A chocolate fix and lunch with a view.

Last Monday we were invited to the Gold Coast for lunch with friends, Keith and Barbara, who are there on holidays from London. On the way we stopped for a coffee but changed our mind when we found this interesting cafe called "Choclicious."

We had a hot chocolate instead of coffee and it was delicious.

While waiting to be served I saw these funny signs outside the cafe.

I liked the one above best.

I thought they were relevant to share with you as Easter is almost here.

Then it was time to find our friend's apartment. It was on the 6th floor and had a great view of the ocean and it was relaxing listening to the waves rolling in.

What can I see happening on the beach.......
Aha! Preparations for a beach wedding, sadly for them there was a very strong breeze... strong that this kite surfer was flying across the water at a great speed.

Just a little way along from the wedding was a class of school children having a surfing lesson.

Another class was having a board riding lesson.

We were served a nice lunch with a fabulous view.


  1. Sounds like a the type of cafe I would like as I love chocolate like any normal person.

    I love hot chocolate as I don't drink coffee and during the winter months I drink a lot of hot chocolate.

  2. What a fun day! Love all the chocolate signs- and I believe every one of them :-)

    The view that your friend has is wonderful - enjoy your day and the rest of the week!

  3. I was sent your link from Lucy...she knows I am obsessed with chocolate and told me I needed to visit! I LOVE the quotes! They are so perfect! Do you mind if I steal them for my blog???? Love it!!! The beach pix are sure beautiful! I would love to visit Australia someday!!!
