Impromptu adventuring, exploring our backyard and then putting pen to paper, hoping to entice you to try one, if not all, of our escapades, is my true reward!

Happy World Chocolate Day!
Winter is here (this is my excuse) and there is never a better time than curling up with a good book, a chocolate …and perhaps a glass of wine? Certain chocolates match perfectly with wine drinking and as chocolates are such a good source of antioxidants and nutrition, eating one or two should be healthy, shouldn't it?
I've managed to find a couple of divinely decadent chocolatey places, and wonder if you have too:-
We have Chocolate Country Montville, the Sunshine Coast's specialist chocolate shop, who claim "One taste and you'll never look back" - where you can 'build a box'; buy a 'gift box'; or visit them. Chocolate Country have been making and serving handmade chocolates since 1993 and firmly believe that the secret of any good chocolate is in the ingredients and are located in Montville in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast.
Then there's San Churro Chocolateria on the River Walk at the Sunshine Plaza in Horton Parade, Maroochydore, who offer a mouth-watering menu of (nearly) everything one desires:-
Image Wikipedia.org Churros dipped in chocolate
Crispy and golden Churros, made fresh to order dusted in cinnamon or icing sugar; or ... filled with hazelnut chocolate or Spanish caramel; or alternatively you can have the Churros for one - three Churros and a pot of melted Couverture chocolate (I'm definitely in heaven!); there's even a Kids' Churros served with dips of chocolate and sprinkles (what messy fun)!
With all these mouth-watering menus on offer, I definitely can't walk past without an emergency stop-over - 'my sugar level has dropped'; 'I'm too weak to speak' or any one of my regular cliche's I use to throw a spanner in the works - or is that a churros in the chocolate dip?
