Almost summer

We are a couple of days away from summer here in Australia, the perfect time for a day or 2 at the beach. We went north of Brisbane to Noosa, one of my favourite places on earth.

We arrived in the afternoon and the beach looked fabulous. Noosa is protected from most winds, which is one of the things that makes it great. However, it is not protected from an onshore wind, and it was fierce. If you look closely at the photos you can see the white caps.

I passed on an afternoon swim, I’m not much interested in personal sand blasting, but got up really early the next morning and walked to Little Cove, the next beach along from Noosa beach, which was looking calm.

Little Cove is tiny and the sun had not quite reached there as I arrived.

It is a gorgeous secluded spot.

There were a couple of parrots on the beach, trying to pass themselves off as seagulls.

People were already swimming as I walked back. You must be up seriously early to be first at the beach here.

I grew up at the beach and I love it. There will be more summer days at the beach.


  1. We had so many holidays there and particularly loved Little Cove when my son was at school

    • I have been going there for more than 40 years. I love it, especially Little Cove.

  2. Enjoy the beach and the sunshine. Here we are having rain, and more rain….

    • I think it is still raining in Bagni di Lucca too. I wish it would rain here!

  3. I grew up in Brisbane – miss Noosa and the Sunshine Coast 😊 Enjoy the sun and beach.

    • I grew up on the Gold Coast, an excellent place to be a child and a teenager. I loved it. I still love the beach, but I enjoy living in Brisbane.

  4. Parrots on the beach…I never would have guessed. It looks like a lovely spot to relax.

    • Little Cove is heavenly. I hope to visit again before I head back to Italy.
