NOOSA

Day 2 of trip to Sunshine Coast


Breakfast on the balcony with our children, which doesn't happen very often. The children went to their other family to celebrate a birthday, so we entertained ourselves in Noosa a top tourist destination on the Sunshine Coast.

Noosa is a sheltered beach and the waves are not big, but recently storms have washed away much of the sand and beach.

The life savers are patrolling in their boat.


Rather than swim we preferred to find a restaurant for lunch. This one had a great view and good food......

.......and good service, the waiter insisted on taking a photo of us.

BB had salmon on a vegie salad

I had a pear and blue cheese salad on brazil nut polenta and roast pumpkin. (Yum,Yum)

After lunch we strolled along the boardwalk......

....into the forest.....

...with the bush turkeys.....

......and back onto the main street (Hastings)......

......where there are restaurants and.....

...tourist shops and....

...ugly resorts and....


...expensive jewelery and dress shops and......

''''nice coffee shops and...

...Real Estate Agents selling apartments for 2.2 million dollars....

...anyone interested?

  5. Looks like a relaxing and enjoyable day. I'm with you... I'd be beach-watching over swimming anyway. Great shots of the little shops in the village.

  7. A great visit Diane...Noosa the most expensive Real Estate in Australia I read somewhere once...

    A beautiful spot...I love the north coast particularly the wild side on Sunshine Beach and the wind...normally a person who detests wind but is fitting on the Sunshine Beach.....

    Oh yes enjoyed the lunch with you, the taste buds are imagining
