{Avoca Beach}

These are just a few random photos that I took on the weekend ;o)

Well James and I had the best few days away with our good friends Denis, Kristy, Dannielle and Jono. We left Nyngan about 530pm on Thurs night and headed for Dunedoo, we stopped in Dubbo for dinner and had a lovely meal at Sticks and Stones a pizza place. It was really really yummy! Denis and I really looked the part in our boardies and thongs, while Salt and Kristy were at least dressed half decent :o(

We got to Dunedoo about 10.30 and Salt and I realised that owing a very comfy KING size bed is not a good thing when you get to a motel and have to share a very SMALL HARD DOUBLE bed.... not the best night sleep I have had, but it was all made better by a beautifully cooked breakfast at the bakery next door.

We headed on our way only to have to stop as a truck had slid off the road and gone thru a fence.... I am sure he was ok, pity about the truck and the boats he was carrying!

Kristy and I watched Jessica most of the way to Avoca, which was good it made the 4hr trip go a bit quicker (thanks Kristin) I loved the book and the movie which is very rare when you have read the book first.

The boys got lost numerous times taking us on the windiest road making all of us sick except Denis as he drove and thought it quite funny. I don't know why but men just hate following the signs to somewhere they have to take what they think is the shortcut on the map but realistically the highway would be quicker..... they did the same thing on the way home! so we got to see alot of different country anyway.

We arrived at Avoca just on 2pm which was great as that was the check in time and we headed down to Avoca and had fish and chip and then Salt and Denis dropped us off at Pure Balance Dannielle was running a bit late and arrived at about 4.30 I think, it was absolute heaven we received the best foot & back massages and a lovely facial it was awesome. That night we all enjoyed Thai, how yummy is that I loved it I will be definitely having it again. The next day the boys went fishing at the crack of dawn apparently Salty was up at 4am all excited... nearly as bad as me waking up at 6am and not being able to go back to sleep.

I woke the girls up at about 7am saying I was hungry but was greeted with what time is it! and some lovely words telling me they wern't getting up it was way to early go back to bed!! I did eventually. We had breaky and headed into Terrigal for some shopping, they have some great shops and I brought a pair of very expensive swimmers that make you look like you lost 10pounds in 10 seconds. All I can say is they would want to last me at least a couple of years.

That night we went to the Cowrie for dinner, it wasn't the best seafood platter Salt and I have ever had but the desert plate that Kristy and I shared was to die for, it was soooooo yummy!

Sunday morning we got up and headed back into Terrigal for breaky and had to wait for about an hour and a half for our breakfast I was getting quite cranky as I just wanted to head home and see the girls, Mia came running out very excited to see me when we got home.... Brie just stood there staring at me until I picked her up and then she just snuggled in for ages, I am so lucky to have Salts mum who loves looking after them. Thanks Kay :o)

Well my new camera is taking a bit of getting used too I am going to have to dress the girls up and go and have a bit of a practice.

Well if your still reading you have done well!

Have a great nights sleep everyone cause that is where you should be by this time of the night unless your name is Leah in the Kia LMAO....

Wow, what a great few days away! I'm so jealous!

Kelley said...

Sounds like you all had the best time on your little trip. I will have to invest in a pair of those swimmers I think LOL..

Sonia said...

Sounds like a great trip Amie, Glad you had such a fab time!!!

Leah-in-the-Kia said...

RUDE! and yes I was still up , glad you had a nice time in America!directly!

Kyla said...

Glad you had a great time in our little slice of heaven. You didn't go through Broke & Wollombi, did you? Steve used to think that was the quickest way - but it's not. Yuppyville (aka Terrigal), is best avoided like the plague on Sunday mornings. All those Sydney day trippers!! There is a little place in Terrigal near the Crowne Plaza that has THE best seafood platters, I agree with you about the Cowrie...dessert to die for, but the rest is pretty ordinary - same goes for The Boathouse on Brisbane Water Dr...same owners.

Amie it looks like you all had a ball - which is just the way it should be.

Don't know if I could watch Jessica....I read the book and even though I didn't enjoy it, I had to finish it lol. I just wanted something to go right for the poor girl!!
