A stunning setting and a beautiful sunny day made this a perfect time for my visit to Lochmara, to tell the truth I am getting a bit weary of visiting restaurants and cafe's in NZ as the process is a bit reverse Russian roulette like and although there is the occasional hit, there are many blanks fired as well. This was certainly a hit, everything came together, a nice boat ride in (after a nearby cool dive in the morning we got dropped off by Nine ( NINE DIVES ) on his recommendation) onto a jetty with a friendly welcome, a beautiful terrace overlooking the Bay, and a funny parrot entertaining us,
We had simple fish and chips for lunch and it was delicious, "clean food" Blue Cod ( which made me feel a bit guilty as we just saw his mates in the fishreserve ) in crisp batter , with chunky chips cooked just right, sitting in a sunny spot washing it away with a draught beer, served by a fun and helpfull waitress ( with beautiful curly hair ) who was full of energy and enthusiasm about the place, she also suggested we adventured into the park connected with Lochmara which we did for an amazing discovery of art and animals and views of the bay , NZ at its best., a Lochmara lodge boat ride back to our B+B in Picton made for a spectacular finish as we saw dolphins on the way !
