28.3.2017 Newtown shopping

As we are now on our way home our budget is known and we decided we could afford a day shopping in Op shops in Newtown. It helped that the day was cloudy and dull, so a beach day was pointless.

Breakfast was smaller today. We are putting on too much weight with massive brunches, and sushi snacks and lovely dinners. Obviously giving up booze would help too!!! 

We had a great day wandering around the area, mooching in shops and buying stuff! Not often we do this so it was a treat.

We went back to the hostel only for there to be a fire alarm. Someone had burnt the toast. The fire brigade turned up anyway, we went out for a glass of vino at Cittavino.

It is a bottlo and wine bar in one. The menu was huge and full of grapes we had never seen before, amazingly we only had a couple.

We then went onto Bloodwood and tasted an orange wine which was delicious, made by leaving the grape skins in contact with the wine so ensuring a rich, fruity and creamy taste.

We then ate some tapas.

Had a very unsatisfactory satay pie. The lass serving us said was only $7 and turned out to filled with one piece of bland satay flavoured potato. Wow!!!

Guy, before he realised the pie was filled with nowt.

Walked past a lampost near our hostel that we had never noticed was covered in shoes. 

Love Newtown.
