Mission Beach is only a three-hour drive away and we always love to stay at one particular resort right on the beach front. The Castaways Resort has been a favoured destination of ours for well over ten years now, and it never fails to disappoint. Luckily it came through Tropical Cyclone Yasi very well despite the fact that it was located within the very destructive centre of the cyclone when it made landfall.
The views from our room over the coconut fringed sandy beach right in front of the resort are just spectacular whether it be early morning, midday or evening. The sound of the ocean waves splashing onto the beach and the breezes blowing through the palm fronds is just instantly calming and relaxing. If only the weekend could have gone on and on! Unfortunately I'm about to head off now to visit my beautiful grandchildren, my son and daughter-in-law! Ah, the sacrifices we have to make!
