Tallebudgera Creek - Week 11

Monday 8 August to Sunday 14 August 2016

It was fine and mainly sunny this week with temperatures in the low twenties.

On a walk around the caravan park on Monday we noticed a houseboat on trailer doubling as a caravan.

On Tuesday we drove over to Surfers Paradise for a walk along the beach-front and a drink at Kitty O'Sheas. That afternoon Brendan came over to the caravan park for a couple of happy hour drinks. Lyn was in Melbourne for a couple of days, but they will be leaving on Saturday in their caravan to meet Chappy and Lee at Marree.

On Thursday we were feeling at a bit of a loose end so we headed off to Robina so Di could re-acquaint herself with a few shops.

On Friday there was a bit of excitement in the caravan park when a large breakdown truck came in to take away a caravan. It had a broken spring-set which prevented it from being towed to a repairer. Later in the day we noticed the houseboat out on the Creek in its proper element.

On Saturday morning we met up with Kirrily and Ian for brunch at Oskars in Burleigh Heads. They were staying up at Southport for a couple of days. After brunch they came over to the caravan park to see why we like Tallebudgera Creek so much. In the afternoon Di and I made a quick trip to Cararra Markets and dropped in to Pacific Fair on the way back.

Saturday saw us doing the tourist thing driving up to Tambourine Mountain for a bit of a walk around, after which we drove down the goat track to Canungra for a coffee on the way home. At Tambourine Mountain we checked out the German Cuckoo Clock Shop, where the most expensive clock was a Comitee Navigator Clock at $24,000 would you believe.
