Southport to Tallebudgera Creek

Day 91 - Saturday 10 August 2013

Another magic day on the Gold Coast - forecast 13 to 23 degrees and sunny.

We were packed up and ready to go by 9:00 am so we decided to wander over to Frosty's camp on the other side of the park to say goodbye, but they were not in residence. We found out later that they were on the road at 7:10 am to watch their grand-daughter's Gym session - the things you do for your grandchildren. We should catch up with Frosty and Marg again next year at Dickys Beach and Southport.

After a visit to the dump point we were on the road at 9:45 am for our short hop of 18 kms to Tallebudgera Creek at the other end of the Gold Coast. We arrived at 10:30 and were allocated site 292 for 7 days - a very spacious corner site with a north-easterly aspect - we can put up with that. By 12:15 we were all set up and enjoyed lunch in the shade - it was actually too hot in the sun!

Later in the afternoon Brendan and Lyn picked us up as they had a friend with tickets for the Gold Coast Suns match against the Melbourne Demons. We caught the train at a nearby station for Nerang, where we caught a bus to Metricon Stadium - would you believe that the train and bus is free if you are going to the footy. It was Garry Ablett's 250th AFL game, however the crowd was somewhat disappointing - no doubt because the opposition was Melbourne. Gary Ablett had a quiet game with only 19 possessions as Melbourne were double teaming him with a couple of taggers, which he found quite frustrating. In any event the Gold Coast won by 13 points.
