Some weekends are just like that… they are spent best with a book in one hand and a cup of tea in the other. This last one was like that, except that I ended up exploring Dicky Beach around Caloundra at the southern end of the Sunshine Coast.
Ok, “exploring” might be a bit of an overstatement but we did have a look, strolled along the beach and had coffee and yummy gluten-free Macadamia & Raspberry cake at one of the cafes near Dicky Beach.
Dicky Beach has two interesting things… one, there’s this odd-looking shipwreck of the SS Dicky stranded on the beach (and of all things, it’s German-made!), and two, it’s an off-leash area for dogs so it’s sprawling with happy doggies. A bit cute and a bit not-for-me given my dog “phobia”… wouldn’t make for a very relaxing beach time for me… 🙂
Evidence of the doggy beach :)In the carpark at Dicky Beach I found this…
I love these retro VW campervans! This one was all done up with tartan seat covers and a beautifully restored dash, gorgeous. Travelling around Australia in one of these would even relax me, I think. 🙂
And for something different… Found this bench outside the Giggling Goat Emporium (yep, it’s a cafe) in Dicky Beach. My kind of bench. Very cool. And Kusmi Tea… ah, I love Kusmi Tea.
