From where I’d rather be..

So I thought it appropriate to write my first post in a while on one of my favorite places, the NSW Central Coast. I’m fortunate enough to have an amazing mother in law that has a little holiday shack in Budgewoi. No, it’s not overly glamorous, but what it lacks it glamour it makes up for in convenience. It’s a five minute drive from Lakes Beach, where they have an off leash dog exercise area so our fur daughter gets to have a play in the sand as well. Another five minutes (if that)  down the road is Norah Head where there is a cute little place we frequent while up there, The Ark Cafe. Great coffee, great food and very laid back. Rock up in your swimmers and flip flops and grab a bean bag under a tree and enjoy. What I love more than anything about this place is that the parking at beaches is free and easy to find and it’s only just over an hour drive for us from the North West of Sydney!

Happy when he has a plate of food in front of him, teenagers!

My lunch was the healthier choice: fish cakes with salad

Colourful and quirky, have a look around while waiting for your order

Grab a spot under a tree, sit inside or set up your own blanket or towel!

Fish and chips

Follow the stairs down…..

to the rock pool, it’s not always this full

look over to this view

Houses that over look the rock pool, would love to live here

Charlie approves while Dad has a paddle

The beach over from the rock pool, there’s also a boat ramp and spot to clean off fish from your fishing trip. Trailer parking is also at top of the hill


Norah Head really is a beautiful little spot, if you are ever on the coast drop in and have a lazy little morning or afternoon. I guarantee it’ll be relaxing!
