A week on the Sunshine Coast
We have returned home after our brilliant holiday. It is hard to choose pictures to show you as we took so many. We stayed at the Mantra in Mooloolaba. Gorgeous views. We even saw whales from the balcony. It was incredibly hot and sunny. I am more of a Spring temperature girl I think. There were thousands of bikini clad creatures decorating the beach. I spent a lot more time in the rockpools than I did sunning my palid body. I have decided that I want to be able to wear a bikini without shame. I am sure a bikini would be suitable for exploring rockpools, don't you? We visited the aquarium, Australia Zoo and took a day trip to Fraser Island, which is the biggest sand island in the world. It is absolutely smothered in wildlife and plants, which is incredible. We had a swim in Lake McKenzie. Such a stunning, clear lake. I will add some more stuff about the holiday in the next couple of days. We are off to spend a heap of money on the deposit on our section. We met the house architect yesterday. Mum and I are all excited about the possibilities of finding delicious fabrics on E-Bay for the curtains and cushions. Brilliant!
You can see the view from our hotel room, wombats having a love with their keeper, me with a seaslug telling me it is annoyed (they don't have a brain, so it can't be too traumatised by meeting me), looking out over the rockpools (our hotel is not far behind me) and the amazing Lake McKenzie.
