Holiday in the storm
We were supposed to go up the coast for a quick holiday, but everything was booked out, so we checked into the Swiss Grand Hotel which is about 500m from our flat in Bondi. It turned out to be the best decision we could have made, because there was a huge storm and the worst hit area was the mid-north coast, where we were planning to stay. Instead we got to watch the wild surf from our local hotel room which was amazing.
I got a massage, and had to be escorted by conscierge to the roof gazebo because of the dangerous wind. It was beautiful sitting in the milk spa watching the storm and going back to my room completely blissed out. I was really lucky because the person who went in after me was evacuated mid-massage along with the staff because the wind blew tiles off the roof, and as a result the road was closed off by the police!
For local friends I can really recommend the massage and spa. Apparently they do great bargains. They said to keep an eye on the website to find out when. Oh - and the morning we left Johnny saw a whale down at the beach.
