Summer Days

Part of our loot

Chelsea Beach on a windy day.

The weather's been kind to us the last week or so. Absolutely lovely sunny T shirt and shorts days.

So Boy and I ran off to Chelsea Beach on Monday where we gorged ourselves on some really excellent fish, chips and other crispy beautifully battered seafood at Omega Three (love that name; it's a name AND an advertisement, how good is that!). Then upon finding out that the sea was really too cold to swim in, spent the remaining time alternately running around the surf and lying on the sand chasing fat cunning gulls away from our fish and chip packet.

Tuesday found us driving around the Mornington Peninsula wine and farming region in search of a lovely Riesling that I bought 2 years ago from a vineyard whose name I was too tipsy to remember after 4 successive wine tastings. Found it at Montalto Vineyard and Olive Grove and we stayed to have lunch at the cafe.

No one sings it better than Michael Buble.

I'll be back in Singapore on Thursday 10 Jan 08 but flying off to Medan via Malaysia on the 17th.

See y'all in a bit.
