Friday My Town Shoot out - My Favourite Place to...

Thank you to Cindy for this weeks theme... My Favourite Place To...
I have many favourite places, to do different things depending on the time of year or weather.

My favourite place to... holiday is at home in Australia - especially the Sunshine Coast, around Noosa. Lots of amazing wildlife.


A lazy Koala enjoying a midday snooze.
Let's be honest, it was an all day kind of snooze.



Birds Eye View

Noosa National Park - A great place to... walk with my sisters.

Back home in New Zealand, my favourite place to... spend summer and walk along the beach.

And finally, could this be my favourite place to ...


Headstone (Bay of Islands)
Don't be alarmed that I feel this is where I am headed. I now have a cold as well as my sore arm, but I'm staying with my daughter and being nursed! So now I am ordered back to bed, which happens to be my favourite place right now.

  1. Ohhh, please do take care of yourself, and feel better soon. I do love your island=ish pictures, and they make me wish I lived even closer to the coast than I already do. We have few sand beaches here, so I am jealous. AND you got a picture of a koala, which I love.

  4. I only know Western Australia from Shark Bay to Margaret River - relatives in Perth. One day I really must see the East.

    Please get well quickly. It's good that you are being looked after!

  7. Koala is a great shot, especially to see one NOT in a zoo. It looks like such a beautiful place to be. Hope you feel better soon!

  8. Pauline - I love all these pictures but I especially love the Koala. Although I am really not an ocean person I love to see pictures of it. You take care of yourself and get well soon.

  13. You lucky gal, you got the beach all to yourself.

    Now wrap warm and have plenty of rest. It's all this sometimes hot, some times cold weather that is causing us to get sick.

  20. I am relaxing today from arriving home after three weeks of travel, so the sofa is now my favorite place to relax! Love the lamb in the last photo that thinks it is a dog :)

    Also my friend in VA loved the idea of lazy koala bears in trees...nice to see one from your point of view...
