Taste of Summer @ the Mount

Had gorgeous weather this weekend . . . made the most of it down by the beach, Saturday with a walk around the Mount, then returned again on Sunday for a little more sunshine and brunch out!

Mount Manganui

We ate at Blue Restaurant. It was really busy and we missed out on a spot in the sun but still managed to find a nice and sheltered spot just outside. Did notice that a number of clever people had anticipated the rush due to the good weather and had booked ahead to reserve tables out on the deck.

I dined on a Salmon Eggs Benedict, which was absolutely delicious. Served on focaccia bread and a bed of spinach. Very generous serving as well. The coffee was perfect. Blue has table service, which is unusual amongst the oceanside cafes at the Mount and the wait staff were attentive without making us feel like we were being hurried. 

Then we wandered across the road to enjoy the view:

Ah, just lovely!
