Inside out....!


We had a bit of an 'anniversary thing' on Wednesday and after showing Bella Fonte from the outside looking in last week we decided to see what it looked like from the inside looking out. We arrived just as the sun was going down and caught some quite nice 'blue' shots, show you tomorrow. Looking out at the marina from the verandah on a warm balmy night was not so bad :) couldn't resist playing a bit, the same scene below with a bit going on! 
The food was excellent, a bit pricey, but for a 'once in a while' and that view it was worth it.. I had Tasmanian Salmon with a leek sauce on a bed of garlic mash and broccolini below, yum. Aimee had gnocchi and P chicken parmigiana, I always think that's a rather old fashioned dish but I guess it's just typically Italian....
As far as I'm concerned dessert is the best part of any meal and it's always difficult to make a choice, so we did the only sensible thing and ordered three different desserts and had a taste of each, the sticky date pud below, glistening with caramel sauce was tops for me, but the chocolate mousse and the icecream sundae weren't too shabby either. The trouble with eating all that food and not being able to exercise because of the 'bad back' issue, there's only one place for that sticky date pud to go..I think I may be sitting on it right now haha! Happy Friday, take care.....

  3. Many congratulations on the anniversary! You celebrated with a perfect night out - those beautiful blue skies and delish food. I'm salivating already, though it's a late lunch day for me:) Hoping your back just keeps getting better! (Been dealing with a wonky knee for a while and I feel that no-exercise antsiness too:)
