Dicky Beach to Southport

Day 47 - Wednesday 13 August 2014

Mainly fine and a maximum of 21 degrees.

As we had packed up yesterday it only took about half an hour this morning to finish the process. We made a visit to the drive-up dump point in the back of the park and were on our way at about 9:30 am. Apparently it was a Public Holiday today for the Ekka - better known as the Queensland Royal Show in Brisbane, which runs for 10 days each year. Out on the highway it did not appear to have made much difference as there were still plenty of trucks. Even so the trip was uneventful as we traversed the Bruce Motorway, the Gateway Motorway and the Gold Coast Motorway - a total of 168 kms which took just over two hours.

We arrived at the Broadwater Tourist Park at about mid-day and checked in for two weeks - we were allocated site 66, which is in the southern end of the park - as it turned out we are quite close to Frosty and Marg who have a similar rig to ours. We did an easy set up as we are expecting Australia Wide Annexes to arrive early in the morning to fit our new annexe. Later in the afternoon Frosty and Marg came over for a couple of cold refreshers. They told us all the details of the fire that completely destroyed Frosty's parents place in Melbourne - thankfully they are both well after their ordeal.
