Settlement Cove

To make the most of all this awesome summer weather that we’ve been having (yes, I’m being sarcastic) we headed to Settlement Cove Lagoon for lunch yesterday, along with The Threebies and The Donnachies. Actually, as luck would have it, yesterday turned out to be a beautiful day, with plenty of blue sky and sunshine to accompany our outing. Most impressed!

My only memory of being at Settlement Cove is from many, many moons ago, and I don’t think I’ve ever swum there before. It’s a very impressive installation, and it’s all completely free (well, run at the taxpayer’s expense at least!). The BBQs aren’t the world’s most flash to cook on, but did you see the price? Free! No-one’s can complain (much) about that!

Sadly, I didn’t get even one photo of the lagoon; in fact, the only photo I took all day was this one, of Oscar and Kristy playing in the playground next to where we were camped.


We’ve booked a follow-up visit with the same gang for March, so with any luck I’ll remember my camera and take some photos then, instead!
