Holiday snaps

26 February 2018

It's a cold and wet Monday here in Canberra. So I thought I'd share some photos from our mid summer holiday on the south coast. Late last month we drove to Mollymook and spent just short of a week going to the beach, exploring the nearby towns and chilling out. It was such a relaxing and happy trip. Here are a few highlights :)

I was a tiny bit nervous about taking a surfing lesson but I really loved it! The lessons were my Christmas gift to Tony, and we took a class together at Mollymook beach. I've never been super confident in the surf but going out with an instructor on our second day really helped me feel braver in the ocean and have more fun. Contacts also helped :)

Tony had a private class on our last day, so I watched with a cinnamon scroll and coffee before going for a one last swim ahead of the drive home.

We stayed in this new Airbnb, which came with freshly picked cherry tomatoes, homemade marmalade and a welcome plate of chocolates and grapes. It was such a cosy base, especially on the  rainy days where we lay around watching movies, cooking and playing chess. One day I'd love to stay in this retro house with friends.

One of our favourite things about being based in Mollymook was being close to Ulladulla and Milton. We had a handy list of must-visit places from our friends Sarah and Mark. They pointed us in the direction of Maverick's for coffee, and we were there most days.

On our final night, we treated ourselves to dinner at St Isadore in Milton. This pork katsu cutlet was delicious! There was a summer crumble for dessert, which I'd love to replicate at home before stone fruit season is over.

We're hoping to plan a few trips this year and have a tiny cabin stay booked for May. For now, I have a few extra freckles to remind me of this year's summer holiday :)

P.S Does anyone else make a to do list on holidays?? I make a similar one for weekends.
