Mother’s Day Dinner

It’s Mother’s Day down here in the Antipodes, and we celebrated a day early with a Mothers Day Dinner at Waitarere Beach.  This was  new establishment to us, we had never been to Pipi Point Restaurant before, and a group of about 20 of us pooled cars and drove up for a night out.

Inside, the place was humming, and most of the tables were full.  Just as well we had a booking for us all in the back room.

Welcome, enter inside

We all found a seat and settled down.  It’s not surprising that this restaurant specializes in fish meals.  I enjoyed a Fish Basket which included tasty seafood wontons, very yummy, and Robin had Fish of the Day.

The food was great, and very large portions indeed.  I noticed several taking a doggy bag home as they couldn’t finish the meal.  There was plenty of chatter going on around the large table, and once again, it was amazing to find out from our table partners that we have friends in common.  And Robin discovered that he and another man who looked vaguely familiar worked at Post Office Headquarters together many years ago.  It’s certainly a small world.
