Cape Otway Lightstation is Australia’s oldest surviving lighthouse. It has been working continuously since 1848, protecting ships sailing through the ‘shipwreck coast’ off southern Victoria. It’s one of the most dangerous seas in the world. Hundreds of ships have been lost over the years. I haven’t been there for a few years but was really disappointed because the buildings look like they need a good paint. I’ve heard the complex of buildings have been renovated so it’s probably a good time to go back.
Some of you may recall I ate at this new restaurant in Brunswick St, Fitzroy a few months ago. Yesterday I went there again. This time Mum, Dad and I went for my Mum’s birthday.
We all chose the 6oz Mallett burger with melted boconccini, tomato, pickles and tomato relish. We all loved it. I reckon it’s the best burger I’ve ever eaten. We followed that up with dessert. Dad and I had the brownie and Mum had an apple tart. I had the brownie last time so I knew it was delicious. Mum really liked the apple tart. The apple was cooked with the skin on which gave it a nice texture and extra flavour. I had mentioned to the waitress it was Mum’s birthday so she served the apple tart with a sparkler ablaze which was really nice.
For me, daffodils light up dull, dreary winters. I was walking past a florist earlier today and saw the displays of daffodils. They had a special for three bunches so I bought them. They are now sitting cheerily on my dining table. I have a blocked nose so I can’t really smell them but they look really nice.
