harbourside





Yesterday my girl Sophie and I enjoyed a weekday off together. Days like this are few and far between these days with my kids usually out and about busy doing their own thing. 
We headed to beautiful Watson's Bay on Sydney Harbour where you can take your pick of outdoor places to eat seafood with an amazing view, have a swim or catch a ferry to the city. A popular tourist destination which is very crowded on weekends. 
This is the pub with a renovated outdoor area. We love how it's been decorated in a cute nautical style, a bit like The Fish Shop &  Bird & Bear Boathouse. It suits the character of Watson's Bay which was once a sleepy fishing village.




Lots of inspiring ideas .. love the large pebbles, the wine barrel planters & these nautical bouys! I'm definitely adding these to the list of things I want Steve to make.











We liked how the seagull on the lamp post was eyeing off everyone's fish and chips. Probably a well fed permanent resident of the area.
Too many photos for one post.. to be continued next week.




..and after all that talk about fish and chips, the queue began to grow and the day was getting hotter. Fate led us to a cafe in Bondi called Porch & Parlour we'd both been wanting to try, where we shared this yummy all day breakfast for 2.
