~Dinner at Nundle......GDITC 2013~

On the way to dinner at Nundle we passed this cabin with the 'Girlfriends' (as JoJo calls the Nundle girls now) sitting outside we stopped to check out the quilts hanging over railing
They were all to be donated to a Cancer lovely is that, all with hearts on them too!!!

One of the roads in Nundle......what a beautiful spot this was.......we just loved it!!!

On the Church itself was this 1882 sign...

Rustic looking bench on the way to dinner

I really love old furniture......have a look at the old table in the foreground especially it's top
looks like the legs might be different to the table top

The venue for our meal 'Mount Misery Gold Mine Cafe'
The cafe is located in the restored Coffin Makers Cottage built by George Davidson in the 1870’s and is featured on the cover of Slim Dusty’s Album Dinki-di-Aussie.

Most Rustic stuff on the inside

Our table with Dawnie, Deb, Susan

Looking outside from behind Deb

Above 2 shots......out the back and lots of tin

And finally the meals
Award winning Smoked Trout from the Arc-en-Ciel Trout Farm

and a Thai Beef Salad
Both very delicious.......but I fell in love with the atmosphere this place just oozed!!!

Dinner on Saturday evening was at the Peel Inn with the Hotel being 146 years old and still going strong!!!

Ooo! I think I am the first one here at table with you!

Dearest Dzintra, your travels are a joy. Look at all the rustic loveliness here! But the most touching of all are the hearts, stitched by hands that care. What a joy and what a comfort for those who have to battle this disease that took both of my parents. You are just the best. Anita

Nundle certainly does have a lot to offer for a small place.

If it manages to hang on long enough it becomes trendy again. Nundle seems to be re inventing it self. Glad you all seemed to have a good time.
