It’s been far too long since we’ve been to the beach, so today we remedied that. It was a gorgeous day, with the kind of weather that makes South-East Queensland such a lovely place to live. We folded down the roof on our little Fiat and soaked up the sunshine as we drove north to the appropriately named Sunshine Coast for the day.
We didn’t have a clear destination in mind when we set off, but during the drive we decided that a visit to Underwater World was well overdue. We’ve visited aquariums in various parts of the world, but somehow never got around to visiting the one nearest us. So Mooloolaba became our destination of choice. We had as much fun as we usually do at aquariums – admiring both the cute fuzzy creatures and the weird and wonderful ones.
Then we went and behaved like proper Queenslanders and spent some time on the beach. It was as lovely as we’d hoped. And for a change we even managed to sunscreen Geoff enough to avoid sunburn!
