Getting away.

Well, the house has been on the market for a couple of months now, and it kind of starts getting you down at times, so we decided to get away from the place for a week, and drove up to the Sunshine Coast.

We stayed at Noosaville, awesome being in the RACQ and getting cheap deals, as well as it being mid winter!!

Anyway, exploring Noosa Headland was just divine, such lovely rainforest and rock formations...

Not sure what kind of tree this was, but it was amazing!!

Marley making sure we go the right way (actually a few seconds before he was licking the sign, I think the smile means it tasted good haha)

The boys loved the rocky beach, they would have stayed there for hours throwing stones...

It was just a really lovely place to spend time...

We eventually found some sand for the kids to muck around on.

Of course we had to pay a visit to Underwater world while we were up there, it was pretty good actually, they had seals, saw-toothed sharks, a crocodile, heaps of stingrays, other assorted sharks, amazing seahorses, huge crabs, frogs, turtles, otters, eels, so much to look at!

Of course my camera ran out of battery at the start, but I did manage to get some awesome pics of these Japanese Giant Spider Crabs, someone in my family is especially fond of crabs...

The best thing about it all is that while we were away, we had a great offer on the house, and after much negotiating on the phone, we came home to sign a contract...

Amazing what some time away can achieve...

Now it's just 3 weeks of nail biting to see if the contract sticks. Hmmmm.... where can we go to 'get away'?
