We got to Port Macquarie the day before Kate's birthday so we could spend some time looking into suitable spots for her birthday pampering.

Our campsite was right on the breakwater, a really lovely spot when it stopped raining...which it didn't very much!.

Kate's key criteria for what would be a pretty lowkey 30th (we're both gonna celebrate our 31st in style next year!) was CAKE and we found a pretty good one...

Budgets put aside for the day it was restaurants all the way! Brekkie at the pancake place, lunch at a little cafe and dinner at a great Thai place - all this after Kate had been facialed and manaceured to perfection!

The highlight however was a freebie. It had stopped raining for all of 10 minutes so we figured we'd walk along the breakwater to the beach...we weren't alone though, several schools (or is it pods?) of Dolphins joined us just metres away playing in the small waves along the breakwater. It didn't stop there, as we headed back we spotted what looked like a small family group made up of mum, dad, junior and tiny baby! - so GOD DAMN CUTE! Didn't have the camera unfortunatly but totally made the day even more memorable.

Wrapped it up with a screening of the new Batman movie, very good and highly recommended...two thumbs up.

Success at last! I'm in the system. Great great pictures, I really enjoy seeing them -my compliments to the photographer/s.
Congratulations on your job Mark, hope you enjoy it.
Kate, hope you had a good birthday. It has not been ignored really, we'll do something special when you return :-)
So wonderful to see blue skies, they've been in great shortage in Edinburgh! Rain, rain, rain. We have even had flooding. Fed up with it now. Not playing any more.
We are enjoying the Festival - I was invited on stage recently to take part in a game - and live to tell the tale! :-)
Carry on blogging, and take good care of each other.
With love, Francesca and Max xxxxx
