Kendall's birthday today! Last year for her birthday she and I drove up to Yungaburra and had dinner at Eden House and then stopped the night at the Kookaburra Lodge. We both love Yungaburra so much and had such a good time last year that we decided to do it again this year.
As a special treat I booked us into one of Eden House's garden cottages - really beautiful.
The cottages are set in a rainforest setting and are decorated in a tropical/country style.
One wall of the bathroom was all glass and opened onto a private tropical courtyard. I must admit it did feel a bit strange showering in the open!
Dinner at Eden House was fantastic. We opted for a bruschetta starter and then both decided on the pumpkin gnocchi for main course. Delicious! Of course we had to toast her birthday with a glass or three of champagne! Luckily it was only a short walk back to our cottage.
This morning we had breakfast on the verandah of Eden House. I had a fabulous omelette and Kendall had French toast with rhubarb and custard.
To top the morning off - Kendall had a massage in the Day Spa whilst I relaxed with a magazine in our cosy little cottage.
After checking out we headed down the highway to Malanda and checked out the markets and then drove on to Innisfail.
It is always so nostalgic visiting Innisfail. So many memories.
Kendall and I have decided that Yungaburra and Eden House will be her birthday tradition. It was so great to be able to share this day with her. We are never lost for conversation and had plenty of laughs. It was a great day!
