Sunshine Coast

Wednesday 14th July 2004, (Still on the Sunshine Coast).

It’s been a while again, but when one is batching and not doing a great deal there is not much to report.

I have been a little productive though putting finishing touches to the outdoor gas cooker I built, and after purchasing another hose with the correct fittings, to prevent leaks, it now works like a bought one. I also built a windbreak around it and when something is on the cooker the breeze has nil effect.

I have been having a little look around on my pushbike and have located a couple of areas that I would intend returning to with my camera one day to take some shots of the area and buildings.

A short bushwalk up Mount Coolum today revealed a very scenic lookout of the Sunshine Coast. We had heard about this lookout on our earlier visit two years ago, but reports were that the track was very steep and recommendations were that we do not attempt it. It turned out that a sign at the start of the walk recommended ‘experienced bushwalkers only’, and although the track was rather rocky and steep it was not all that bad after all.
