Well Mark and I just celebrated our 1st wedding anniversary. Firstly, I cannot believe that we were married a year ago; the time has just gone so fast! Secondly, it’s really amazing that we made it to our first anniversary considering the amount of “challenges” we had during our first year.
We ended up booking a night at The Westin Hotel, which we absolutely love (perhaps biased as my sister works for Starwood hotels in New York) and had a beautiful dinner out.
There wasn’t a whole lot of planning involved, so we walked from the hotel to the viaduct and looked at different restaurant options. The one thing that really frustrates me is when staff members from restaurants approach you when you are looking at the menu and kind of try and pressure you to come inside. This put me off some lovely restaurants. In the end we settled on Kermadec restaurant which was absolutely exquisite. We were able to look out over the water where all the big yachts are moored, and watch the mist roll in and then roll back out. It was kind of eerie watching the mist around the yacht masts.
The cheese board and port was absolutely to die for!
Then we went back to the hotel and watched some music videos, and then went to sleep. Woke up at around 9am and went and had a beautiful breakfast in the hotel.
Then we went home and chilled out and had Indian for dinner.
All and all, it was a fantastic day and night.
