Family vacation to Sunshine Coast

It was about time the Mushers took a beach vacation with my family. It was summer in Australia so we headed down to Sunshine Coast, Queensland. My husband took had ticket discounts from a travel agency that had partnered with the company he worked for. They offered 10% off on our ticket by Air Newzealand. We had to source another airline for the return ticket as the offer was only valid for the one way ticket. The day arrived and we headed to the airport vacay ready. We reached Sunshine Coast after a ten hour flight. After sleeping for most of the day we finally ended up taking strolls on the several beaches in the area and trying out new food. This is exactly what I needed basking under the sun in the Sunshine Coast beaches was therapy.
