This morning, we set out pretty early to explore some of the beaches. We went to visit the lighthouse at Point Cartwright in Mooloolaba. The beach here is really magnificent – white and long with calm, azure blue seas.
We then took a drive along the coast and stopped off a Marichydore (interesting names – they have Aboriginal orgins). Here, we went for lunch at Sizzler. This was a delicious trip down memory lane as Uncle Jules took my family there when we first visited Sydney in 1994. It made a great impression. The restaurant is centred around an extensive buffet, which costs $11 for a never-ending plate. There are soups, salads, pasta and the yummiest potato skins. I ate my fill and then finished it off with a self-made ice-cream sundae complete with smarties, marshies and oreo cookie crumbles – yum!!!!
We then walked off our lunch at the Sunshine Beach Plaza – which is a pretty big mall with all the main Ozzie chain stores.
Our last stop for the day was a game of cave putt-putt – it was a very tricky course but we had good fun. I guess I shouldn’t really admit this, but Jeff beat me…not by much though.
