Tallebudgera Creek - Week 2

Monday 10 August to Thursday 13 August 2015

Weather mainly fine and sunny all week.

On Monday we started the day with a few domestic duties before walking around Burleigh Head. The lower track is now open again after being closed for about 12 months. At the Burleigh Surf Club we stopped for a coffee before returning to Tallebudgera Creek.

We headed to the Robina Shopping Centre on Tuesday as Di had an appointment with the hairdresser. To fill in time David checked out the latest laptops at JB Hi-F, and found his next laptop - an HP Notebook with an i7 quad core processor, a 1080 HD display, 16 GB of RAM, and a 2 TB hard drive. Sadly everything comes with Windows 10, which might not be a wise move until the bugs are ironed out.

On Wednesday we met up with Frosty and Marg for lunch at the Coolangatta and Tweed Heads Golf Club. Frosty was very impressed with the expansive buffet meal for $16.50 and all you can eat. The menu includes soups, hot and cold seafood entrees, roasts and stir fries for mains, and a large range of desserts.

Back at the caravan park the Channel 7 Sunrise crew were busy setting up for the early morning broadcast on Thursday. They had just finished setting up their tents when a fire truck turned up to put out their camp fire, much to the amusement of a large crowd of onlookers. It got very windy Wednesday night/Thursday morning and the Sunrise crew got blown out of their tents and retreated to their villa units.

On Thursday morning we woke up early to watch Sunrise on TV - we did not hurry out of bed as 6:00 am is a tad too early for us. At a respectable hour we walked along to see the show being broadcast from the Sunrise Set which had been set-up on the lawn in front of Site 12. Later in the morning we took the Navara to White's Bodyworks at nearby Miami for a new bumper bar to be fitted. While we waited for the job to be done we checked out the local shops at Miami, then walked back to Burleigh Beach and checked out more shops, which includes a lot of interesting eating places. We were able to walk back and pick up the Navara at about 12:00 noon.
