Tallebudgera Creek to Dicky Beach

Day 33 - Wednesday 30 July 2014

It felt a tad cool on the Gold Coast this morning, but it was 10 degrees - perhaps we are starting to acclimatise. Forecast for today was sunny and 23 degrees on the Gold Coast, The Sunshine Coast and in Brisbane.

We packed up and on the road by 9:45 am after emptying the holding tanks at the dump point. Our trip today was only 190 kms and most of it was spent on the M1 Motorway, starting as the Pacific Highway and changing to the Bruce Highway north of Brisbane. The Motorway is at least 2 lanes all the way, but at times becomes 3, 4 or even 5 lanes each way. We spent most of the time sitting on between 90 and 95 kph in overdrive - so fuel consumption should be good.

We arrived at Dicky Beach at about 12:00 noon and were allocated Site 6 for two weeks - a double slab site that we occupied last year. Soon after our arrival Frosty rode by going for his daily bike ride. A couple of hours later he came back to check on our progress setting up. Frosty has a Trailblazer 5th wheeler van the same as ours and we have been following each others travels for a number of years.
