The Rocks

Happy Monday!

Did you have a nice weekend?

I had a lovely weekend, 

it was my Wonderful husband's birthday and I treated him to a night in the city

We stayed at the Amora Hotel

Had dinner at the Bavarian Beer Cafe

Had dessert at Max Brenner's, best chocolate ever!!!

Had brunch the next day at Rossini's in Circular Quay

Wandered around the Markets at the Rocks 

Took the big bulky camera all the way to Sydney 

and home again without ever taking it out of the car

Had to take photos of the markets on my mobile phone so I had something to show you

This was my first time at the Rock's markets and I was surprised at how big they are

Almost bought one of these wall plaques but I couldn't decide on a favourite  : (

The weather was gorgeous

it was a lovely break!


I have a special treat for you later this week

For the first time ever at McCarthy Designs 

There will be a special post by a guest blogger.

Have a great week!

  2. Hiya Nellie,
    It sounds like you had a lovely weekend! Your pictures brought back fond memories for me...we took our girls for a holiday to Sydney last year, it was their first time on a plane and their first holiday outside Queensland, so it was a completely new experience for them and we loved every minute of it :)
