Rainy Day Holiday Update!

Well ... Our holiday track record of "it always rains when we go to the beach" is running true to form. Day three at the Sunshine Coast & it's STILL raining. :0)

GB's vehicle needed to spend a day back at the dealer's having a tray tub fitted, so with a little buzz-box courtesy car & most of the day to kill, we splashed off. Hmmm ... So what does one do on a rainy holiday Monday?


Why, one finds a coffee shop, of course. :0) Here's GB's impersonation of a startled possum. Tee! Hee! Hee! And we were at the Ginger Factory at Yandina. When you visit the Ginger Factory you really have to try ...


... Fresh scones with ginger jam & cream ... YUMMO! There are also some fun giftie type shops to browse through ... Though we had to wait for the downpour to back off a bit before making it across the open area between shops. We then headed off to Sunshine Plaza in search of a specialty popcorn shop we'd visited previously.


This was a cute shabby boathouse on the river where we pulled over to consult Siri on the best way to find the plaza. The water level was pretty high ... In fact a few metres further along a local tv news crew was shooting footage of the rising levels. Plaza located, popcorn acquired & it was time to head back to pick up the vehicle ... Via the Patchwork Angel at Forest Glen, of course. :0)


I wasn't TOO naughty! :0) Some yummy dotty spotty fabrics, a really pretty charm pack & a new travel sewing light all follows me home ... That's my story & I'm sticking to it! :0)

So ... The weather may be a bit soggy (we're starting to develop webbed feet! Tee! Hee! Hee!) but we're still enjoying our break. Stay tuned for more holiday adventures. :0) Til next time ...

BEAR HUGS!

CHEERS!
KRIS

I remember going to the ginger factory when I was about 10 - 45 yrs ago! My mouth is watering thinking about that ginger jam!!! Do hope you get some blue skies before your holiday is up, but it seems rain may be on the menu for a few more days up there! Enjoy your break none the less!
