Historic Como Hotel and Como Marina, NSW

As promised I'm back to share more images from my wanderings around my new surroundings. Last week I posted about Carina Bay Reserve and the fairy land beyond and this week it's all about the historic Como hotel and quaint little Marina that are a short walk from where I live.

Above and below - beautiful historic Como hotel - believe it or not I haven't yet been here to enjoy a drink or a meal but I know it won't be too far away and am sure it will become a regular place to visit.

Above and below: opposite the hotel is Scylla Bay Reserve - a sports ground right on the water's edge... down by the water there is also a little jetty and a bench or two to sit and take in all the beauty.

Above and below: Como Marina with its quaint little weatherboard buildings. It includes Como Cafe... yet another place on my list to visit for a meal; a little arts and crafts shop (only open at the weekends) and just at the entrance to the Marina is the Thai Rim Nam restaurant... yes, you guessed it, another place to visit for a meal (images further down). I might even write about the menus at each place when I do get around to experiencing them all but in the meantime, visiting the website will give you a look at the menu there. Going out for a meal with friends is hard when everyone is so busy so these things are no longer a regular occurrence in my life... not only that, people do tend to hibernate in winter so hopefully when the weather warms up we'll be out and about more.

Above and below, the Thai Rim Nam restaurant...

The Como Marina was also the home of the Como Markets but they have now moved to the Como Public School (Genoa Street, Como) just up the road and are held on the 2nd Sunday of the month from 9m - 2pm. It is an art and antique market with approximately 40 stalls and yes... I can't believe I am going to admit this publicly (because I am such a market goer)... I haven't been yet!!! I guess I'm waiting for the weather to warm up for this as well and we have had alot of rain since I've arrived here... the good thing is, is there is no hurry and I like to explore things at my own leisure... I guess finding the natural surroundings first has been my main focus... finding all these wonderful venues along the way just gives me more to look forward to.

Next week I will be sharing one of my favourite finds yet... so stay tuned. Enjoy the rest of the weekend.
