Our enchanting weekend at Mt Tamborine...

First stop was a picnic at Canungra Winery.

Looking at the family of turtles.

Then we did the surprisingly easy drive from Canungra to Mt Tamborine, 
to check into our beautiful cottage for the weekend.

The host cooked a very lovely coffee and hazelnut cake for the birthday boy.

A bush walk to the falls.

We all had so much fun hanging out with the farms three Alpacas. 

The black one with lovely big eyes and long black eyelashes was called Jamie Packer. Evie fell in love with Jamie and even cried in the car on the way home, 'I miss Jamie'.

The host taught us that if you at the fence with your back to the Alpacas,
they will come over and gently sniff you.
This is how you say hello to them.

The beautiful Guineafowl gave us hours of entertainment. Their polka dot feathers are beautiful. 
This colour is called Lavender and the other shade was called Pearl.

The outdoor fire place all set up for us was a hit. 
We toasted marshmallows and burnt things!

As far as farm cottages go, this was so comfortable and stylish.

Bye bye Jamie.

The amazing view from the farm.

A quick stop before the drive home.

Welcome to 2016 - our new year holiday

We had a wonderful week away at Noosaville to get refreshed and ready for the year ahead.

I loved admiring the garden and getting ideas for our house.

Coolum Aqua Park

Hawaiian style shaved ice from the Eumundi Markets 

Sunglasses purchase at the markets

Retro bus shelters

First time at the Bellingham Maze

One of my fave things to do is visiting prize homes. This awesome one was at Buderum.

The Ginger Train

Perigian Beach was divine.

We loved hiring a boat and exploring Noosa River.

Where Noosa River meets the beach. It was so popular!
