I am not a pancake person and rarely eat them so it was purely for sentimental reasons that I ordered one knowing that my son would eat most of it anyway. He wanted the Banana Pancake with Chocolate Cranberry Sauce which I admit was quite delicious and if anyone is visiting Moffat Beach at any time then do try the pancakes at Cafe by the Beach.
After all that rich food a walk along the beach was in order....
...and the surf was just great for surfboard riders...
The beach is lined with Norfolk Pines and is quite picturesque. There are so many beautiful beaches in Caloundra and also as you make your way up the Sunshine Coast. We are very blessed indeed.
Then it was time to fill up the little Getz for the journey home. For SE Queensland readers, the petrol was 138.9cents a litre by the way. My little car only used up just over 1/4 tank of petrol on the three hour journey to the coast. Not bad eh?
After that it was time to pack and then have our last walk along the Boardwalk. All in all it was a restful holiday despite the fact that I walked more than I have since the last time we visited the beach. As Barb said in her comment on a previous post, it seems natural to walk a lot more at the beach than it is at home and it is much more enjoyable I guess to breathe in the sea air and watch the ebbs and flows of the ocean.
There was a lovely sunset and I wanted to take some nice photos but I didn't have my glasses on and fiddled with the camera settings and changed something and the sunset photos I took ended up looking like an atomic bomb had gone off in the west over the Glasshouse Mountains. :-) So they will all be deleted....when I can find my glasses of course!
It will be 'back to normal' after tomorrow and I will need a couple of days to prepare for our Simple Living Toowoomba's 'Frugal DIY Christmas Ideas Workshop' this coming Saturday. If you live in the region you are most welcome to come along and join us. It will be our last workshop of the year and it promises to be a really enjoyable morning.
