After our visit we decided to head to the lunch destination. A cute little nursery over on Stanley Street which has a cafe and giftshop. The Cottage Nursery. Well since the Clem 7 tunnel has been opened the original route was changed. Narelle and I took the lead with Mel following. Let me say one the first "Thank you Narelle for being the driver this time"OMG we had such a time getting there. Stanley Street East is a one way and we were heading the opposite way. First we got stuck on the Riverside Expressway and ended up doing the loop getting off at Margaret Street then back on the Expressway. Mel took over the lead. She had the Iphone with the GPS in it. Anyway during the drive we got lost a few times. Had plenty of laughs but we finally arrived at our destination about 45 minutes later. The place was beautiful and thank goodness I haven't activated my credit card or I could of spent some serious money in there.
Lunch was amazing. But we could of been anywhere having lunch. It was the company. The three of us get together every couple of months and just talk about anything. Our family, holidays, hobbies,work everything you can think of.
Not having my camera there I would of loved to have taken loads of photos but had the mobile phone to use. The menu was beautiful. I had the Slow cooked Pork Belly with Lime and Cumquat butter sauce and Seared Scallops. Yummy and for dessert we all picked the same thing. Creme Brulee with Crossiant filled with Rose Water jelly. We were in heaven.
The lunch went to quick and eventually it was time to go. One more get to gether before Christmas. The next one is at a Day Spa. Our treat to ourselves.
Thanks Narelle and Mel for a fabulous Saturday.
