For our extended week-end at The Cove, Noosa, we decided to make for Noosaville and partake of a leisurely lunch before booking in.
So we parked in the Noosaville strip and wandered up and down Gympie Terrace looking for a suitable place to lunch. How it has advanced and become quite commercialised over the intervening years??!!!
There's oodles of great place to eat but John espied a place doing a special on prawns and avocado and so I ordered whiting a chips and salad and we shared. it was just lovely. This place was called Gracies but we had looked at Maisie's Seafood named after my Aunty Maisie, I'm sure.
There was absolutely everything there. You could have hired anything - boat, kayak, jet-ski etc. From here it was a five minute drive to The Cove. I should explain the The Cove is on the hill over looking the ocean up the hill from Hastings Street towards the National Park.
We were greeted very courteously and directed to our apartment. It has everything that the little heart desires. The patio overlooks the pool and has a BBQ on the patio as well as a dining setting for four. We can NOT see the ocean only the higher ones manage to do that but if you walk across the zebra crossing you are at the steps to the beach below.
The bedroom is well appointed as is the en-suite attached. Jo and June are coming up tomorrow to join us and they will have the twin -bedded second bedroom. They will be able to use the main bathroom and shower. It is all beautifully tiled from top to bottom.
After we had settled in, we decided to make sure we could feed ourselves for brekkie and lunch. Henceforth we set off to the shops up over the Reef Hotel Hill and down to Noosa Junction. Shops! Shops! Shops! We only bought food and a $5 hat for John to lose in the surf tomorrow. We have no extra money, as we have committed oueselves for all the travelling in store this year. For evening meal there is a super-duper delivery service. There's quite a range of food available and you could use it as room service if you so desired. There is Chinese, Thai, Pizza, Turkish, American Style, Indian, Seafood and so on.
