Week 33 One Daily Positive and Project 365. Still in Australia.

Forgot to mention last week that the flat finally sold and the money came through, phew. Just the council tax to pay for dates owed, but I need to call them so that will have to wait, plus I need to sort the electricity bill out, however the water was easy to do as I didn't set up an account after the tenant left in November.

Loving our visit to Australia, just a week left, then home for work. We've seen and experienced so much since we've been here and are already planning our next trip here in 2023.

224 Saturday Drove up to Mossman for the weekend, staying in the rain forest, visiting waterfalls along the way and beautiful walks in the rain forest.

225 Sunday A day in the Daintree rain forest which involved a river ferry crossing and a beautiful scenic drive. 

226 Monday Day spent on the beach at Port Douglas, then off to the airport to fly to Brisbane and collect hire car before driving up to the Sunshine Coast for the week. Son and girlfriend flew back to Sydney for work.

227 Tuesday We spent the day in and around where we are staying, long coastal walks, coffees and dinner out. The sunsets here are amazing, must get up early for a sun rise.

228 Wednesday We drove towards Brisbane, found a park and ride train about 40 mins out and paid $25 return. parking in the City was about $16 per hour and it also saved us the stress. Got off the train on the South Bank to explore then crossed the river to the City for lunch and a wander round to the Botanical Gardens. Stopped at the supermarket on the way back for dinner.

229 Thursday Drove north to Noosa to explore more of the area and a beautiful coastal walk. Looked for Koala's that inhabit the area but didn't see any, but we did see Whales blowing water in the distance.

230 Friday Packed and enjoyed a leisurely drive south of Brisbane to the Gold Coast stopping off for coffees and lunch along the way to meet son for the weekend at the next part of our trip. Went on the beach to read our books. Had a wonderful meal in the evening on a roof top bar.
