Merimbula

We have worked our way down to Merimbula via Central Tilba Tilba and the ABC Cheese factory retail outlet. This is an interesting little heritage listed town, plenty of old restored buildings housing all sorts of ways of making money in the new age. The cheese place was pretty good and we came away with a couple of aged cheddar, none of the fancy flavoured stuff this time. The Saturday markets were on the go when we arrived and Allthego managed to pick up some expensive Tomato sauce and 6 quail eggs. He was quite popular with Homealone for these astute purchases. But the piece de resistance was a half loaf of a rather tasty bread…nuts, fruit and I suppose wheat……it was $9 for the half loaf, Homealone keeps saying it was more. But you fry this stuff and then bathe it in honey and have it with coffee and port for desert! Not bad and it helps keep you regular.

We had to leave and head for Merimbula where we stayed out on a headland with a great view over Short Beach and the rugged coastline. We met up here with John & Lyn Aubrey our old friends from Sydney days. They have moved down here from Sydney as the retirement sea change, John is going to do a ‘bit’ of work  to keep his hand in.

We  had a great few days catching up on news and being shown around the town and surrounding areas. The food scene in Merimbula seems to be quite vibrant, with restaurants and cafes abundant. A ‘Eat Merimbula’ festival was on and we wandered around this sampling some calamari and a local wine for lunch. It was a show case for the local foodies and seemed quite successful.

We have headed off for Eden. This is a big drive as it is about 20k down the road so we got away early not wanting to be late!

  1. Just caught up on the last three posts on your blog. We’re picking up a few places to visit on our trip – especially the cheese factories! I’m still battling with Blog2Print. Got our computer expert Scott onto it yesterday and he can’t figure out why it won’t work either. I might have to call on your expertise when we all return home! Hi to Leanne and keep enjoying yourselves.
