I had a lovely week away as you can see, and came back feeling like my old self...just needed to see the kids .

Melissa and Chris took me out to dinner at Nicks on Bondi Beach and we had some lovely Prawns, oysters, mussels etc...yummo.

Being a country girl seafood is still a sort of novelty for me and I was about 17 before I even saw a prawn or oyster... The fish we got on Friday night inland
had to be shark.





Here is the evidence....ha







Then in Melbourne it was Alison's birthday so Andrew and I took her out for Dinner alongside of Port Phillip Bay...





















After my vegetarian visitor I was craving red meat and lots of it and here I am saying "please sir may i have some more."

Had to giggle at your carnivore statement ... I can SOOO relate!!! I can eat a lot of veggies and pastas and such, but sooner or later I gots to have me some meat!! (^_^)

Really happy to hear you had a good visit! Please don't worry 'bout me -- though you are a good and kind and loving soul to do so. I am doing OK - thanks in no small part to the goodness of folks like you!
