Ceto Restaurant Ulladulla

New Winter Menu

Amazing value: MUST check out Ceto’s new winter menu. Today was our third Saturday lunch in the past four weeks. We have shared lunches with a large group and on other occasions just as a couple. Absolutely delightful food, wonderful presentation and service PLUS Great value! Plus BYO!

Views to die for: Ceto would have to have the best restaurant water views. To add to the peacefulness and relaxation, we watched a number of fishing boats return with their catch and on two occasions witnessed this huge “Manta Ray” (sometimes referred to as one of the giants of the ocean) swimming below in shallow water.

More winter specials: 2 course menu every night $30 and on a Tuesday night 3 courses for $50.

Last Sunday night of the month during winter: Special events are advertised. Details phone: 4454 2486 or Website: Ceto Restaurant

Young ‘Carer’ locates elderly

swimmer in convalescent park!

.

Email: “Ken, Where have you been? Are you OK? Missing you at the beach”. ‘Carer’

From the Crescent Heads Convalescent Park: This was a lovely message to receive. To think someone was thinking of me up here among the unemployed, elderly and grey nomads.

Neighbours: We arrived last Monday. On Tuesday an elderly couple arrived and set up camp next us. Asked me about my BK surf board. Went on to introduce themselves, Bob and Chris Kirby from Burrill Lakes. Come Thursday a couple set up camp on the other side of us and it was Terry and Bev Conran from Burrill Lakes. Later I met the people opposite us, they were from Broulee and were heading home to attend a surf comp at Mollymook’s Golf Course Reef on the Saturday. (Small world)

Toby: He went missing during the night and after spending much time out searching for him, once found he spent the rest of his holiday in detention.

Anne- Marie was on the spot to capture this very unusual photograph emerging from the sea, a mystery man. Was it a plane? Was it a bird? Looking a little worried after realizing there were no phone booths nearby, he just stood there in front of us all and brazenly donned his cloak. There was no mistaking, ”It was Superman”!!

We now wait in anticipation for Cheryl to unveil a variety of swim wear designed for the ladies this summer.

Feedback:

“Oh no, I missed that! Is this a challenge for the other male members to turn up in their superhero outfits? I believe Cheryl is already sporting her Wonder Woman outfit”. Louise M.

“That’s terrific! That was so funny. What a good sport!. Now I cant wait for us girls to don on our superb new swim wear!!! Thanks to Cheryl”. Is 

Graeme’s birthday revisited

Swimmers night out at the Pool Bar.

 

Graeme’s Birthday REVISITED!

Roving correspondent; Roscoe files this report:  After a great day at Ceto’s last week Helen requested “can we do it again with Ross & Jo and anyone else that wants to catch up” The Harvest Bar was suggested but the “carers” were going there with their work colleagues from their other job, so as not to embarrass them Bannister’ s Pool Bar was the call. Graham and Debbie were invited to make up for the big birthday event that he didn’t attend, so the evening started off with a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday to Graham and it was all downhill from there!
.
Although the principal carers were not in attendance there were sufficient deputies to ensure an almost one on one ratio! NSW Health take note. And were they needed, almost immediately the seniors started to wander off from the enclosure, (private room), and proceeded to jump around the place in the belief that they were dancing to the music. The carers soon joined in on the dance floor and kept a watchful eye on their charges in case of any falls or injuries. A couple of noted performances were Jacqui “maracas” and dancing Dougie although some believe he was only trying to get to the bathroom!
.
The only down side to the night was the Birthday boy thinking we had bought him there as a present, he not only ordered extra takeaway but shot through without paying! Ulladulla police have been notified and are investigating.
.
All in all a great night was had by all, John Louth was last seen sneaking out for a “toke “ with some stranger who gate crashed the party.

Lunch at Ceto’s, where is Ross and Jo?

Lunch at Ceto’s, where is Ross and Jo?

Well, never a week goes by these days without a few of our Ocean Swimmers and Partners deciding to have a little social get together. Last Saturday was no exception when Jo and Ross arranged a lunch for 16 of us at Ceto’s. Unfortunately Jo and Ross came down with flu on the day so, surprise-surprise, an extra few bottles of red had to be ordered to toast their speedy recovery.
Billy’s brother Ray (a potential new swimming recruit) and wife Lisa joined the fun together with Neil and Helen’s cheerful friends Jim and Kate who we last met at Sippers a few months ago. No young carers present this day so the lack of control over this rowdy mob of seniors was dangerous. Other Ceto’s patrons were tactfully placed in a different part of the restaurant to protect their sanity and staff issued with ear plugs for safety as the conversation and laughter reached a crescendo.
All in all another wonderful lunch out with stimulating conversation and lots of laughs. Great location with harbour views. Friendly efficient service and well prepared dishes, so thanks to Ceto’s staff who will hopefully allow this noisy bunch back soon.
Of course the true test of a Mollymook Ocean Swimmer is our capacity to recover quickly and make it to the swim next morning … Some did swim next morning, but for those who need more recovery training, well there’s always another get together just around the corner. Roving reporter John L.
