Who would live anywhere else but here at Living Choice Twin Waters? As the sun shone brightly on 13th October, 17 residents and two guests boarded the village bus for a morning filled with fun, information and nostalgia.

Our resident volunteer bus driver, Graeme, headed the bus out of the village with the question “How did Pacific Paradise get its name”? From then for the next hour as we made our way through Alexandra Headland, Mooloolaba and down to Shelley, Moffat and King’s Beaches, we learnt much about the history of the area. Finally we reached the Queensland Air Museum at Caloundra where we were made welcome by some of the volunteers there.

After enjoying a picnic morning tea we divided into two groups and were given a guided tour of the Museum and the exhibits. For many of us it was information, but for some it was a trip down memory lane.

After an hour of viewing the many different exhibits and hearing so many tales of past experiences it was time to bid farewell and return back to our homes. But who will ever forget seeing the Canberra Bomber, the F-111, the Bell Iroquois and the Fairey Gannet, to name just a few of the well-preserved and well-presented exhibits.
