party {of a different kind} | GIRL'S WEEKEND AT COOLUM

Each year, two of my girlfriends and I spend two or three nights away to catch up.  We met in high school in Grade 11 when I returned from the US. We all then went to the same University and have continued our friendship ever since.

We arrived on Friday night to a brand new apartment at the White Shells Resort at Marcoola beach.  Our apartment has its own plunge pool and because the resort is new, we pretty much had the entire place to ourselves!

Friday was spent in the pools, re-watching Season 1 of Glee, reading and drooling over recipes that we will probably never make and eating gourmet chocolate.  On Saturday night we went to the Spirit House Restaurant.  You can wait months to get a reservation here and for good reason.  It is just so pretty a location in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast and the food is amazing and well worth the money.  More swimming today before our late check at 4pm!!  

Oh and then there's the issue of finishing off all of that wine and food that we can't possibly take home with us.  Shouldn't be too much of a problem I don't think!

These weekends away are always an excuse to eat well, drink lots of bubbles and laugh often and this one was no exception. 

Champagne Breakfast - of course!

Lap Pool and Spas overlooking Mt. Coolum.
