Holiday in Sunny Queensland

August 13, 2012

My daughter and I recently snuck away for a sunshine break in beautiful Queensland [whilst M. Bonbon was overseas]. We spent our time with my family in Brisbane and on the Sunshine Coast. We visited the West End Markets, where we shopped and ate our way through the huge array of stalls. We wandered the CBD and found my great-uncle’s sculpture [‘The Bankers’] hanging in Queen St.  We had a lovely night out with family at the Breakfast Creek Hotel and finished off the weekend with a trip to the Sunshine Coast.  We drove the old road into Caloundra, past the beautiful Glasshouse Mountains. Ever the enthusiastic market shoppers; we visited the Caloundra markets and spent the afternoon at Moffat Beach, where we ate the best fish and chips that I’ve tasted in a long time.  I thought I’d share a few photos with you.

As you can see we had plenty of blue skies and sunshine, but it was good to return home to Melbourne again.

Thanks for popping by,
