Cotton Tree CP for 9 weeks

Cotton Tree CP is probably the best CP in Qld for location.  Right on the river with north 
facing beach so there's sun all day.  Then on the east side is the mouth of the river and the surf beach.  Across the road is a small shopping centre with most what you need and the clubs, Maroochy surf club, the Bowling club or RSL just up the road.  On the other side, up stream along the river, is a lovely park with walking and bike paths to the Plaza shopping centre for the serious shopping.  The bike paths extend for miles north to Coolum and south to Alex Headland and Mooloolaba along the coast.

I booked into Cotton Tree Caravan Park for a week at a time but will stay until the Olympics start.

Whilst here this time:
Climbed Mt Coolum usually every week.
Walking and bike riding the coastal bike paths.
Entertaining Brad and Kelly in August for 7 days
Started looking at an investment property here.

Mary and co were going to the Paralympics and I started a blog for them to keep in touch and to record the event.

Friday, 24 August, after nine weeks here am heading off to Pomona.  Just a short drive 50km to Pomona showgrounds, nice. Rode around town and to the base of Mt Cooroora. Too late and too hot to climb the mountain today but will do it first thing in the morning then on to Tin Can Bay.
