Today Ann and I enjoyed catching up with our friends Neville and Mary. We hadn’t seen them for some time and it turned out that they were staying in Mooloolaba but were flying home on Friday.
We arranged to pick them up at their apartment in Mooloolaba and then drove up to visit Eumundi Markets for a walk, coffee, chat, and lunch.
After a thorough circuit of the market and take-away coffees we ended up at the Lionheart Hotel for lunch. The hotel is currently undergoing major renovations using a medieval castle theme in what is basically an old Queenslander hotel. It’s a bit of a strange combination but it seems to work. One thing that struck us today was that the temperature was in the mid-twenties but they had a fire going in the dining room! Needless to say we didn’t sit near it. The meal was good, the company was great and it was a great environment in which to catch up.
We then moved on to Yandina to check out the Ginger Factory and the Nutworks factory opposite. Mid-afternoon, the weather cooled down a bit and after more nice hot coffees we headed back to Mooloolaba and Forest Glen.
What a great way to catch up with old friends!
