Steele's Island Holiday

I've just come back from a holiday at Steele's Island, Dodges Ferry with family and friends, it ended up being one long food and drink bonanza! Big V and I needed to sleep nearly the whole day when we got back! 


 

Made some new friends; Leanne and Phil. Man, those guys make some pretty mean cocktails! Appletinis in the afternoon, followed by strawberry daiquiris, mojitos, bloody mary's plus other nameless creations. Not that we drank all the time by any means but it was nice to indulge in some very holiday style drinky-poos :)



 Me fishing (obviously!)

The Boys paying Harry highpants :D


The two Phils

The weather was so good we basically spent the days on the beach either fishing, swimming or just paddling up and down the shoreline. Little G LOVED the water, had absolutely no problem with the texture of sand or waves lapping up against her. She's a little beach babe for sure :)




Everyone pitched in for dinners and so we eat like Kings.  The first night was settling in night so we had just a lot of BBQ goodies. The second night Gonzo, being the the ├╝ber fisherman, supplied us with many a cray, abalone, flat head and albacore, so a massive seafood extravaganza. Dee-lish-i-ous! The next night was roast night with chicken, lamb, veal and a glazed ham. Then finally Kirky made us a ragout with a leg of lamb and Paris mash plus more albacore and flatty... Mmmmmmm!

I love holidays like this, when everybody is chilled and relaxed and time and days mean nothing. We just cruise along at a nice slow ambling pace, taking it all in at our leisure. 

I can't wait to go again next year :)
