Easter Long Weekend

In Australia Easter public holiday includes Good Friday and Easter Monday, which makes a 4 day weekend. It's also a very popular time to go on vacation as the schools are on term break. For us, it was a time to relax and enjoy the holiday destination we live in.

Good Friday was also my birthday this year. Dave made an omelet for my breakfast. Zoe made and decorated a layer cake. We went to the beach for a swim. It was a lovely day.

On Saturday we went to Somersby falls. A destination we always enjoy visiting.

On Easter Monday we went to Mt. Penang Gardens, a place we've never visited. The gardens were gorgeous. We especially enjoyed the water feature, the bamboo varieties, and the bottle trees. Stone sculptures from an art competition had found a home in the Gardens.

At the end of our garden tour, Dave suggested we have lunch at the WaterFall Cafe which overlooks the water garden of Mt. Penang. It was a beautiful location, and delicious food.
