My best place, Noosa.

Noosa is a small beach town in the Sunshine Coast region of South East Queensland, Australia.

Talking of Noosa, almost all people think of Noosa Heads. Noosa Heads is a popular spot for tourists with the stunning beach, luxury hotels, nice restaurants and shops.

Noosaville is 5 minutes drive from Noosa Heads. I’ve been staying by the Noosa River in this area. Although there are some restaurants and holiday apartments by the riverside, mainly locals live here. It’s a really calm and peaceful place.

I’m a visitor here but I’m not a visitor because I rarely go to the beach, eat out, and go for shopping as visitors usually do.

I go to yoga studio and do yoga with locals. I have a coffee latte at my favorite cafe and chat with staff and local customers. I get vegetables, fruits, and others at a supermarket and cook by myself. I go for a walk by the riverside.

The lifestyle here is not exciting like a city’s one but because of without noise, I feel everyday is fresh, I’m impressed with various things even if it’s a very tiny thing, and best of all my mind feels free.

Noosa makes me come back here anytime.


The Universe makes the Spring Tide.

About 9:30pm, last night. (Noosa, QLD, Australia)

I went for a walk by the Noosa River. It was a full moon night and I could see the spring tide. Not exactly, I should say I could feel the spring tide.

The spring tide is when the difference between high tide and low tide becomes the biggest and it happens at new moon and full moon.

It was a breezy night and the flowing river made a cozy sound. The water level was higher than usual, the beach got narrow and most of the rocks along the bank were covered with seawater. It was a completely different view.

The spring tide results from the gravitation of the moon and the sun on the earth and the centrifugal force of the earth.

It might be just the spring tide but when I think of this magnificent phenomenon of the universe, I can’t stop feeling human beings are very tiny and the universe makes a deep impression on me.


The effect of Full Moon for the river.

It’s a beautiful full moon tonight.

One local man told me an interesting thing which happens at the Noosa River at full moon. The Noosa River is situated at Noosa, QLD, Australia and it enters the Pacific Ocean.

The difference between high tide and low tide becomes the biggest at full moon.(It also happens at new moon.) It’s called the spring tide.

During high tide in the spring tide, a large amount of seawater flows into the Noosa River. Seawater pushes freshwater upstream and the river becomes full of seawater. At low tide, seawater takes sediment together to the sea and then the river gets clean and clear.

I’m not sure the detail of this natural process. But I’m sure the great Mother Nature alway shows us her natural wisdom.


The great Mother Nature at the Noosa River.

At The Noosa River.(Noosaville, QLD, Australia)

We can enjoy various things by this riverside. Sunbathing, swimming, fishing, canoeing, stand up paddle boarding, BBQ, etc…

“There are sharks in this river.” Locals say.

This shark is the Bull Shark. They can live in both saltwater and freshwater and can come up to rivers. They are known as the dangerous one which is responsible for shark attacks.

“But they don’t attack humans here. Because there are plenty of fishes in this river, it’s enough for them.”

The natural ecosystem influences our life. The natural balance between humans and species here makes a safe and peaceful world.

Human beings are alive by the great Mother Nature.


Have here or Take away?

We always make a choice in our life continuously.

For example, at Cafe.

“Have here or Take away?”

We choose one of them. Actually we’ve chosen something else already.

“Enjoy having a coffee at Cafe?” or “Enjoy having a walk with a coffee?”

We continue choosing something by ourselves, even if it’s a conscious choice or not. It means we create our life by ourselves.

We’re great creators of our life.

“Have here or Take away?”

What excited choice will you make today?

Have a wonderful day!
