Tallebudgera Creek - Week 9

Monday 25 July to Sunday 31 July 2016

Generally fine and sunny this week with temperatures in the low 20's - we can cope with that!

On Monday morning David went over to help Brendan transfer a roof rack from his Range Rover to his Ford Ranger. They had to install new tracks on the roof of the Ford Ranger then bolt the rack to the tracks - as always it took about twice as long as expected.

On Tuesday evening we accompanied Colin and Merle to the Burleigh Bowls Club for the Tuesday Special - Lamb Shanks.

On Wednesday evening we were joined for a happy hour by Phil from Aspendale Gardens in Victoria who is a fellow Trailblazer owner who is staying in the Park at the moment. He does not move very fast though as he came from the Broadwater Park at Southport, and his next stop is the Big4 Park at Hastings Point. He says that he lives somewhere near you Frosty!

On Thursday we were joined by Brendan and Lyn for lunch and spent time talking about their plans to catch up with Chappy at Marree to do the Birdsville Track in time for the Birdsville Races.

On Friday afternoon we walked over to the Burleigh Surf Club (our club) for a drink or two and watched the girl's surf boat crew preparing for a training row.

On Saturday we went to the Gold Coast Caravan Show at the Racecourse and caught up with Brendan and Lyn again. We bought another small table - we now have 4 tables - last week we had just 2, but I suppose that they will come in handy although I am not yet sure where they will travel. Lyn bought a Honda Generator for Brendan who was not convinced that they needed one - but then he does not use the juicer, or the blender, or the hairdryer.

On Sunday it was back to Carrara Market as Di had decided that there were a few scarves and things the she desperately needed.
