FREEDOM: Eggs Benny at the Beach

Today, my husband and I took a good friend to a Breakfast "celebration". My friend had a Birthday a little while ago while she was visiting family in the UK.... so we agreed to have a meal together when she got back. Breakfast was her idea, and I did not argue!

This is the Deep Blue Cafe on the esplanade at Moana Beach. My third time here.

The development of the esplanade is really lovely.

This beach holds many fond childhood memories for me..... it was our preferred "family" beach where get-togethers were held (it's a metropolitan beach where vehicles can drive onto the sand - and elaborate tents and shelters are built between vehicles - especially on weekends) ..... many of my aunts, uncles (and my mother) have now passed away... but the memories of our times here are cherished. 

Inside the cafe our coffees arrived.

My friend and I have been dreaming about eggs benedict for ages.... a rare treat which goes straight to the hips!

Husband just wanted an egg, cheese and bacon (with BBQ sauce) roll.... he doesn't get turned on by Hollandaise sauce like I do!

 And it all tasted even better with a view like this.

The other reasons for our celebration today....... my friend has gone on a spending spree and bought a brand new car (medium size SUV) and yesterday she confirmed her purchase of a caravan.

Guess who is coming camping and caravanning with us??
