Would You Be My Valentine?

This past Valentine's Day weekend, Michael and I took a much needed weekend away on the coast.  I was feeling isolated and Michael was working a lot, so we decided on an impromptu trip to Yeppoon, just the two of us to relax and do was so good!  We stayed at an incredible resort with a huge pool that was situated right on the coast reaching to the Southern tip of the Great Barrier Reef.  When we weren't hanging out at the pool we were at the beach so we both could get our fix of the salt water and air.  It was refreshing to say the least.  Here are a few of the highlights from the weekend.

We were welcomed to our suite with a cheese plate and champagne.  Yup, I'm a lucky gal.

The beach that kinda of reminded me of the Atlantic Ocean, minus the mountainous islands in the background.

We went into town for a sushi lunch, something we can not get in our little country town.

I'm posing in front of a huge wind chime erected to celebrate Captain Cook's discovery.

The gazebo we sat at while enjoying some beer and as Michael would say, "watching the world go by".

Our view from the gazebo.

Pure enjoyment!

We went for a walk at the resort and ended up at a lookout of horses, mountains and water...doesn't get much better than that!

There were kangaroos that would feed near the swing set that we could see from our balcony.  I still get excited every time that I see kangaroos.

Dress up dinner on our last night there.
