Power to Cara Robinson as the Hat Fitz on New Years Eve

Cara says "If The Hat Fitz"...

Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson at Lizotte’s on the Central Coast

Sometimes the most unexpected performances provide the most lasting memories.

With a last minute trip to the Central Coast it was most fortunate that we were able to book the last table for the New Years Eve performance by Hat Fitz and Cara Robinson.

On entering Lizotte’s Restaurant at Kincumber, you immediately feel warm and welcome. The place is very nostalgic, decorated with memorabilia from the many local and international artists that have performed at this cosy Theatre Restaurant.

Although a full house for New Years Eve, the staff were friendly and the service extremely efficient. Dinner was served in a timely manner and was a true delight and the best was yet to come, Sticky Date Pudding to die for, the best ever!

Then it was time for the show. I was very open to the evenings performance as I had no idea what to expect as I am not normally a Blues fan, however, these guys were fantastic, great soulful music and true entertainers.

Cara is the show all on her own, she is mesmerising and although seated at a drum kit plays an array of instruments from the rough and rugged washboard, strapped over her should, to a dainty flute!

Take a look below, Cara is a true talent!

The guys had everyone up on their feet and clapping their hands and stomping their feet, playing right through until midnight when the entire restaurant celebrated the count down to New Year.

What an uplifting way to welcome in the New Year.

Not something I would normally have on my radar as an evening of choice but I must say I am a convert to the Blues Music scene and in particular the wonderfully entertaining Cara Robinson.

Check out their great album “Wiley Ways” and they will have you too clapping and stomping your feet!

Happy New Year

Colorado Road Trip

Southward journey through NSW

Mountain Biking in NSW

Following a leisurely Christmas break, feet were getting itchy and it was time to pack up the COLORADO and head south. With the bike on the roof, with its’ SCI CON bug protection, and gear in the back we were all ready to set off down the highway.

After and early start our first stop was for breakfast and why not stop at somewhere we always past but not yet visited, THE MACADAMIA CASTLE. As with everything this time of year it was extremely busy and we were prepared for a wait for our bacon and eggs. The stay were friendly, the coffee was a very nice blend and the Bacon and eggs flavoursome.

On our way out Michelle pick up some freshly roasted, flavoured macadamia nuts, delicious!

Back on the road and the traffic was now starting to build and the average speed slowing, especially through the many smaller towns along the route which have not yet been bypassed.

Arriving late afternoon after 10 hours in the car we were happy to stretch the legs and enjoy beautiful TERRIGAL on the Central Coast.

Last job was to check the fuel economy of the COLORADO, 9.5L/100K’s, not bad for an auto with a bike on the roof.

Excellent Fuel Economy

Automatic Holden Colorado Crew Cab with bike on roof still achieves under 10l/100k’s

Fantastic MTB Trails

Checking out the trails at Smithfield MTB Park

Talk about an adventure holiday destination, Cairns in Far North Queensland has it all.

From Bungee Jumping in the rainforest with the world famous AJ Hackett team, to Jet Ski Croc Spotting Tours in the Trinity Inlet. Cairns has all types of activities for the risk seeking, daredevil, globetrotting tourist.

Sounds fun but I thought I would stick to a more safer Mountain Bike excursion out at Smithfield Mountain Bike Park.

After an hour or so of riding through the dense and very humid rainforest along the very well made single track I was exhausted and decided to pull up under the shade of a tree for a breather and some cold water.

I rested the bike against a tree and took a seat and fished out a muesli bar from my back pack. It was a very relaxing  spot amongst the rainforest trees, with a cool breeze and just the bush turkeys for company.

The trails were great to explore and some very challenging.

Unfortunately the northern half of the park was closed in preparation for the trail upgrading for the World Cup in 2014.

Beware the Stinging Trees

Smithfield Mountain Bike Park is highly recommended and the 2014 MTB World Cup a must see,  just watch out for the stinging trees if you are venturing off the beaten tracks.
