bub's Seafood, Nelson Bay

(before I got sunburnt)

Now, Bub’s Seafood claims to have the best fish and chips in NSW for like a million years running. I so don’t think so. Give me the Esplanade Takeaway at Warners Bay any day. This fish was boring and the chips also…. boring!

(grey and drizzly Friday evening)

Colonial Ridge Resort, Salamander Bay

We stayed at Colonial Ridge Resort (I believe the fact that there was a tennis court made it a resort?). Huge 2 bedroom cabin thing, with equipped kitchen, decent bathroom, and tiny tv.

Bed was comfortable enough, though on the hard sign for little princess and the pea here….

No oven, but stove, microwave, kettle and all the pots, pans and so on!

Kids’ room. I slept one night in one of these. And stole the pillows for the night.

Nice to have a laundry, and the hot water in the shower was AWESOME. Could have done with a little soap rest thingo.

Salamander Beach

Lost Rish for a few hours, after a noice sleepin on Saturday. Spent the morning wandering around Salamander Bay, getting sunburnt :/

The water is so clean here.

Lunch was, of course, needed at some point, and when Rish got back we headed into Nelson Bay to Flipped for some burgers.

And I did too! (note the gluten free breadage). Mine was Moroccan. And better :p

Sanook Thai Salamander Bay takeaway

Dinner in front of Toy Story 3, Thai from Sanook, Salamander Bay. All of the food was wonderful. Great Pad Thai, chicken in the smokey satay was excellent, and the fish cakes were yum!

(did anyone else find Toy Story 3 a little scary???? We followed that up with Die Another Day. Hilariously terrible.)

Scones for Rish

And awesome date and banana loaf for me. I asked, and it seems the bakery at Anna Bay makes a great range of gluten free loaves.

(the one with aroma. for reals.)

Shoal Bay

Then for a walk (in terrible shoes) up Mount Hackey (thus named during a trip in uni when we lost a Hackysack over the cliff) at Shoal Bay
