A Day at Noosa Beach
Saturday 26th February 2011 – Noosa, Australia
After the fun-filled day of yesterday, visiting the great Australia Zoo, I was in need of a relaxing day today, so I decided to take it easy and to treat myself to a day at the beach. The great thing about travelling is that you only need do what ever you feel like doing, not what you are suppose to be doing. This is why the travelling life is for me.
It was another hot day, just perfect for sitting on the beach. Here I spent most of the day, in and out of the water, tanning up then cooling off. There were a lot of other people about today being a weekend, and the perfectly bronzed bodies were here, there and everywhere. To live near a beach like this would be my idea of heaven, and I envied those living this dream. I could very easily get used to this.
It was a great day for catching the waves, and the art of body surfing was something I could now say that I have mastered. I went back and forth on wave after wave, enjoying it immensely and grinning like a little kid. I was thinking that this would be the perfect place to learn how to surf properly, and I wondered about booking a lesson whilst here.
After successfully topping up my tan, I decided to call it a day and walked back to the hostel with a cool ice drink in my hand. It didn’t stay ice for long but it was cool enough to ease my walk back. Once back at the hostel, I just relaxed with the other guys and saw out the remainder of the afternoon. In the evening, myself and a few of the guys/girls went to a bar in town for a few drinks. We wanted to watch the English football that was due to be shown here later, but a 1am kick off time did not appeal to any of us. We had a laugh then came back to the comfort of our hostel.
I cherish relaxing days like this almost as much as I cherish the busy days, but in a different way. I feel there has to be a balance between the two, otherwise enjoyment levels tend to drop in my opinion. Too much racing about stops you really seeing things, whereas too much sitting about drains your motivation. I feel I have a healthy balance currently, and with each passing day here in Noosa, I feel more and more like I have found my ideal place.
