I love the beach. The smells, the sounds, the general atmosphere…
I am super excited that we are heading there tomorrow for a nice long beach walk in the sun… heaven!
As much as I love the beach (or seaside as we call it back in the UK), is it odd that I am not actually that fussed with going in the water? I love to walk along the sand with my feet in the water, feeling the splash as each wave comes across my ankles. And it’s not that I can’t swim….
Maybe it’s the unknown for me that I don’t like. Sometimes you can’t see your feet, you don’t know what the next wave will be like… and don’t even get me started on sharks.
Actually come to think of it, my dislike of being in the actual water seems to make a lot of sense! Just being smart! 😉
But for today, let’s check out this weeks Friday Favourites!
Favourite… Moment – Feeling the heat from the sun
Well folks this week really has been the start of the sunshine here. The sweatshirts are being left at home, the shorts are coming out of the wardrobe pair by pair and slowly the duvet is being pushed off the bed every night. This weekend the temps are going to be in the 30’s (Celsius) and it looks like winter is finally behind us!
Favourite… Feeling – Nourished
On Saturday David and I headed over to Victoria Park in the hunt for some street art. We found a few really cool pieces but the best score of the day was finding the most amazing Vegan café, The Loving Hut. We ate lunch there and it was just the epitome of good food. I love eating tofu on occasion and this combo of GF tofu spring rolls and turmeric veggies just made my tummy smile!
Favourite… Purchase – Wool duster
Some of you may have seen me document my venture to Bunnings (the DIY store) on Instagram stories. For those who missed it, I was in the hunt for a good duster! I was tempted by the ostrich feather one but instead went for the lambs wool one and it works a treat. Honestly it makes dusting the house easy peasy. Why did it take me so long to get one!
Favourite… Food/Drink – Chocolate soft serve
So after that delicious lunch, we saw that the café did Vegan soft serve (made with almond and coconut milk). I adore soft serve and knew we had to try it. Oh. My. Goodness. There are no words to describe how good this was!
