Sunshine Coast (minus the sunshine)

From the city skyscrapers in Brisbane to the tranquility of waves breaking on the beach at Mooloolaba, our Queensland explorations continue. It may be winter in Australia, but I don't think you can ever turn down a visit to the 'Sunshine Coast'...

Rewind 24 hours. Any meal featuring three types of sausage truly is a gastronomic wonder. Joining us round the dinner table on this occasion were Dad, Kate, Isaac, Sammy, Guy and Carolyn.

We set off for the Sunshine Coast. Although blue sky was at a premium, it was still comfortably warmer than Albury - and no colder than London - as we walked along the beach at Mooloolaba.

Yes, it's another meal time snapshot. Rachel's aunt and uncle, Liz and Chris, joined us for lunch at the Surf Club. Excellent carvery and a fine selection of desserts.

Out on the water was a large fleet of boats. We discovered this was day one of the annual Etchells Australasian Winter Championship. A fairly big deal in these parts.

When the wind picked up, we suspected rain could be in the air and called for coffees all round. Dad spent the day on a Boris bike in Brisbane.
