Where I stayed
There are many shops and cafes along the main street (Hastings St.) but they're all very upscale and pricey. Seriously, does a town of 10,000 people need a Hugo Boss store? I read online that Massimo's has the best gelato in town so I gave the Ferraro Rocher and pistachio flavours a try
There are no grocery stores within walking distance of the hostel so I took the shuttle to Coles and bought some kangaroo fillet (cheapest type of meat in Australia), frozen veggies (I don't want to pay $5 for one red pepper), a head of broccoli (only $2.50 a kg!) and brown rice. $13.50 later, I've got myself 2.5 delicious healthy meals. Fact of the day: Did you know that kangaroo meat is low in fat, a source of Omega-3, and rich in iron and zinc? It's a little gamey but still good!
*NEWSFLASH* After 2 months on the road, I got my first canker sore and a minor runny nose. I'm surprised it's taken me this long since I usually get canker sores after a week of no Mamma Lo's Chinese herbal soup. Good thing I'm armed with Ginseng tea, Emergen-C packets, and Zilactin-B.
I woke up early and took the 8am shuttle to the Main Beach so I could do coastal walk through Noosa National Park. The sun rises quite early (6am) and with temperatures hoving around 27 degrees, I didn't want to be trekking too late in the day. It was another gorgeous day and I was warned that part of the walk passes through Alexandria Bay, a known nudist beach. Question du jour: why are there only greasy out of shape old men on a nudist beach? Where are them hotties?
Anyways, the walk was lovely. I didn't spot any dolphins or koalas but I did enjoy another relaxing day on the beach. Tomorrow, I'm getting picked up in Noosa to go on my 3 day tour of the World Heritage listed Fraser Island, the largest sand island in the world.
