We were intending to take a drive to the Adelaide hills on Sunday but got busy and of course the day started to get away from us so instead we decided to take a wander at Brighton Beach. We go there quite a bit as the Mister and I are drawn to the relaxed café scene that our fab beachside suburbs offer. This time I took my camera and I gotta tell you when you see a place you visit regularly through a lens you truly see it differently. Brighton Beach is fun, eclectic, relaxed and has soul.
We wandered down the café strip on jetty Rd where fur babies, human babies and hungry peeps hang out.
Popped into Copenhagen which was heaving with sugar high peeps so I took a snap of the self serve sprinkles dispenser before we hightailed it outa there to look elsewhere. Who doesn’t love sprinkles right?!
We made our way to the jetty where we used to take the kids to watch New years Eve fireworks, we’ve even done some fishing off the jetty but not had much luck. The Arch Of Remembrance makes me think of my Dad every time I see it. He passed away 18 years ago and was in the army for over 40 years, uhuh I grew up an Army brat who went to plenty of Dawn Service ceremonies. My Dad joined the British army at 13, served 22 years then moved to Australia and served another 20…he was gentle and guarded and distant, but now as an adult I understand why. War can bloody mess people up.
How cool is this street art right near the jetty?! Someone decided they needed goggles, love it!
Whenever I see a Norfolk pine it takes me back to summers spent at Burleigh Heads…a beach isn’t complete without them.
…or a palm tree and a hotel.
Thanks to my Mister for carrying my camera bag…he’s handy like that and just quietly quite a spunk!
More street art…a squid, very cool huh!
I really want this basket! It’s from Aqua Living a great place to pick up gifts, jewellery, bags and clothes.
We ended up having coffee and cake at ‘The Edge Deli’…it’s a fave place because the food is excellent and scrummy and we love the retro vintage styling.
On the way home we visited the littlest nephews for giggle n fun. A perfect end to a Sunday.
How was your Sunday? Do you have a favourite café in your area?
Til next time,
