January 7th

We got the cars packed and prepared to leave Kilcoy for the Sunshine Coast at Mooloolaba.  Joni got a hot last minute deal for 1/2 price accomadation in a holiday house.  On the way down to the coast we stopped in a town called Meleny to make some lunch in a park that overlooked the Glass House mountains.  Really pretty view over the valley and out to the mountains.  I guess they were called taht because someone on one of Captain Cook’s s journeys thought they looked like the big kilns used for glass making in England.  There was also the remnants of a rainforest there.  Most of it had been felled by loggers during a time when people weren’t near so concerned about preservation. The rainforest was really cool.
 In the rainforest the trees have tentacles!  Robyn, Tucker, Joni, Penny
