Some years ago I had worked briefly with a girl who had bought a house at
Coolum Beach saying that it was one of the last seaside areas yet to be
developed. We soon had to agree with her - it is still lacking the high
rise apartment blocks that are spreading all along the coast to the south
and at Noosa in the north.
We initially drove along the hilltop but didn't stop at the lookout as the
guests were just arriving for a wedding. Instead we made our way back down
to the foreshore parking and went wading in the beach. The lifeguards were
busy keeping an eye on the swimmers as this beach is not flat like Cotton
Tree but had good sized waves rolling in. There were heaps of people about
making the most of the lovely weather.
