  On a clear day, you can dream a lot

When you drive down Stockton St you will sooner or later come to D'Albora Marina. There you can turn left to Salamander Bay, right to Shoal Bay or simply park and enjoy the two dozen shops and restaurants and their enchanting viewpoint over Port Stephens. Since I'm a bit of a regular, it's an activity I heartily recommend. Apart from a couple of franchised outlets there are several individual eating places, some with a tendency to seafood, also understandable as the Fishermen's Co-op is 100 metres down the road and, when you're by the water, what do you expect?
There are a couple of arts and crafts shops, the usual women's clothing shops and, lots and lots of boats. Many that people on my salary could only fantasize about. Still, that's part of the attraction. While you sip your chardy, at least you can dream.
