We borrowed a friend's GPS for the trip - what an ingenious device! Can't wait to get one ourselves, although the voice of Yoda got a bit annoying after a while. It took us all through back roads which was apparently the quickest route but was also probably the most scenic.
We arrived at Silver Waters Bed & Breakfast, which was just a block or two from the centre of Cowes.
The first day we went exploring, checking out the menus of all the restaurants and cafes. We had lunch at a cute cafe/new & used bookstore, but another customer was sitting right in front of the $5 and less books so unfortunately I didn't get to look at them.
We checked out the beaches of Cowes, they were alright, but very rocky and lots of seaweed. We went for a drive and found another, much pretty beach called Woolamai.
That night there was the Twilight Market in Cowes, which was pretty cool. It was mostly jewellery stalls and carnival type food stalls, but there were a few other really cool art stalls. I especially liked the birdhouses. We didn't buy much, just a corn-on-the-cob-on-a-stick each, which we made part of our dinner - chicken and roast vegies from a kebab/chicken shop (I didn't have the chicken, just the vegies. They were good!). We had a nice relaxing time just lying about in our room, watching tv, reading magazines etc..
