Today was a perfect winter’s day here in Noosaville. Cool and brisk early this morning with a cloudless sky all day. It was just magic. The river was like glass this morning.
As it was so lovely I caught the Noosa Ferry from Noosaville to Tewantin which took about 15 minutes. On the way the ferry driver actually pulled in close to the bank so we could take photos of a group of pelicans so I managed to snag this photo as we were cruising past.
Tewantin is the departure point for access to the famous North Shore beach drive which goes all the way to Rainbow Beach and Fraser Island.
This statue is a tribute to the diggers during the first and second world wars and the Boer War and it’s situated outside the Tewantin RSL.
The perfect weather today made for great photos and here’s a few of the Tewantin area near the river.
Plus a beautiful old fig tree in the park…
Look at those roots…I wonder how old this tree is?
There are so many gorgeous gift shops throughout the Sunshine Coast and Tewantin is no exception…this chocolate shop had so many lovely bits and pieces in it.
On the way back to Noosaville I couldn’t resist taking this photo from the top of the ferry. Beautiful blue sky and river.
So that was my morning. During the afternoon, you guessed it, I grabbed my knitting and chair and wandered down to the river front. I also took some bread with me and fed these seagulls and they ate every crumb!
I managed to get a couple of photos of the seagulls flapping around the bread.
Today’s knitting was a UFO I brought with me. I started this shawl in March and would really like to finish it. Each row increases by two stitches so consequently it takes longer to knit each row. I’ve only got a few rows left.
And of course, I sat under the same tree which will always be known as my ‘knitting tree’!
And to finish off…here’s tonight’s sunset picture.
Until next time…from beautiful Noosaville.
