Sometimes it isn't exactly fun to be walking about in the rain.  So while we decided where to go for dinner, a drink and chocolates are always a good combination!   We ended up at vero chocolates which is nice place at Fenwick Pier.  Walking in I was pleasantly surprised by the place - it had a nice view across the harbour, even though there was a construction site right next door. 

We were explained the showcase of different chocolates and after making our selection, they came out in a big chocolate basket.  That's right it's made of chocolate.

Apparently this structure only lasts a few days and one patron actually ate one of them thinking it was part of the chocolate experience!

I am keen to go back when the weather is better and try some of the different cakes on display!

Music by the bridge

Decided to tag along and do something rather different - I went along to a free music session whereby bands come and play for passers by.  The equipment is set up well with lights, stages and schedules of performances as well.  Most were playing their own songs so that was quite unique. Unfortunately, this time around it was raining so some of the band members were getting wet and the audiences were huddled around where there was some form of shelter.  All in all, I would go again under different weather conditions.

I really liked the individualism of the guitar:

Wow - another few months have flown by and who would have thought that so much would have happened.  Floods in northern Australia, overthrown governments, earthquakes and tsunamis, not to mention nuclear reactor issues. My thoughts are with all those who are affected by these tragic events.
On a personal front, my life has seen substantial change, so it is fitting that I restart this blog with a slightly new direction - something I had been meaning to do.
