We had an interesting meeting yesterday with Nicole who is the publisher of Silver Magazine on the Gold Coast and is about to launch a new inspirational retirement magazine for over 50's.

Nicole has asked us to feature in a story for the inaugural edition in September. It was fun being interviewed about our retirement experiences over coffee at the Southport Yacht Club.

You two certainly have ‘retirement’ down! That should be a wonderful article; hope we can download the magazine!

Great for them to see that retirement doesn’t mean pottering around in the garden. You could be inspirational for retirees some of us are still very young.

I’m sure she was over the moon with you being able to furnish her with some inspirational stories. Perhaps it needs to be a monthly slot? Perhaps you should have another job as a freelance contributor?? 😊xx

What an exciting opportunity, although I think with the amount of adventures you get upto you need your own weekly column, be sure to post the article for us, would love to read it 🥰🥰

Well you couldn’t get anyone better than you both to interview xx

It should be a fascinating read, you have really interesting lives!

Maybe the September issue will only contain Part 1 of your adventures.

You could fill up the entire magazine !

I hope she's got plenty of space for the article. 😊

Some great adventures to share 👍

Looking forward to reading that article🛥⛴🚢

Could have been a long interview. So many adventures. ⚓⚓

Fantastic!!! We know you!!!

We look forward to reading the article

I’ll have to try and source a copy and read your interview 👍😊

Everyone else will be depressed! Or inspired 😊

Fabulous!

The beautiful apartment we were renting in Caloundra has been sold so we are on the move again. Some wonderful friends Penny and Gordon, who we met while cruising around Europe, invited us to Southport on the Gold Coast to spend time upon their beautiful boat "Between Tides". We have had a fantastic few days, the weather has been perfect and the company has been even better. It's a wonderful feeling to be back living on a boat again, even just for a few days. ...

Ah, so miss boating.

Oh my goodness. You take each move with such grace. I’d be a wreck! Enjoy.

When the borders reopen come and stay with me. No boats in sight but plenty of views to sweep you away x

There you go again!! What a lucky pair you two are. K.

It was a privilege to be invited to see the completion of Australia's first residential treatment facility for people with eating disorders, "endED Butterfly House". It's an outstanding facility. Congratulations to Mark and Gale Forbes for their vision as well as Andrew Wallace MP, and the federal government for their contribution. It was great to catch up with Bill Darby, Mayor Mark Jamieson, John and Maria Orning, Ben Murphy and many others. Also congratulations to the local businesses who gifted or provided their services at cost. ... See MoreSee Less

Another beautiful winter's day on the Sunshine Coast, sun shining, blue skies, 20°C. We continued our walk along the Coastal walkway, this time from Kawana Surf Lifesaving club to La Balsa Park. Continual reminder of the paradise we live in. ... See MoreSee Less

One of the highlights of our world cruise was spending 2 weeks cruising round Australia, beautiful. 😎

Paradise indeed ❤️🌈 xx

Beautiful!

It’s just a shame you can’t be on your boat this summer....but since you can’t, the Sunshine Coast is a terrific 2nd!
