Tallebudgera Creek - Week 5

Monday 27 June to Sunday 3 July 2016

On Monday it was still cloudy and windy - we are over the wind - is it always like this in June?

Tuesday started at 4 degrees - much too cold for this part of the world - but the weather improved to a beautiful sunny day. This morning Di's hair dryer blew up so we headed off to Pacific Fair for a replacement from Myers. Her old hair dryer was a quite expensive salon version but we should not complain too much as it lasted about 25 years.

Since our last visit to the Gold Coast, Pacific Fair has been undergoing a major upgrade and while not yet finished will be a major competitor for the Robina Shopping Centre. Car Parking is a bit of a worry though as height restrictions vary from 1.9 m to 2.0 m to 2.2 m - and being 1.94 metres over the roof rack we will have to be careful.

Wednesday was also a cool start, but improved to a beautiful sunny day with little wind. Once again we had a bike ride around the caravan park for a while - the bike seats are very hard! Later we walked around Burleigh Head for an ice-cream at the Burleigh Surf Club. While walking around to Burleigh we passed some boys diving off the Tallebudgera Creek Bridge.

The rest of the week was sunny and warm with temperatures of up to 22 degrees and no wind. The caravan park started to fill up on Friday and we now have plenty of kids around with school holidays. We have continued with the bike riding and made a couple of walks to Burleigh Head.

On Sunday we noticed a couple of Policemen on Jetskis checking out the boats on Tallebudgera Creek.
