overnight getaway

we have not been home long from a quick overnight stay on the Sunshine Coast.
today being the Show Holiday, gave us the perfect excuse to head up to the in-laws
straight after school yesterday. Mike picked the girls up a bit early as well, which made for extra excitement!

homeleigh house is a shop i always pay a visit to when up the coast.
it is full of beautiful homewares, candles, clothing and jewelry.
i haven't ever bought anything from there, but i accidentally did today ;)

here are my purchases.
we had lunch at Caloundra Coffee Club and this was our view.
of all the Coffee Clubs we have been to, this one offers exceptional service.
(Kace wasn't happy here, because the photo i had taken previous to this one, had cut her face off- being the shortest of our family, and taking it with my iPhone. she was not impressed lol)
and oh my goodness, my 13 year old is now as tall as me!
after a scrummy lunch, we headed to Shelley Beach for some shell collecting.

some cute critters that Em found.

we then drove around to Moffat Beach, and walked from there around to Dicky Beach to
view the SS Dicky.
it is an iron steamboat that ran aground during heavy seas many years ago.
Dicky Beach remains the only recreational beach in the world
that is named after a shipwreck.

love this! someone has woven old rubber thongs through the fence.
long shadows on the sand.
love it.
