Today, taking advantage of my week of annual leave, we took a day trip down to Bateman’s Bay for some great seafood and a chance for Jake to hit the beach.
The trip itself was excellent – little to no traffic, but we didn’t get underway until 10:15am so we arrived at the bay around 12:30pm. We met up with Toni’s mother Joan, and then went to the Innes Boat Shed on the waterfront for lunch.
After lunch, we bid farewell to Joan, ducked into the local Woolworths to pick up some milk for Jake and then drove south to Batehaven (about 5 mins drive) where Jake prowled the beach grabbing handfuls of sand and mud.
Then we spent some time at a nearby park which had excellent play equipment, before returning to the car for the return trip to Canberra, arriving at Melba around 5:30pm.
Dinner was hosted by my folks and we ended up back home around 8:30pm and pretty wrecked.
