Mini Break

We took a mini vacation over the weekend - so last minute (planned on Friday afternoon) and so much fun.  Especially for Dear Husband as it was a trip down memory lane.

First priority stop - Freshwater Creek Cakes.  Aaah - the infamous "Passionfruit Sponge Cake" from years past.  I have to admit - this is a gooooood memory to have.  And now I understand my Dear Husband's obsession for it and how it is in a class of it's own.


This cake is light; it's airy; it has the right combination of sweet balanced by the creamy balanced by the most tender crumb.  It's not sugary; it's not buttery; it's not moist nor is it dry.  What it is - is perfect.  And divine.  And so, so, so delicious.


Surely it can be improved upon?  Yes - by taking a fork to it and devouring it on the pristine sands of a gorgeous beach.


Definitely one of the highlights of the weekend.


And the other highlights include...

A play on the beach even though it's too cold for a swim.



 A jump with Dad on a giant pillow.


A lighthouse.



Ice-cream.


Playgrounds with beautiful backgrounds.


And some fishing.


Oh - and some more cake!


It was a wonderful, last-minute family vacation.  When was the last time you just packed up and went?

  2. I know! Even if we have to pay premium rates, we'll make sure to include it in the plans for the next family gathering.
    And yes - waaaay to much cake. But now I know why C goes on about it and I'm going to start my Passionfruit Sponge quest again.
