In Friday’s post I informed you that I was not here, I was in Maroochydore. That information was incorrect.
A Very Public Apology.
This blog makes every effort to be factually correct at all times but on this occasion, it is with great regret that I have to inform you that……. my wife made a mistake.
We were at Mooloolaba.
Even more precisely, our apartment, from which you could actually see the sea, was in a place called Buddina, about 2 km outside of Mooloolaba and about 6 km away from Maroochydore.
I also stated that I would probably have today off. That’s not true either and I’m still working out how I can pin that one on my wife too. But let’s not worry about that now. The reason I have decided to post an article today is because I just couldn’t wait to show you these pictures.
First, let me just remind you, in case you have forgotten. Here in Australia, the first two weeks of August are considered the depths of winter. So we are well into winter here and just two and a half weeks away from the coldest period. And we’re having a seaside break?
Day One: Saturday July 11th, Mooloolaba Beach: temperature 22°C
Day Two: Sunday July 12th, Buddina Beach: temperature 24°C
Day Three: Monday July 13th, Caloundra Beach: temperature 26°C
My hope is that by showing you photographs like these, you will start to get an idea of what it’s really like to live in Australia. I do need to add though, that it was an unusually hot weekend for this time of the year and Queensland is hotter than most states. Elsewhere in Australia people were wearing coats.
But not where I live.
