Captivated at Coolum

I am the type of person who loves the cold everything from winter to overcast weather and everything in between and I often find myself wishing that I lived in cold England rather than hot and humid Australia. However, it is days like this when I think otherwise. The cold is lovely but there is nothing better than feeling the sun on your skin and sand between your toes. I recently visited Coolum beach with my family and took a few snaps to share with you all. 

I am looking into studying overseas in the UK and after spending this day in the sun ( so much so that my back was left bright red and burnt) I wonder if I will find it as easy. Enjoy. 

Coolum is my favourite beach in Queensland as it doesn't have that horrible commercialised feel, not packed with tourists or sky rises. I used to come here once a year with my best friend and coming back made me very nostalgic seeing all of the places we adventured and ran a muck. I can remember almost everyday we would swim or hunt for little crabs or pippies or attempt to tan without burning to a crisp. If not doing these things we would always go to our favourite place Gelato Mio even if we weren't hungry. I'm not sure if its the taste or the memories that make me love this Gelato so much, probably a combination of both. 

Searching through rock pools has always been one of my favourite things to do. Growing up camping I was a 'wild' child and would run ramped searching for any little creature I could find. Me and Mum always woke up early to scan the beach for the biggest shells and it has long since become something we always do.

If only the UK was this sunny right? How did you spend the weekend?
