Just before Christmas, it was a dull day when we had promised to take our Swiss visitors to the beach. So we set off for the Sunshine Coast just north of Brisbane.
There is a ribbon of beaches stretching for miles. Our first stop was Mooloolaba Beach.
There is a famous toilet block built right on the beach with a great view.
This is the view from the loo (which is my header at the moment but I had wrongly labelled it Noosa)
After coffee at Mooloolaba we drove further north to Noosa Beach where we had.........
lunch overlooking he beach. Our young visitors went for a surf while we watched .........
a sand sculptor at work.
Even further south Tasmania has had dreadful bushfires. One whole small town was burnt out.
