Peppermint and Birchs Bay

Heading down south with my brother and folks. First stop, Fleurtys Cafe, set in the beautiful rolling south hills at Birchs Bay.
Great food, reasonably priced food, great place for lunch.
Bracken. Wikipedia says "Evolutionarily, bracken may be considered to be one of the most successful ferns. It is also one of the oldest, with fossil records of over 55 million years old having been found. As ferns, brackens do not have seeds or fruits, but the immature fronds, known as fiddleheads, are edible. The word bracken is of Old Norse origin, related to the Swedish word bräken, meaning fern."Madam Zoe love the drive down there.
on the way back we stopped off at Peppermint Bay restaurant for drink and for baby Zoe to have a cooling swim. Lovely setting.
Driving back home, about to go into Kingston, Mount Wellington in the distance.
