We spent new years eve at a local beachside restaurant, with cocktails, bubbles and canapes, followed by a two-course meal. There was live music, fireworks, and a DJ later in the night.
The plans for tonight - so excited!
Best seat in the house! Not quite sure how we managed it, but somehow we ended up sitting right at the edge of the balcony seating area, with an unimpeded view of the water. So beautiful.
Our view of the beach and the ocean.
The headlands and lighthouse at dusk, all lit up.
Some canapes - pacific oyster with chilli ruby red grapefruit salsa, and citrus cured salmon in a wonton basket with salsa verde.
We had unlimited drinks - beer, champagne, mimosas and something delicious involving prosecco and cassis.
Fairy lights and balloons.
Confit duck salad with beetroot, fennel, watercress and goats cheese with an orange glaze dressing.
V found a beer with the same name as his surname, and was very excited. I tried a French 75 cocktail - gin, champagne and lemon juice, refreshing and tangy.
Happy New Years!
Perfect view of the fireworks.
Trying a Chinadoll cocktail - kiwifruit, lychee, mint, vodka, grand marnier and lychee liquer. Had to try this because the husband said I look like a chinadoll tonight. It was very delicious.
Mascapone nectarine tart with homemade vanilla bean icecream and blueberry coulis.
Hope everyone had a lovely night!
