A weekend away with my girlfriends

Picture 013

A few years ago a group of my lovely friends and I travelled to Queensland which is the northern part of Australia for a long weekend in a beach side town called Noosa.  We used to try and meet up once a year to catch up as we all live in different parts of Australia and it was a good reason to spend some times together.  Tracey, one of my friends leased a beautiful home on the canals of Noosa.


We all arrived on a Friday and I flew in from Canberra and drove up with my friend Sandy who lives about an hour away.

The home we stayed in was absolutely beautiful and we spent most of our time on the back patio which has a huge and comfortable lounge, BBQ and large table and chairs for us to eat our meals.

It even had a lap pool, but none of were swimming that weekend; too much food and wine and gossiping to be had.

The views at sunset were even more spectacular…

Evening views along the canal

Several of my friends are crazy for golf and one day we went to the golf course and whilst my friends played nine holes I walked around with them; never will I do that again…what was I thinking it was so boring…imagine watching someone hitting a ball with a stick for over an hour and half…and not only that but I forgot it takes time to get the ball ready for hitting into that small hole..so time consuming…I left them and ended up walking back to the clubhouse…


(Sandy my friend who is a very passionate golfer)

But I must say whilst it was incredibly boring walking around with the girls, there were very lovely views across the course with blossoming trees and ponds with lilies.

Back at the house, my friends made lovely food over the weekend; mostly on the BBQ with salads and fresh breads and lovely cheese and biscuits.

And Noosa not only has lovely canals but some very lovely beaches which we walked along one morning.

A wonderful time away with friends!!
