(Tracey) - Hmmmmm - I was hoping for a bright sunny day to show off the best of the garden city but it's not to be. Not cold, but a bit dull and drizzly and sitting at about 16C.
We both slept quite well, mine was drug assisted. Went to the Arts Centre with Mum and Dad and had a look around the stalls - tried some Manuka honey face cream and managed to fend off an over zealous stall owner who was certain Jason's skin couldn't do without it. There was even a Bratwurst stall there but we were saving ourselves for Sushi! Went for a quick walk around the Botanic gardens and then to the mall for some shoe shopping and lunch.
Came back home and watched a bit of cricket. Then out for a drive to Sumner Beach for a little rock climb and walk along the chilly beach.
A bit rusty with the driving but we survived after a hoppy start..... Went to Manchester Street, to an Irish pub for a beer and then to the Lonestar Cafe >>
a really popular bar and restaurant for a huge dinner around 11pm. Jason had a nice steak, "Dixie chicken" for me which I have been craving for ages - found out later they serve 1/2 portions which would have been plenty.... Was a nice day..
