Our lovely hosts, Debbie and Keven, are very inspirational. They eat so healthily and I have some good ideas to take away with me.
This is a typical breakfast which is super healthy and tastes fantastic. Stir fried vegetables with grilled fish. This fish is ‘Sweet Lips’ which is a Reef fish. It was very firm and had a delicious flavour. We ate outside in the sunshine. What a wonderful start to the day.Harvey enjoyed playing Keven’s Kaleidoscope Challenge puzzle game.We all enjoyed a day with Keven today. Unfortunately Debbie had to work. We headed off to Noosa which is a well known and rather up market beach resort. We began at the National Park so we could do a bush walk. There was a bush fire at Noosa North Shore. It looked rather alarming but it was all gone by the time we returned 4 hours later. This is a Strangler Fig. A seed os dropped high up in a tree by a bird. The seed germinates and sends roots down to the ground and eventually grows completely over the host tree which dies. Many of the trees are incredibly tall so they can poke out above the canopy. It was a very pleasant 1.4 km walk from the National Park to Noosa town. Yet another stunning Australian beach. We had a good lunch in a restaurant overlooking the beach but none of us can remember what it was called! I can remember what we ate though – a Wagyu burger with chips. We had a good potter in town. There were many smart shops to go and look around but none of us bought anything. It was enjoyable just strolling around. On Saturday we were up and out before 7am to get to the Kawana Market. This is a weekly market held in the grounds of a school. Debbie goes each week and we enjoyed going with her this morning.
I have market envy. There were so many local producers, many of whom were organic. I would love to have access to a market like this each week. The basket on the left contain something called ‘Elk’ which I have never heard of. I had a coffee and Harvey found a dairy free chocolate fudge cake which he enjoyed every morsel of.I then succumbed to a slice of carrot cake which was excellent.
We bought a soy candle which has less toxins than standard candles.There was a huge juicing and smoothie stand. I was asking about their juicers as I want to buy one but I don’t think I will be going for the one that cost AUD 4,000.
I would like to try these.
Thank you both for a truly wonderful holiday.
