My mother has a knack with the little touches that make you welcome. These roses are from one of her rose bushes which blooms prolifically all year round & is just a lovely, lovely rose.
Eat your heart out Liddy because the Wetlands Walk was open & that's where we went first thing on Saturday. Great walk along the raised boardwalk
which terminates at the Maroochy River where Mt Coolm rises majestically in the distance.
Then next door to have lunch at the Strawberry farm where Star & I promptly horrified Ma by deciding that the fondue for two was an acceptable lunch!
It was very, very good! ☺Then on to view the Finnish memorial. Of all the surprising facts about this area of the Sunshine Coast this takes the cake: the Finns were the first to settle here. Although it is boggish & prone to low lying pools of water I can't think it was much like their homeland in any other way. Weird.
And to finish the day, a walk along the beach. It was very pleasant once the heat was off the sand & the crowds had dispersed. We all slept very well!
