Postcards from Stradbroke Island

Recently we visited Stradbroke Island just for the night. We camped at Cylinder beach, which was a wonderful experience, though I may not go again during school holidays. The weekend was spent lazily walking about the island, and two ice cream comes were consumed...

Late on Saturday afternoon we met a group of friends on Cylinder beach, pastis or rosé in hand (dependant on your preference of course).

We sat in the sand, devoured olives and watched eager fishermen. Brought to our bodyboard-table in the sand were little green sweet chillies, with only the slightest hint of heat, seared on the BBQ with oil and salt. Perfection.
