Noosa Diaries: Day 4- pool, cocktails, steam room and cocktails

Gorgeous day today. Walked to Hastings Street a few minutes away for a little window shopping. Had a drink and a light bite. Love Noosa. Sat on the board walk for a while watching the sea.

There are lots of people on the beach all frolicking happily with not a care in the world.

Bought an ice cream from the gelataria on the corner of the arcade then walked back through a narrow ally to the boardwalk. It’s hot today thankfully. The last few days have been a trifle gloomy weather-wise (which is when we took the pics of the resort). Hastings Street. I remember when there were enormous dunes al along his beach but that is no more. The river was redeveloped but the developer mucked things up and the very next storm took Noosa’s beach forever. What we see now is sand pumped onto the site by the council. Not very glamorous to think the beach you sunbathe on is there by the grace of modern technology. You don’t need any greater advertising for what greed can do to the environment.

We’re feeling like a lazy day by the pool so a slow leisurely walk back to the top of the hill. The resort looks back towards the river which you can see through the palm trees outside our unit. The resort, once beautiful and thriving, is now a bit down-at-heal. Both the restaurant and bar are both closed. None of that matter when you are sitting in the spa with a cocktail in hand. Still, it’s clean and tidy and the units are large and comfy.

Looking down from our balcony to one of the pools whose water is sparling like diamonds. The little spa nearby has its own thatch-roofed cabana . I’ve spent a lot of time there. It’s funny, the hustle of Sydney seems so far behind, I don’t want to go back.

Breakfree Noosa International. A grandiose name for a very quiet place.

  1. What a great place to relax! You should take advantage of the warm weather while you can because I guess you are in your autumn season now, aren’t you? Today I’m finally sitting outside in my courtyard. I have spring fever. Hey, I mentioned you on one of my posts a few days ago, Love That App Store.
