The wine,Swinging Gate pinot gris was fine.

Though they obviously didn't want to waste the old 2020 labels!
Now we ordered a dozen oysters to share.Mrsdrron then ordered the Greek lamb chops and I the pork fillet in a creamy paprika sauce.This is how it came.

Yes everything at once.Mrsdrron's Greek lamb was nothing like Greek lamb.

And my pork fillet was drowned in sauce.

As we were finishing the chef/cook came out and asked how everything was.He tried to blame the 3 dishes arriving at once on the waiter.Sorry a table of 2 ordered all 3 dishes together.As they say doesn't pass the pub test and we won't be back.

Thursday was a public holiday for the Launceston show which hasn't been held for 3 years.So an excellent day to go and look at the Table Cape tulips.What's more the Bom were forecasting a fine morning for Wynyard.So be prepared for lots of flowers.
We gave the car a good view for the duration as we were directed to the seniors car park.Grey hair sometimes helps.

Then off to a late lunch at Fish on the Edge at Wivenhoe.I really like this placeas the food is always very good.You can get anything from the menu at any time it is open so no problem with a late lunch.
Mrsdrron had the crumbed scallops with sweet potato fries and I had the seafood laksa - it is a very good laksa with a generous amount of seafood.
