When something is a passion, you do it no matter what – nothing gets in your way. You want to make it happen and you just do it – moving things, changing this, compromising, and making sacrifices. This is what being passionate is all about.
I recently had decided to travel up the coast to a place called Noosa, and my partner and I were going to go jet skiing. As the day approached the weather was getting worse and worse. The day of arrived and it was very cloudy and on and off rainy, without it looking like it was going to clear.
There was an option to just cancel and not go, or go and jet ski, or go and explore without jet skiing.
It had been over 10 years since I’d been to Noosa and I really wanted to go. So, we ended up going anyway (with a distant hope that the weather would miraculously improve by the time we arrived). This is what we encountered upon arrival:
Not exactly the best weather to go jet skiing in. So, we postponed the jet skiing itself, and decided to still explore the area. We found out that weather also does not deter the swimmers, surfers and the boat racers! Here is a boat race that was riding the larger than usual waves:
The beach area was just as I remembered, and beyond the main boardwalk was a forest walk that took you to a bigger beach. The boardwalk is lined with accommodation and a few restaurants.
The real gem though was going for a walk in the Noosa headland. That is something I’d never done before, and it was lovely. There are a few different walks to choose from, but we chose the Ocean Walk, which, as the name suggests, runs right along the water, with great views of the ocean, and entrances to semi-secluded beaches. Here is a link to a map of the walks you can take.
If you live in the area, or you’re going to be in the area, I recommend a visit to Noosa Headland – for a walk, or perhaps a skinny dip…
