Welcome to the final instalment of the Beach Times series. Here you will explore a few different spots - mostly ones I've taken you to before but which are that special that they warrant multiple visits.
The weather was too glorious, the company too lovely, & the food too yummy not to share here. So, with Jess still on board, the crew & I headed to one of my favourite spots. The magical Rainforest Café, hidden at the base of Mount Warning.
J & I, inspired by our green surroundings, tried to blend in by holding some Tree yoga poses.
My tree, you can see, blowing in the light breeze & peaking out to say hello behind J's serene & steady one.
After a blissful tea & cake break, we took a turn around the grounds, wandering down to the quiet river & taking in the rays of sunshine poking through the canopy.
Revitalised by the fresh air & cool shade, we headed back to Cabarita HQ to see J off & an early night before the morning excursion the following day . . .
. . . where we ventured to none other than Harvest Cafe in Newrybar.
The morning began as cool & overcast - perfect brunch weather in my opinion, but, then again, pretty well all weather is perfect for brunching.
After perusing the menu, we made our final decisions & came up trumps. Still no doubt that Harvest can be relied on to deliver the goods each time.
The breakfast platter
Poached eggs on baked polenta
Self explanatory poached eggs on toast with gravalax,
Post-feast, we made an obligatory trip to the neighbouring shops, both of which are beautifully laid out & brim-full with treasures. The first is the Harvest Deli, where many goodies abound. The other is the clothing boutique where the overall vibe is a lovely mix of urban chic with a wild spirit.
And I mustn't forget to make mention of the Harvest kitchen garden!
Until the next time
