I experienced a day out recently with my also-expecting cousin that was so good it should be bottled (or at least documented on my blog). The next sunny day Sydney gets, I will very happily make the one you see here a groundhog day.
How have I never been to this paradise? Pictured above is Narrabeen Aquatic Reserve. No over the top descriptive words needed - just a 50m timber boardwalk and a gigantic sea pool. My kind of playground...and I think I know where you'll find me doing daily laps when I'm a grandma!
We floated and sunned our bumps. I don't often post photos of myself on the blog - but above is a very happy leopard-printed-big-belly-me at 32 weeks.
We both laid our turkish towels down on the day. If you haven't used one yet, you should give it a go - surprisingly absorbent and they take up so much less space in the cupboard and washing machine than the bulky beach towel. I'm a convert.
We dried off and made our way to lovely Avalon to have 'better for you' Bean + Sweet Corn Nachos with natural yoghurt from Healthy Chef Cafe. My cousin tells me Teresa's cookbook of recipes is her cooking bible at the moment.
We strolled around the shops of Avalon - spending extra time at the gorgeous Mark Tuckey. Home.
We finished our day trip with a visit to La Banette Patisserie. The baby and I highly recommend the Chocolate Éclair.
