A day to be proud of

Arose early and packed my gear for a day in Noosa, walking the Noosa National Park and hopefully spot a whale or two. I also managed to print raffle tickets for the espresso machine and decided that the tickets be sold for $2.00 each.

Had a great breakfast and my BGL was at 4.5, a good start for the day. Andy arrived just after 7 and off we went.

The traffic was fairly light for the run up the Bruce Highway and we missed the Yandina turn-off, so went to Eumundi instead. From there it was a quick drive across through Tewantin and on to Noosa Junction before arriving in Sunshine Beach and the meet point at the junction of Surf Street and Parkedge Road. We then waited for the other participants.

We then walked off with Gavins Water Bottle providing the commentary on the Glasshouse Bushwalkers Club Inc. blog at .

After the walk Andy gets back in the car and declares that he is short of fuel. We decided that Coolum would be the best bet, so headed there. Arriving at Coolum, the service station was found but couldn’t turn right to get into it. Andy said he was sure there was one on the Coolum Beach Road between the beach and the Sunshine Motorway. I agreed as I was also sure I had seen one.

Sure enough we found the BP and so while Andy filled up I went and got drinks. I was so thirsty! Andy came in and went to the toilet. So while in there I paid for the fuel, to his surprise.

So we headed home and arriving about 2.45 pm, unpacked the gear and stowed it away and put together the clothes to wash… No soap powder! Sue’s gone shopping and just came back too! Will have to wash later!

Settled down for the afternoon and gloated about the great weekend that had been, I had walked in two days the distance of one day of the Great Ocean Walk. Need to step it up next weekend! Although the Bushcare in the middle of Saturday’s walk gave my upper body a bit of curry!

So the rest of the night was to prepare for work the next day and then go to bed with a bit of Olympics to tire me out!
