Just back from a week between Hayman and Hamilton Islands.

If I go to a resort, I expect to be the fattest person there not the skinniest, as happened at Hamilton.

Crook expensive Italian, a quite OK steakhouse that strangely operated like a Coles Cafeteria (see picture) and a stroke of luck in the pretty good seafood joint where the young apprentice killed the 6 large mudcrabs to be presented live that evening, so they sold them cooked and chilled. Both the quality and price were nice surprises.

Hayman much more civilised (and of course expensive) and I didn’t realise that it was such a family resort.

OK Italian, good mod-Asian (very nice beef satays that went in an instant-see picture) and a very very good if completely out of place formal French grand dining room, which our ten year old thought was very fancy and loved. Caesar salad made at the table from scratch and a lovely slow cooked lamb shoulder and rare loin together.

Back to cold grey Sydney. Bugger.
