Mooloolaba Mornings

The sun is waking even earlier than last week – about a minute earlier a day. By the end of this week, sunrise will be 5.45am.

Enjoy it while I can, I say!

Oh, and there were whales out there this morning. Yes, really! Too far out, of course, for photos, but exciting nevertheless.

This truly is a fabulous place to be…


Mooloolaba Mornings

If the spectacular weather of the last few days hasn’t been enough of a hint that Spring is absolutely here, then the temperature at 6am this morning should have been a giveaway – spoiler alert, no jacket required.

The Sun is in on the action too – rising a full 7 minutes earlier than this time last week. Yep, folks, the days are getting longer.

Anyways, here are some photos from the last few mornings.

You’re welcome.

and one sunset…of sorts…just because.

Mooloolaba Mornings


Well, sunrise is just after 6am these days – so photos of it will be few and far between for the next few months.

Yesterday morning a tall ship was anchored off the beach. It was quickly followed by P&O’s Pacific Explorer. I know some locals aren’t ecstatic about the cruise ships, but they do bring a lot of business to the region. There are also always plenty of people down around the foreshore checking them out.

Another three are due this year, and eleven cruise ships are scheduled to stop in at Mooloolaba in 2018.

I watched it come in, and I watched it sail out into the sunset…ok, well not into the sunset, but you get the idea.

This morning I was up and about much earlier – and was rewarded with a sunrise…

and a paddle.

Mornings don’t get much better than this



Mooloolaba Mornings

It seems as though each day sunrise is getting just that little bit earlier. Where only a few weeks ago I could sleep in until 6am and still make it down to the beach in time to see that golden orb peek over the horizon, these days I’m having to set the alarm half an hour earlier to be guaranteed of seeing the actual sunrise after a walk over the headland.

This morning the moon was still up when I left home, and by the time I pulled up the sky was full of that distant glow, but it wasn’t until I reached Alex Surf Club that the sun came up in all it’s glory.

Mooloolaba Mornings

Good morning.

I have to admit to feeling a tad sore in the muscles today – I took myself off to No Lights, No Lycra last night and danced my little heart out in the dark. I’ll write more about it next week, but it’s a great workout, and awesome fun. The Alex hill did, however, seem a tad longer this morning as a result.

Anyways, to the sunrise. The morning started cloudy, but by the time we got around to Alex, it had cleared…and back in Mooloolaba for coffee it was a combo – with some seriously interesting clouds.

Have a great Friday.
