This weekend I had the chance to relax in an absolutely beautiful part of the country. A friend and I went up to Maleny for the night and we stopped in at the Maleny Cheese Factory for lunch and bought ourselves a cheese platter to go with our bottle of sparkling wine. We sat on the banks of the Obi Obi Creek and gorged ourselves silly on wine, cheese, fruit and crackers. It was much needed pure bliss.
We then chatted away while watching the sun set with a cup of tea on the balcony at the Maleny Hotel, had a lovely dinner in the restaurant there, and then spent the night reading our books in bed until we couldn't keep our eyes open any more and finally fell asleep in the very comfy beds.
The next day we went for a walk in town and had a bacon and egg roll and a chai latte for breakfast at one of the local cafes and browsed all the local shops. Afterwards we hopped in the car for a short drive and found Gardners Falls where we sat and listened to nature doing it's thing while finishing off our cheese platters.
It was so nice to relax for the weekend with a good mate, a good book and good food and enjoy nature at it's finest, while recharging my mind, body and soul.
