Kicked off Sunday with a very, erm, healthy
No idea what I’m doing…
Super grumpy mid-action shot
Us in front of these yellow flowers that were growing everywhere!!
I had to crop this pic of me, as Chris aimed it right up my skirt! Arghhhhh
Oodles of cupcakes
Double Chocolate Cupcake with Chocolate Icing and Chocolate M&Ms
Cute local arts&crafts markets nearby
Mmm… hot mocha..
It was then off to do some bushwalking! We unfortunately would’ve loved to have bushwalked more, but we didn’t have enough time since the holiday wasn’t very long 🙁 The good thing was that the weather was really lovely though, really hot and sunny and no rain! Hooray! It also meant that we were sweating like pigs, especially on the way back when we had to climb back up the massive mountain *whew*. Loads of fun though, and gave us some much-needed exercise 😉
Oh look I found a sexy man
Cute ‘lil white flowers
It took a LOT for me to stand here for this pic, ‘cos I’m afraid of heights!
It was soooo fun trekking through the bush
I love this pic 🙂
Apparently, crazy me also bushwalks with a Balenciaga bag 😉
The place was absolutely beautiful

Video of it all
Pooped and sweaty, we adjourned to Conservation Hut for a light lunch. Situated right on the cliff-top, it offers panoramic views and we were lucky to get the best table in the house – a little corner one dangling over the edge 😛 The food was blimming’ delicious, which was quite unexpected since we thought it’d be just some cheap dodgy cafe. Not so! The Roast Tomato Soup with Toasted Cumin and drizzled with Coriander Yoghurt was rich and substantial, with the punchiest flavour and went brilliantly with the French bread dipped into it. The Smoked Trout Salad with Warmed Potatoes, Pickled Cucumber, Cress and Horseradish was quite surprising as there was more trout than salad 😛 Very tasty though and went brilliantly with their terrific Shoestring Fries with Aioli. OMG!!! One of the nicest fries we’ve had. I don’t know what they did to them, but they’ve obviously hit the jackpot with this one 😉

Outdoor dining doesn’t get much better than this!
Headed home after lunch to just veg around and watched lots of Desperate Housewives and House episodes… before having a (very depressing) dinner of cereal because all the nearby restaurants were shut by the time I got hungry at 9pm! Blah!! They need to pass a law in Australia that has restaurants open 24/7, or at least ’til midnight! It’s ridiculous how they all close so early.. same goes with all the shops, grrr. Anyway, at least we had a nice afternoon/evening of just lazing around, since that’s what holidays are all about!
