What is Sunday, September 2nd?
It’s Fathers’ Day!
Go on, spoil dad on his big day
So, here’s what to do. Book a table at his favourite restaurant at Moffat Beach – breakfast or lunch, either will do (but book it now before everyone else beats you to it). So first thing in the morning, take him for a brisk walk along the beach to Moffat to build his appetite. Saunter up to the restaurant and sit him down at the table with the ‘reserved’ sign on it, hand him the menu, and settle down to a feast that we are sure you will enjoy too.
Just one thing. If you are having a late lunch keep your eye on the clock so that you find time to really surprise him by browsing the beautiful art at Seaview Art Gallery, a little further along the road. Perhaps you may find just the piece to really make his day. Our local artist on duty would be more than happy to assist, should you need it.
See you soon

Travel news from Janet Matthews
Our month touring Switzerland went extremely well. We had 3 days in each place we visited. We saw something great every day. We visited snowy mountains, old towns etc, and one of the places that stands out of our many, many highlights was our stay in the medieval village of Guarda, an extraordinary place. Loved it! Another highlight was our train trip to Zermatt – a world heritage train trip – what beautiful views from the train which wound around and switched backed up steep mountains. While in Zermatt we had good weather so we were lucky to see the Matterhorn standing against a blue sky, or else partly shrouded in cloud….sometimes it had just disappeared! So many highlights.
People have said to me that I must have lots of inspiration for paintings. The trips on the beautiful lakes and the stays besides the lakes are rattling around in the brain, also the wild flowers on the grassy slopes…oh, and the flowers in the window boxes – as I said things are rattling around and you never know!
A special part of Seaview Gallery is the opportunity to meet the artists. Seaview artists each take turn to be on duty at the gallery and are available to answer your questions and show you the wonderful works of art on display. You can see who will be on duty on our website SeaviewArtGallery.com.au
