Back to Noosa - QLD

Having met up with Mark again in Brisbane, it was great to travel north and introduce him to one family that felt like my second family whilst in Australia - Jana, David and Hannah, in Doonan, Noosa.
Bella was still tottering round

Oh, and Sasha, my wheezing purring friend was there for cat cuddles

Having spent three weeks here in July helping to regenerate the rainforest patch of paradise, it was so good to see the changes spring had brought.
The pond was flourishing with beautiful purple lilies

The orange Lilies were in flower

this Moreton Bay Fig tree looked great in the sunshine

and all the other little details such as this orange fungus

and interesting pattern of this palm trunk

even the birds were growing in number

no doubt they'll be plenty more when the home built bird boxes were all up

and my little Bangalow Palms were going strong

and the resident Kangaroos came to say hello

After downing tools to watch the Melbourne Cup - an the first ever female jockey winner, we headed in to Noosa to show Emma around (the current workawayer, from Colchester)
First stop was the ice cream shop:
Nitrogenie
Fairy_Floss.jpg
An ice cream shop that makes the worlds best ice cream the same way the great chefs make it in the restaurants - using liquid nitrogen.
It freezes almost too quickly for ice crystals to form resulting in creamy ice cream.
Using only real food ingredients, like actual creamy milk and actual eggs. And actual real food that we add to create actual incredible flavours. The flavours you see here taste exactly like the real thing because they are the real thing. It's like a magic wish from an ice cream genie.

The town was full of dressed up locals enjoying the atmosphere of watching the Melbourne Cup, quite the opposite to this postcard that made me smile

With an un-missable stop at Main Beach

I couldn't go without a stop at my favourite place The Boat House
