Second Over 70s National Championships - Sunshine Coast - Mooloolaba

Mooloolaba is an ideal place for a holiday in September. Beautiful weather, great views, places to walk and explore, good selection of restaurants - what more could you want?
 Views from our apartment balcony - the beach and the marina.
The Saturday morning was a rest day so I went for a walk along the beach towards Alexandra Headland.
The tide was out so it was possible to walk across the rocks at the end of the Mooloolaba Beach and around the headland.
In the 1950s and early 1960s people used to camp on the headland. Now it is parkland. There are a number of caravan parks in the area for campers.
 The beach at Alexandra Headland was busy as there was a surf carnival as well as normal swimming activities.
There were also people just out for a surf or a swim.
I then returned along the foreshore to Mooloolaba.
Later that morning Robin and I went for a walk along the foreshore and encountered some local residents.
This one posed for a photo. We also saw a sea eagle soaring overhead and a bush turkey running down the path.
A shadow covered the path as a paraglider passed over us.
In the evening we had dinner at Via Italia another good Italian restaurant. We shared Roasted garlic loaf and then had Gamberi Zafferona (safron spaghetti with Mooloolaba prawns) and Peposa Gnocchi (gnocchi with slow roasted beef cheek). Delicious meal served by Harriet.
