Busy Times!

Very busy few weeks on the Sunshine Coast.  
A Wedding, catching up with family, having a wonderful time with 3 of our grandchildren & their parents. Also catching up with friends from home who now live in and around this area.
Driving here and there with a little shopping inbetween, plus another busy week ahead with the heater on every night, infact it's been colder than where we live. (at night only)  When all said and done it is 'winter'.
The beach is across the road, we have a swimming pool here at the Apartment.





The Maroochy River


The Big Pineapple, Nambour.  Queensland.
This was left to ruin and has now been restored with a train ride and market at the site thus far.
There was a pinapple orchard there once, and I can remember it was a great tourist attraction.
