Tallebudgera Creek - Week 7

Monday 11 July to Sunday 17 July 2016

The weather this week has been very ordinary - cloudy every day with occasional showers and rain.

On Monday we ventured out of the caravan park on the bikes and rode along the back of Palm Beach.

On Tuesday we went to Pacific Fair for a wander around the shops.

On Wednesday we drove up to Southport to check out the Broadwater Caravan Park. We used to stay here on a fairly regular basis but have not been there for a couple of years. The caravan park used to be on the waterfront but last year they reclaimed a large section of the waterfront at the park resulting in the caravan park now being at least 100 metres from the water. In the evening we joined Colin and Merle for a meal and a few drinks at the Burleigh Surf Club.

On Thursday Di went up to the pool to participate in a session of water aerobics.

On Friday we did the tourist thing and went for a drive south along the coast through some of the seaside towns on the way to Cape Byron. We stopped for photos at Kingscliff, Norries Head, and Brunswick Heads. We stopped for lunch at Brunswick Heads and had a walk around the town. Brunswick Heads was smaller than we expected and seems to be a bit alternative, and has a small caravan park which we checked out before moving on. We drove though Byron Bay without stopping and made our way to Cape Byron to have a look at the Lighthouse. Parking is at a bit of a premium but we managed to find a spot on the way back down the hill, and walked back up to the Lighthouse. After a coffee and a cake at the Cafe we made our way back to Tallebudgera via the Pacific Highway.

If you cant see from the Lookout - climb onto the roof.

On Saturday we drove over to the Carrara Market for a walk around but while we were there it started to rain so we made our way to Robina for lunch at one of the cafes on the Lake.

On Sunday Brendan and Lyn came over for a few drinks. They had been in Hobart for 3 or 4 weeks and later in the week they are going to Melbourne for a big furniture show.
