Photography: That weekend in Coolum, QLD

Hi all :).  Been getting things sorted after returning from an amazing national campus leaders summit up at Coolum, QLD.  It was a weekend I will never forget, gleaning wisdom from past decades of campus ministries and catching a vision for the future… more thoughts on that will be added here.

Well before I share a few nature shots from the weekend, a big shout-out needs to be given to the fantastic cooks at Luther Heights Youth Camp!  I’ve been to my fair share of camps over the years as have many of people I attended the summit with and it was unanimous that the kitchen team at Luther Heights made the best camp food that we’ve ever tasted!  Here’s a sample of what they cooked up:

Clockwise: Lasagne, Nachos, Schnitzel, Beef Burger… so good!
Scrumptious Apple Crumble!

If you are after a lovely location with good camp food in Qld, look up Luther Heights!

Alright, so unfortunately for us the weather was not the greatest with 2/3 days looking like this:

foggy and humid… not a nice combination.

But we had a chance to check out a local beach…

very rocky…

Some interesting greenery on the way back to the camp site…

I call them water jewels :)

On our last day, the sun finally came out!

Blue skies at last!

We caught some sun flare…

<3 <3

Saw a boat… (is this called a tug boat?)

Was impressed by the innovation…

no sandy taps… because there are no taps!

And I got distracted by the sky on the drive to the airport…

A masterpiece
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. – Psalm 19:1

Hope the high schoolers are having a great first week back and the uni kids are enjoying the last week of freedom!

Also before I forget, the winner of the 1st blog-o-birthday giveaway is… Choc Chip Uru!! *throws confetti*


Shall be in contact to send out your little thank-you present :) Thanks to everyone else who entered for your ongoing support!

Will be back soon with a foodie post soon ;).
