The wheels on the bus..

..go into town – Newcastle that is.
Today, as it is still school holidays, we ventured out to do something a little different and sooo exciting.
We boarded the bus at Marketown shopping centre and rode to town (free fare zone) to catch up with Daddy for a coffee (and scone and babycino) by Newcastle beach at the new Acquaview Cafe.  Following our refreshments, the girls and I (and the stroller, purse, babypack, waterbottles, jumpers, and blankie) strolled along the beach promenade.  We counted 23 ships awaiting access to the port.  We saw surfers, cyclists, workmen, and a dad playing in the sand with his children.  We had a lovely time and I was reminded to take it easy, slow down, breathe!

Back on the bus Eden was given smarties by a strange, well-meaning elderly man – oh dear.  Thank heavens she didn’t eat them so I could ‘put them away for later’ in a tissue in my purse.

We rode the bus back to Marketown and quietly made our way to the car – one hand pushing Nyssa in the stroller and the other supporting Eden on my left hip.
