A round up of some of the things we have been doing lately
Update - October 21st 2001
Marcoola Beach - Sunshine Coast
Nothing like a good holiday to refresh the mind and body (and reduce the bank balance!). We flew into Brisbane
early Friday morning and stayed with John, Pat, Mark & Luke at Albany Creek, on the outskirts of Brisbane.
It is always good to catch up with friends, have few beers and swap news. Their hospitality was much appreciated :-)
On the Sunday we drove up to Marcoola. The Sunshine Coast is 90 minutes north of Brisbane and an easy drive.
It's much quieter than the Gold Coast which suited us just fine. We never seem to take many photos (too busy doing things!) when we go away so for
some professional views of the area have a look at
Our holidays follow a predictable pattern of golfing, shopping and sightseeing. It noticeable that
we are doing more of the first two nowadays - getting old/lazy??? The golf courses were all excellent.
Twin Waters Golf Course is a resort course which reminded
us of Cayman.
Mount Coolum Golf Course is a beautiful course nestled below a mountain.
Some narrow fairways made it tough going at times.
Noosa Springs Golf Course was the best course we played
(we also had our best games here). We walked all the courses and came away feeling tired but happy and ready for a good meal and drink or two.
Of course the malls got a good pasting and we've both stocked up our wardrobes for another year (sorry few months - Georgina). Georgina also met up with a friend she trained with in NZ in the early #%$'s Rosemary & Ken live in Daisy Hill, south of Brisbane but came up to the
Sunshine Coast and we met up in Mooloolaba Surf Club for lunch and a chat. Well Georgina & Rosemary had the chat, Ken & Rodger played the pokies
and gee gees ( Ken certainly has the Midas touch - Rodger could have cut out the middle man and given his money straight to Ken!!)
We did do a bit of sightseeing (some of unintentional when we got lost driving around). After seeing him on TV who could resist going to see
Steve Irwin *Crocodile Hunter* at the
Australia Zoo*. For sure, after finding out about the snakes, crocodiles and spiders in
Australia neither of us went looking for lost golf balls ...
