Tallebudgera Creek - Day 12

Day 31 - Tuesday 29 July 2014

Sunny and 24 degrees - what else would you expect.

We have now been on the road for one month and our solar panels at home are busy generating electricity in our absence. Since we left home we have generated 181.5 Kwh and put about $50.00 into the piggy bank. That's not too bad for a 3 Kw system in the winter months. By comparison a good sunny day in mid-summer would generate about 20 Kw. Our solar system is connected to the internet which allows us to monitor how much power is being generated. The system is also monitored by the installer and the manufacturer to ensure that all is well - since the system was installed in May last year we have had 2 micro-inverters and one solar panel replaced under the 25 year warranty.

Mid morning we headed to Pacific Fair for Di's hair appointment. David bought a magazine to read and headed for the nearest coffee shop to wait - an hour later he was still waiting - why does it take so long to cut a woman's hair? After lunch we made a last visit to Robina Shopping Centre for a few purchases. Back at camp we spent an hour or so packing up as we are on the road to Dicky Beach on the Sunshine Coast in the morning.

No photos today.

Hi David and Di,

We have been at Dicky Beach for 3 weeks. Your site has a motorhome on it, he better move tomorrow.
We will see you tomorrow, after Marg and I go to Bingo at the Surf Club in the morning.
Drive carefully.

Frosty.
