Last weekend my friends and I decided to pay a visit to another friend of ours who’s not long been living up at the Sunshine Coast. After leaving a rather wet morning in Brisbane, we drove on to Alexandra Headland to clear skies and gorgeous sunshine – this special part of Australia living up to it’s name.
We stopped for lunch by the beach, with some yummy burgers, fish and chips then took the dogs down to the sand and watched them make the most of it!
Known to the locals as ‘Alex’, this beautiful spot is situated along the Sunshine Strip (between Mooloolaba and Maroochydore). It’s incredibly laid back, and is a popular spot for surfers, offering some of the best surf along the Queensland coast just off it’s rocky headland (which also has spectacular views out to Mount Coolum).
Cody (not pictured) must have lived on the beach in a past life – she didn’t sit/stand still once, fetching various sticks time and time again, splashing out into the water, running about with a huge grin on her face!
Shadow is still getting used to the surf and sand – and she’s not much of a fan. She stuck to the sand that was it’s driest, and as far back from the water as she could get.
Despite the cool wind (expected in winter) and the rain that moved in later that afternoon, for the most part the weather really turned it on for our short visit!
