Having a great time

So far so good. We stayed the first couple of days in Redcliffe, just north of Brisbane, in a motel on the beach. Great cafes, amazing playgrounds for the kids and lovely beach walks.

Then to Moffat Beach on the Sunshine Coast, where we stayed in an amazing apartment, again on the beach. Beautiful sunrises (I know this because the kids are jetlagged and getting up at 3.30am!) and the parakeets start their dawn chorus at exactly 5.45am everyday. We love this place. The beach is wonderful, no crowds, best fish and chips we’ve had for years and a really relaxed, friendly feel to it. People are lovely. We’ll be back.

This morning, after having been to a couple of outdoor weekend markets, to buy fresh fruit and vegetables, we drove up the coast to Maroochydore. I’m so disappointed! It’s grown into a crowded, touristy, expensive, flashy awfulness. We booked into our apartment, where we’re staying for one night and went straight down to the swimming pool, which we had all to ourselves. I feel much better now….. I’m sitting at the computer, in the sun, in my swimming costume and a sarong to write this. Does life get any better?

Now I’m off to get ready for when my cousins come for a visit.

Hope all’s well with all of you. 🙂
