This drive is one of my favourite moments in a day - on the left the houses drop away to become the Noosa National Park with twisting Banksia and She Oaks - mixing with a plethora of other tropical beach plants ......... as you round the corners you catch a glimpse of what is to be the most welcoming swim in warm tropical blue waters - a little aqua tips the edges - then the car and/or the bike (as the cyclists peddle every weekend) tears you away until the next rise - follow the white line is a memory - a perfect day for memories given the rain we are experiencing!
