        We had a lazy morning starting with coffee, toast, and peach jam the Shelly had the foresight to buy at the farmers market the other day. We went for a bit of a drive on the islands inside the bay, visited The Heads, and had lunch at the East Head Cafe. We had interesting milkshakes and breakfast/lunch fare while ...
