28 Jun It’s a Wrap!!
It’s a wrap!
What a first season it has been!
To sit and reflect upon the previous 24months is quite extraordinary. From those embryonic stages (of which we are still in) to sitting here now contemplating the possibilities for the next season.
I am so grateful for the local community support we have received week after week, the positive feedback and encouragement makes all the difference to a small business.
It is fantastic to be able to support local business in return – from our locally made cocktail sauce, hand churned butter, freshly baked rolls, even our fresh lemons are supplied by a local family business.
Friday nights down at Bayview Park have just grown week upon week. The park filling with picnickers laden with blankets and chairs, bottles of wine – and most importantly their family and friends.
I wanted my new business venture to be about two things, food and people So far it is delivering on both these things. I truly look forward to seeing my regulars each week, they have become friends not just customers. We share stories back and forth about each others lives.
I just love to see groups of friends connecting each week as they share our delicious fresh prawns and rolls –
“…how much should we get this week?…no you paid last week this time it’s my shout! “
Another local stops by, he comes most weeks mainly for the chat I think – he tells me each time that he is turning 80 next birthday (still rides a push bike down to see us) just amazing! He is so passionate about telling us his life stories and adventures, he makes his own honey too from the local gums in Bayview – we always buy a jar.
A lovely couple who live opposite the park – tell us they sit on their balcony and watch us setting up each week. Always happy to see us so busy and then feeling for us if the weather is not so kind.
Our kids now meet their friends down in the park too – the boys have made a ‘fort’ in the mangroves and the girls bring their bikes and roller blades down, another occasion to connect.
We look forward to seeing YOU down there in the new season!
