It is our last day in Maroochydore today as we are taking the next step north tomorrow. We are not quite sure where we will stop but we are just enjoying our life of ‘no plan’.
Our week on the Sunshine Coast has been very social. We have met some great people at the Cotton Tree Park all of whom have a similar philosophy to life as ourselves. While we are heading north tomorrow, most are following over the next few weeks so we hope to catch up with most of them again in the near future.
As indicated in our last blog update, we headed a little north yesterday and went to the Eumundi Markets. It was only a 40 minute drive but a very pleasant way to spend a morning. The market had a lot of ‘must haves’ but we managed to keep spending to a minimum. Because we have limited space in the motorhome, every time we buy something new, we have to throw something old away. Serious thought goes into every new purchase!
After the markets we headed up to Noosa for lunch them drove back down the coast road through Coolum Beach and to Maroochydore. Stunning views, stunning weather and stunning company!
When we arrived back at the Park mid afternoon, a 5pm ‘pot luck’ bar-b-que had been arranged at one of the communal cooking sites. We shuffled along to the event and again met new people and participated in interesting traveller conversations. After the bar-b-que a few of us walked along to the Maroochydore Surf Club to watch the Lions vs Australia game. A lovely day with lovely people.
Today was a ‘restock of the motorhome’ day just in case we end up tomorrow in a place with no shopping facilities. We took a wee break at lunch time and went down to the Mooloolaba wharf and had a delicious meal of fresh prawns.
We are not quite sure what time we will get away in the morning but hope to be on the road by about midday. No pressure.
Hi Rod & Dearne
Was great to catch up with you both in sunny Maroochydore, the van is a little stunner, and the bed looks so cosy and inviting!
