After a hearty breakfast Don guided us on a driving tour of the Sunshine Coast, not living up to it’s name today. We went to the Maroochydore North Shore for a walk along the beach, the wind freshening and rain threatening all the time, conditions ideal for riding the surf on jetskis. Novotel resort was next for a refreshing fruit drink, and a quick look at the blog on one of the lobby computers.
We persuaded Don to show us the house he had looked at in Mountain Creek, but on the way a snack from a sandwich bar run by an friendly Essex Girl provided lunch (The propeller is from a ship wrecked here which gave it’s name to Dicky Beach – the Dicky bit, that is!). We found ‘Don’s House’ and photographic evidence is provided below. On the way back we called in on Don’s brother and his wife, Peter and Esme, at Pelican Waters for a chat over a coffee and cake (a diet is becoming necessary). Just after the arrival back ‘hime’ the heavens opened.
