If there was ever a perfect day of weather to take a flight on a Sydney Seaplane, then our winner Sandra certainly picked it!
Last October you may remember Your Local Greengrocer’s Million Dollar Mango competition which saw winners from several of our participating member greengrocers take home a range of incredible prizes, including our bespoke 18 carat gold, diamond pendant valued at $10,000.
One of those feature prizes was a Sydney Seaplane/Jonah’s restaurant package for two. And one of our lucky shoppers who scored this fantastic package was Sandra Jenkins from Parisi’s Food Hall Rose Bay – an award winning independent retailer in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs known for their premium grocery lines and top quality fresh produce.
Thankful to her daughter Jessica for kindly gifting her this amazing prize, Sandra decided to share the family love. In celebrating her and husband Tonys’ 25th wedding anniversary, they were able to treat themselves to a luxurious day of limousine riding, seaplane flying and fine dining!
The day began with a limousine picking up the lovely couple right outside their home in Sydney’s Sutherland Shire. After being chauffeured to their departure point at Rose Bay’s Lyne Park, before they knew it Sandra and Tony were bracing themselves for an exhilarating flight as they took off to the skies.
And the skies that day couldn’t have been any clearer or bluer – ideal flying conditions for the pair to get a good glimpse of Sydney’s coastline. Taking in the spectacular views of Sydney’s Northern Beaches throughout the flight, the sights certainly didn’t stop there.
“It was unreal seeing all the great landmarks you typically take for granted like the Sydney Opera House & Sydney Harbour Bridge. When you’re up in the air it’s a totally different experience.” Said Sandra.
Arriving at their destination, Sandra and Tony enjoyed a unforgettable 3-course meal at the prestigious ocean restaurant Jonah’s. Perched on a cliff-top, the multi-award winning property features commanding views across Whale Beach and the Pacific Ocean.
“Both of us just had the most amazing time! The weather was perfect and the location was breathtaking – such a wonderful day to celebrate our special occasion.”
“We want to thank the team at Parisi’s Food Hall Rose Bay and Your Local Greengrocer, we enjoyed every minute of the experience & will never forget it!”
