We’re in the middle of school holidays here in QLD so we have shipped the kids off to my brothers where they are going skiing for a few days down south.

With the kids off our hands Nat & I decided to head to glorious Noosa. The weather is perfect – about 20 degrees Celsius – with not a cloud in the sky. We picked a luxury hotel right on the beach and our suite has 3 bedrooms, 2 balconies and a spa on the roof top balcony.

Our days are filled with a sleep in, a long breakfast, spot of shopping down fabulous Hastings Street, lite lunch, reading on the beach then dinner at a fabulous restaurant. Last night we dined with friends at a ‘top 20’ restaurant in Australia called ‘Wasabi’ and tonight with my business partner and his wife at Sails – right on the beach.

The shops are quiet and for the first time in years there are ‘for lease’ signs on the windows on Hastings Street. One shop keep told me that the region has been hit hard this year because of 3 factors.

1) Japanese Tsunami

2) New Zealand earthquakes

3) Brisbane floods

The weather is perfect this time of year – come visit Noosa. The region needs an economic boost – we’re doing our bit at least!
