"Too late she cried....!!!"

I went down to the Marina (Sorrento Quay) yesterday evening to see if I could catch a quick shot of a glorious sunset, there was one but unfortunately it didn't wait for me, slipping down below the skyline just as I arrived, I misjudged the time by about 20 minutes. Not to be put off I walked over the bridge to the cafe side of the harbour to see what the locals were up to on this chilly evening.  Well as expected the ice cream parlour was empty apart from the owners looking a bit disgruntled, definitely not a night for ice cream (11 degrees!!).  Meanwhile round the corner........  San Churro (san churro) was humming!!  I think it's a world wide franchise so I'm betting you all will have tasted for yourself the many chocolate delights within a San Churro, the hot chocolate drink, perfect for a chilly night, is excellent!  I stopped in and picked up three different types of chocolate cake to take home, thus ensuring my status as 'best mum' for at least one more night!!

  8. Can't believe you don't have one in either Adelaide or Sydney, it's usually Perth that's behind with new ideas!

    You would love them Ann, just like long donuts that you dip in hot chocolate, so very yummy!!

    Chocolate is always a good way to pass the time Robert.

    You are not wrong Jack, makes me shiver just thinking about it!!

  9. What we wouldn't do for 11 degrees. Should be 37 here today, but then we are in opposite hemispheres. The only time we've been to Australia was in August ant it was pleasant all around.
