Weekends with Angie & James | Part I: Breakfast at Elephant Rock

We got up exceptionally early on Saturday to drop Ann and Steve off at Coolangatta Airport, then proceeded to have a lazy breakfast at the charming Elephant Rock Café, located along the scenic Currumbin beachfront. There was a visible storm out at sea, glorious and frightening, but it was still intermittently sunny where we sat. Smoky coffee and hearty food, the sound of crashing waves and the smell of the salty sea air, the clinking of cutlery and the chatter of patrons, the rolling clouds above and the sporadic rays of sunlight – it was an incredibly relaxing morning. After filling ourselves up on eggs and salmon and sausages and caffeine, we took a slow walk around the precinct, savouring the ocean view until it started to drizzle (boo). Then we jogged back to the car, went for a drive around Burleigh and finally made a quick trip to Robina to pick up some groceries for dinner. The sky started to clear up again by the time we got home.

  1. Absolutely stunning photography and blog you have! At this very minute I am in the middle of planning our trip to Australia in June, these pictures got me excited to go!

    1. Thank you, Jamie! Gosh, I am SO excited for you! It’ll be winter in Australia in June – a very refreshing time for you to visit! I wish you the best of luck in your planning and I hope you enjoy yourself! :)

      1. Thanks so much! We decided to start at Sydney and head up the coast to Queensland in hopes of maybe getting some winter days at the beach in :) I mean, coming from New Zealand, I’m pretty sure their winter days are still warmer than our summers!
