After saying goodbye to Vik, we began our drive into Hofn. On the way we were once again distracted by all the constantly changing scenery and of course the glaciers, it started out as a sunny day that was almost warm (but as you can probably guess quickly turned later on in the day which we sort of expected being it is Iceland and all!).
We stayed at Mitch’s mum’s house, as usual it was full of laughter and coconut oil (inside joke). The house is right across the beach so Mitch and I walked across the road and I photographed him. I’ve been trying to get into people photography, the challenge has been to find models. I’ve been Mitch’s quite a few times so he agreed to be my model. The next night we were about to go to dinner for my birthday when we saw a little light in the sky, so we rushed out with our cameras. What came of it was a beautiful pink and dreamy glow in the sky.
After moving out we headed to Berry where Mitch’s dad lives. It is a lovely farm with a dog, cat, five(?) horses and chickens. Craig also grows his own vegetables and had been promising us avocados since 2014, but he says this is part of a four year plan. Yesterday morning we headed to Hyams Beach, Jervis Bay to take the drone out for a little spin.
Today I met my friend Nicole for brunch at Mecca in Alexandria. We were halfway through talking and gossiping when I realized I forgot to take my battery for my camera… I had planned to take some pictures of Nicole (as I want to try my hand at people photography). I had to use my iPhone instead which wasn’t too bad but didn’t have the features that I wanted. Anyway the pictures turned out pretty good! Afterwards we stumbled into a really cool and creepy (two words you never thought could be in the same sentence right?) antique store and browsed around.
We woke early in the morning and headed to Spice Alley, where we went last week for Mitch to take photos of me. The morning light was soft and golden which was perfect for pictures. After we went to Concrete Jungle cafe, a modern minimal/industrial designed space for food and coffee. I had a greens, poached egg and wagyu bresaola and Mitch had ricotta hot cakes.
Tonight Mitch, his dad Craig and I went to Fratelli Fresh, a restaurant in Sydney’s Westfield Pitt mall. The classic bar style interior was impressive, the food delicious and the atmosphere warm and intimate. I had a lovely carbonara and Mitch and Craig had pizza, we also ordered some arancini and bruschetta.
