Another great meal from Emeralds Restaurant. This time it was lunch and they have a great lunch specials menu. As you may know, I am a big fan of seafood so I decided to try the Emeralds Seafood Basket.

The highlight of this was the amazing prawn spring roll and herb encrusted prawns that were in the seafood platter from Valentines Day. Absolutely divine! The batter was very tasty and not oily. The salad was very nice and a great complement.

As usual I couldn't get through the whole meal and ended up taking it home to enjoy later. Great value for money. I will have fun working my way through the menu at Emeralds restaurant.

Other meals which met with approval were the Scotch Fillet with prawns and a delicious Bernaise Sauce, and Chicken Parmigiana (Tender Crumbed Breast, Fried and Topped with
Fresh Tomato, Basil and Grilled Cheese)

What a feast! Tonight I had Chicken Schnitzel with mushrooms and a creamy sauce. A glass of wine accompanied the meal at $13 price tag.

The view from the window of Emeralds was stunning, overlooking Warilla Beach

What a view! Tonight I dined at Emeralds restaurant at Warilla Bowling club.

After dinner I attended the Kiama/Shellharbour Camera Club held at the Sapphire Conference room. Tonight's club meeting was a nature competition and the quality of entries were astounding! I was happy to meet up with some great local flickr people. A wonderful night!

A little bit of Spain in the seaside village of Shellharbour, an hour south of Sydney and one of New South Wales' best kept secrets. La Marina spanish restaurant was the venue for Stan's 51st birthday and Australia Day celebrations.

I love the decore of La Marina. It is like you have been transported to Spain. The warmth of the rich red t ones and colourful decorations. A joy to visit and while away an hour or two with good food, conversation and share the experience with friends and/or family.
