Gotta Love A Long Weekend

This past weekend was a long weekend here in Australia and we decided to take advantage of it by heading to the Sunshine Coast for a few days.  The weekend started off rough with our car breaking down on the side of highway just outside of Caloundra.  We hired a car for the weekend and despite the rain and wind decided to make the most of the weekend.  We visited a couple of markets, the strawberry farm, ginger factory and of course the Eumundi pub.  I also managed to get a bit of reading down.  I finished 1 book, devoured a second and started a third.  A good start to the months reading!

Because of the car dramas we ended up staying an extra night and only got home today.  It was a bit of a bitter end to the weekend because we found out the car is going to be quite expensive to fix. Luckily Corey has a friend who is a mechanic who is going to help us out and hopefully we will be able to save a few dollars.  Thank god for good friends willing to help out!


  1. Sorry to hear about the car, but it looks like it was a fun weekend nevertheless!

  2. Lovely photos Kat! Sucks about the car troubles though. :( I hope it didn't put too much of a damper on your weekend. Yay for getting ahead on the reading! :)
