After our hike, otherwise known as the suicidal death-march up Mount Ngungun last Saturday (see post here), Rhett and I made the spontaneous decision to spend the night in Noosa, up on the Sunshine Coast.
Unfortunately, due to our lack of planning, we arrived on a weekend where half the roads were blocked off in prep for an Ultraman Marathon event (don’t ask, literally no idea). And upon our arrival we were greeted by large crowds, color-coordinating pelotons and an outrageous amount of lycra. Which was not great, considering Rhett and I had plans to watch the sun rise that following morning on Noosa Beach and our main access point had subsequently been blocked off.
So later that night, Rhett and I scoured over google maps in search of another location for the next morning. And that’s when we stumbled across the stunning and secluded Alexandria Bay.
As you can see, Alexandria Bay was spectacular with its eastern-facing perspective. The perfect place to watch a sun rise.
But before anybody goes waddling off to see this wondrous sight for themselves, I should warn that Alexandria Bay is only accessible via Sunshine Beach and the journey from point A to point B was neither enjoyable nor was it easy. Unbeknownst to Rhett and I, at 5-bloody-am, we found ourselves climbing up 150 stairs (in my mind there had to be a thousand more!) and navigating ambiguous trails that were shrouded in overgrown shrubbery and loose rocks. Needless to say, I was not impressed.
Anyway. All complaining aside. The view was really quite breath-taking and after I had finished hyperventilating, Rhett and I spent the remainder of the morning enjoying the views and taking happy snaps. For this photo shoot, I wore an oldie-but-a-goodie Arnhem classic. Unfortunately, it’s no longer available but I believe it’s called the ‘white suga maxi’ and it’s quite honestly one of my favourite dresses. Simple, soft and feminine.
That’s it from me today. As always, I hope you guys enjoyed this post and until we speak again next time, stay safe!
Love Linda, xo
