Tallebudgera Creek - Week 3

Monday 13 June to Saturday 18 June 2016

The weather has been a bit of a mixed bag this week - most days have been partly cloudy with showers, but temperatures remain above 22 degrees. The weather bureau have been threatening the possibility of another East Coast Low next Sunday, but as it draws near the rain fall prediction has reduced from 100 mm to 70 mm, and the wind strength predictions are also being reduced from above 40 kph to below 30 kph. What ever comes I think that we will be on the edge of the worst of it. Here's hoping anyway!

On Monday we went to the Palm Beach bike shop for a helmet for Di, but as you will see she has not been wearing it because it will mess up her hair! Later in the day David spent time making some curved gutters and installing them over the front lockers. Hopefully they will keep water out of the lockers which we suspect seeps through under the slide-outs.

Early in the week we had a Police helicopter flying up and down the Creek and checking out all the canals as though they were looking for someone or something. Never got to hear what they were about.

On Wednesday the Gold Coast City Council had a truck and a large digger working the beach in front of our site clearing up the last of the rubbish from last weeks storm. So far We have both been riding the bikes but have yet to venture out of the caravan park until we have had a little more experience - neither of us have ridden a bike for at least 40 years.
