Monday's weather photo - rain is forecast for tomorrow.

On Tuesday we caught up with Rob and Donna for a coffee in Burleigh Heads. They had recently finished about 10 days at Maroochydore, and had been at Broadbeach for the last few days. After an early lunch they came over to the caravan park to see our van and have a drink or two. Tomorrow they are returning home and are not looking forward to the cooler temperatures in Hobart, although their house should be nice and warm as Rob forgot to turn the heating off.

Tuesday's weather photo - it rained for most of the morning - but a bit of late sun.

Its Wednesday today and while fine and sunny it is very windy - about 20 knots from the W/NW and gusting to 25 knots. Not very pleasant outside today so we went to Pacific Fair where David had a much needed haircut and Di did some shopping - what else?

Thursday was magnificent - sunny with no wind and a temperature of 22 degrees. In the afternoon we walked over the top of Burleigh Head to the Burleigh Surf Club where we signed up for a two year membership at $5.50 each. After signing up we had a drink on the deck with a view across Burleigh Beach before walking back to Tallebudgera. On the way back we walked past a work gang busy re-installing the pipes used to pump sand from Tallebudgera Creek to Burleigh Beach,

Friday was another fine clear day with a temperature of 22 degrees once again. We were up early so that we could pack up the long side walls of our annexe so that Colin and Louise from Australia Wide Annexes could pick them up and take then to the factory at the Sunshine Coast to have the outside blinds replaced under warranty. In place of the long walls we have erected our long shade wall for the next few days while we wait for our annexe walls to be returned.

The lovely sunny weather continued through Friday and Saturday, 22 degrees each day.

On Sunday we drove to Lismore in NSW (round trip 235 km) for the 4WD Caravan Camping and Marine Show at the Showgrounds. The show turned out to be dominated by caravans of every brand and style. Each time that we go to a caravan show there are more and more Off Road vans - the criteria seems to be a bit of black checker plate, all-terrain tyres and a 4 inch lift. This show was smaller than the Brisbane Show and much more relaxed. The only thing that we saw at the show that we do not have yet is a rotisserie kit for the Weber Baby Q, but at $140.00 it might have to wait for another day.
