Mrs Pyjamas had said she just wanted to relax on her holiday here. Lounge around by the pool in her bikini and be served drinks by Julio the pool boy and if he wasnt available, BP and I could be
poor substitutes. As much as I was happy to attend to Mrs P's needs of relaxation, alcohol and standing holding an ostrich feather fan to cool her, I thought I should rustle up some entertainment as well. It's not all about laying by the pool when you stay at Chez Sunshine.
One of the nice things to do here, is take a sunset cruise along the river.
It's a cheap and cheerful way to while away an evening. The cruise we usually take, is with the Noosa Ferry company. The cruise lasts around an hour and a half and takes in some of the very pretty sights along the river and Noosa Sound. You are allowed to take drinks and nibbles with you and they supply ice, ice buckets and glasses. That meant instead of carting a truck load of supplies on to the boat we only needed a porter to carry the 14 bottles of wine for the two of us and a weeks supply of dips, crackers and cheese. We were sensible and took our designated driver with us, BP. This was to avert any run ins with the law and put off our imminent jail time for another day, however BP would not double up and take on the porter duties, which meant Shay and I had to carry all the supplies. To save our arms and backs we made sure we demolished the lot so we wouldn't have to carry it home.
As always, we sat at the back. We soon had a nice space to ourselves as our fellow passengers decided it was nicer further up the front and edged slowly away from us. I'm not sure why. Maybe they couldn't hear the nice music or the occasional commentary from the skipper because it was noisy down the back. There was lots of laughter and the occasional snort as somebody choked, by laughing as they sipped a champagne or two or three!
Last night we went to one of my favourite restaurants on the Sunshine Coast, Wahoo Seafood at Peregian Beach. They know me well there, too well, and as soon as they saw I was with Shay we were put in the naughty corner. Unfortunately we didn't take any photos, probably better that we don't have any incriminating evidence. I think I'll be allowed back there again. We had a lovely meal sitting under the stars, no, the naughty corner isn't in the alley out the back, some of the tables are in an open courtyard.
We had our designated driver with us again. Who knew that having children could be so beneficial once they are old enough to drive. I think BP has learnt a lot in the last few days, maybe too much. Sometimes mothers and their friends talk about stuff that kids really don't want to/need to know about. I'm hoping BP hasn't worked out that she could earn a lot of money through bribery.
If you would like to see other ways we have been entertaining ourselves, you can read all about it here, and no, it's not a link to a newspaper or court listings.
