Eating Out In Sydney: Woolwich Pier Hotel Over the weekend I had a desire for a steak! We don’t eat much red meat in our house with a vegetarian who eats chicken so when my young Miss was at a party we ventured to our local pub Woolwich Pier Hotel. As we waited for our dinner with a few drinks this time sitting in the bar stool along a long share bench, I got the opportunity to take in the bar.  The subway tiling that had been used stood out to me, maybe that's because I’m trying to make up my mind...

Black bath tubs - There is something about a black bath that just makes me stop!   Its different, its elegant and its special. There is always the expectation that bath tubs will be white.
