Best Eats on Martha’s Vineyard: Water Street & Henry’s

It’s not often that you get a fabulous hotel that also has some of the town’s best food, but here at the Harbor View Hotel, you get it all. Whether you are looking for a decadent brunch, a scenic lunch spot or an unforgettable fresh, dinner, The Water Street restaurant is for you.
And Henry’s Hotel Bar is a nautical pub that serves above average pub food in a homey setting. Be sure to swing by for one of their cocktails as the sun goes down!

Adventure in The Outback

The Northern Territory is built for adventure and almost everything we did involved some sort of mini-adventurous activity. We hiked the mountains of Kings Canyon and 4 Wheeled through the valleys, dodging camels. We even rode domesticated camels through the bush at sunset with Uluru glowing in the background.
Not to mention, we got up-close and personal with some of the Northern Territory’s “friendly” wildlife. The Outback is not for the faint of heart. 🙂

The Food of the Northern Territory

A rough landscape requires hearty food–and that’s just what we got in the stunning Northern Territory. From campfire “damper” to hunks of meat over an open flame, to some more refined local specialities including Kangaroo, we chowed down throughout the Outback.

Australia’s Northern Territory Overview

The Northern Territory is the “Red Heart” of Australia, located in the center, this landscape is ruggedly beautiful and pre-historic feeling. I take you to UNESCO World Heritage sites, like Uluru, and I camp in Kings Canyon, the most remote place I’ve ever been. From Camel treks to 4 wheeling, to walks with local Aboriginal guides, the Northern Territory is like a different planet. And it’s wonderful.

Local Life in Australia’s Outback

The Aborigines are the oldest still living culture in the world and it was an honor to get to meet many of the locals residing in the Northern Territory. I was able to learn about “Bush Tucker” or food in the wild, dot painting and more about how their people have lived in the harsh Outback for thousands of years.
