This weekend I stayed up in Newcastle for a totally boring reason (had to do a mandatory 1st Aid course). However, I had quite an interesting weekend.
On Sunday, I was woken up at 12:30pm (don't judge me) by a text from Ben saying "We r outside, waiting for u", and another one saying "HURRY UP GIRL." Then I remembered the lunch plans.
We had lunch at the 3 Monkeys cafe on Darby St. Pretty sure everyone up here is familiar with it, but if you're not, I highly recommend it as the food is great. And you have to try their milkshakes and Geisha tea.

Salmon and potato cakes
We then drove to Bar Beach and walked around for a bit before piling back into the car because it was too damn cold.
Then cruised around town, like so:

Was tempted to jump on but instead looked on enviously as everyone onboard smirked and waved grandly from their carriages. Especially those in the 1st class and dining car.
So it was a pleasant day all around. I even made my first foray into street style photography, here:
