The October Long Weekend was not fantastic weather wise. It rained non-stop and sent us back into winter hibernation. Late on the Sunday afternoon, deep into our stack of DVD's, we received an invite out to dinner. Although very tempted to stay put, on hearing that dinner was at the Whalebone Wharf, a seafood restaurant I have been wanting to try for ages, we were quickly out from under the blankets and made the wet 40min drive down to Port Macquarie. We arrived before dark (it being the first day of daylight savings) and despite the clouds, took in the amazing water views over the oyster farms and boats. The deck covered in fairy lights would be a perfect place to sit on a warm summer evening.
