night out with the girls

The time had come for some Manly girl action….

Kylie, Sarah, Michelle and I got together for some warm up drinks chez moi, then Hugos for lychee martinis, pizza and polenta chips, rose (makes me crazy…), espresso martinis and more rose.

A completely awesome night.

new latin dancing night in Manly

Fresh from our Salsa class the night before Kate and I went along to Manly’s newest Latin dancing night, Beaches Latin at the Shore Club.

There were a lot of people there from the Buena Vista Dance Academy so that was fun too.
I think the night is monthly – so we can all keep going to Establishment in between! – you should come along to the next one….

Even though it was a completely rubbish decision of Fernando’s to move back to Chile, it did mean that we had an excuse for a mid week get together.
There was gluten free pizza, a truck load of wine and very pooly made leaf tea.
There was salsa, merengue and free styling.
There was yoga, bar bottle tricks and babushka dolls.

saturday paddle

There was so little surf today I was almost embarrassed for poor Manly beach. I mean, it was gorgeous. But nada.
Some persuasive and logistical texts later and I had Jess & Fernando in tow to go paddling on the harbour. Naturally given that there was no surf or swell on the east side, the harbour, west side was blustery and choppy. Not ideal paddling conditions. Especially if you were hoping for a fun, easy, chatty time out. So much for that.
