Soaking up the sun in the Sunshine Coast

Soaking up the sun in the Sunshine Coast

Stine and me had a morning run along the beach with the prettiest scenery once again. On the way we found this big swimming lagoon where we spent the morning splashing. 

Is this the life or what?

Next we were heading to the Glasshouse Mountains. In 1770 Captain James Cook wrote in his journal: 'These hills lie but a little way inland, and not far from each other: they are remarkable for the singular form of their elevation, which very much resembles a glass house, and for this reason I called them Glass Houses.' The Glasshouse Mountains are in fact volcanic crags. 

We had lunch at the car park and ran into a little friend:

And not so little either, about a metre long!

It would have been nice to go for a walk in the mountains and get to know the Aboriginal history of the place, too. The majority of Jucy, however, was in a hurry to go and burn some flesh on the beaches of Noosa, since the Sunshine Coast was living up to its name and the weather was perfect.

The Sunshine Coast, north from Brisbane, is a big holiday resort but less developed and intense than the Gold Coast, and therefore a bit more relaxed. Noosa Heads is the trendy, sophisticated centre of Sunshine Coast with its five-star hotels. The first thing we got there, we hit the beach. We had a look around the town and had drinks, the second best pina colada of my life.

We parked on Sunshine Beach a short drive from Noosa. Stine and me went out and had a fun night.
