Sunshine Coast/Coolum

Monday 23rd September, (Sunshine Coast/Coolum Beach).

A very relaxing day was spent yesterday doing absolutely nothing, and it was enjoyed very much.

Today we ventured back up to Noosa Heads and walked about 10k around the National Park. Some of the scenery was quite spectacular, especially the rugged coastline. Linda made a comment on how blue the ocean water was, so below are a couple of pics to try to demonstrate not only the water but the rugged coast as well.

A call from Matthew yesterday revealed that they would in fact be coming to Brisbane later this week. Linda is now thrilled to find out that she will meet them after all, I am too.

We have noticed another spectacular aspect of the Sunshine coast today, thunderstorms, we had one the other night that Linda said only lasted about half an hour; I didn’t notice being asleep, and this afternoon we experienced another. One minute it was sunny and warm, the next it was pouring and a thunder storm, it lasted about 30 minutes, and then if it wasn’t for getting dark it would have been sunny and warm again.

We have now decided that we will put up with the holidaymakers and stay here until Wednesday as planned. Well we decided before the thunderstorm arrived, which would have convinced us anyway, with everything getting wet. If we had planned to move tomorrow we would have wanted to pack up tonight and the storm would have prevented that.

Not much planned for tomorrow, so this could be an ideal time to close this chapter and start another from arriving in Brisbane on our way to our going home for Christmas.
