24. Euro Patisserie and Cafe

Today I met one of my BNI friends for a short business meeting and simply could not resist ordering from the amazing selection of quality pastries on offer.  This cafe never disappoints.  These divine taste sensations are made from scratch using the freshest ingredients and traditional baking methods. 

Such a convenient location at 68 Orchardtown Road, New Lambton and with plenty of parking out front or across the street why not treat yourself to breakfast or lunch.

23. Twilight Dinner Cruise

Well my videoing techniques need improving but what a fabulous way to finish off a working week!  A dinner cruise on Port Stephens accompanied by my daughter and dolphins!

We booked Moonshadow Cruises for their Twilight Dinner Cruise.  It was the perfect way to take in the beautiful scenery, tell each other our latest news, listen to some live entertainment on board and dig into a modern Australian buffet.   There was plenty of fresh seafood, tasty meats, a variety of salads, some vegetarian options and a large selection of desserts including my favourite, Pavlova.

But before all this, we were blessed with a pod of dolphins who surfed the bow of the boat as we polished off our appetisers and watched a typically sensational Australian sunset over the water.

We opted for the cruise leaving from Nelson Bay marina which is just an hour north of home but Moonshadow Cruises also sail around Newcastle Harbour and have a vast variety of cruises to choose from.  

Check them out and book your own cruise!
