Tallebudgera Creek - Week 3

Thursday 29 June to Wednesday 5 July

Another great week weather-wise, sunny with temperatures in the low to mid 20's.

We are still keeping up with the walking - its not hard when the weather is so good. Highlights of the week included a meal at the Burleigh Surf Club with Merle and Colin Sewell, our neighbors in the caravan park, a walk to the farmers market in the grounds of the Burleigh Primary School, a drive up to the Hinze Dam for a coffee and a cake, and a meal at Frosty's Club at CSi Southport. Frosty and Marg were back in Melbourne for the funeral of Frosty's mother who died last week.

David replaced the led lights in the bathroom as the old leds had turned yellow for some unexplained reason - Di is pleased now that she has good white light again.

During the week we had a fellow on the next site who was born and grew up in Tassie - going to school in the Glenorchy area. He and Di were comparing notes about going to school in the Glenorchy area, when it emerged that one of his Headmasters had been Gary Fitzgibbon, well known in Hash and Minihash circles.
