Saturday 1 August 2015
Another beautiful day in paradise with a temperature of 14 to 24 degrees.
By the way Happy Birthday to all the horses out there.
Di (Ma-Ma) is thinking about our grand-daughter Bronte who left today in the Australian Under 19 Underwater Hockey Team to play in the World Championships in Castellon in Spain. Bronte was very excited when we spoke to her last night. We hope that she has a wonderful time - but Ma-Ma will be happier when she is back home again!
We were on the road by 9:30 am today for a rather short trip of 190 km from the Sunshine Coast to the Gold Coast. While the trip was relatively short the stress levels were much higher as it was a mixture of 3 and 4 lane motorways with very high traffic volumes. Di gets a bit stressed with heavy traffic and keeps trying to put on the brake!. However being Saturday the numbers of trucks were not as great as they might have been, so the driver was not too stressed.
We arrived at Tallebudgera Creek at about 12:00 noon and checked in for 4 weeks. We were allocated Waterfront Site 28, which was not part of the plan - but we were told that Site 28 was the only one available. Its hard to understand why we parted with nearly $2,000 for a four week booking on Site 12 nearly 5 weeks ago if there were no guarantees! We will pursue this again over the next couple of weeks.
Site 28 is much shorter than Site 12 and our hitch is nearly on the roadway. However we did our full set-up in about 3 hours which was much shorter time than last time. We used nearly all of a can of silicone spray in the tracks of the awning which made the process much easier. We also set up our satellite dish using all the advice given to us by John at Sat-Plus on the Sunshine Coast. We have never had such a strong signal, and the significant difference is measuring the distance between the LNB and the Dish. Easy when you know how - its only taken about 5 years!
