Tallebudgera Creek - Day 5

Day 96 - Thursday 15 August 2013

Forecast for today was 15 to 15 degrees and sunny.

This morning we drove to the Burleigh Post Office to pick up our mail - more rubbish than substance - but it did include two Council Rates notices that had to be paid that day. One of these days they will work out how to email invoices for payment - perhaps when we eventually get the NBN - but not holding my breath.

From the Post Office we headed for the Burleigh Stockland Shopping Centre for a coffee, papers, a visit to the pharmacy and few groceries from Woollies. As they was no BWS in the vicinity we called into Liquorland for some essential supplies. We won't be going there again as there prices are 10 - 15% higher than BWS.

No Photos today.

Tallebudgera Creek - Day 2

Day 93 - Monday 12 August 2013

Another fine day today - 15 to 26 degrees.

After lunch we drove over Robina Town Shopping Centre so Di could get her shopping fix. The Robina Centre is quite large - being two levels of shops, including Myer, David Jones, Target, Big W, K-Mart, Coles, Woollies and a couple of hundred specialty shops. A third level down near the Lake has a dozen on more restaurants with outdoor dining facilities. While we were there David had a hair cut, while Di wandered around the shops without hindrance.

Tallebudgera Creek - Day 1

Day 92 - Sunday 11 August 2013

We had a bit of high cloud this morning, however the forecast was for a temperature of 14 to 24 degrees. The cloud soon cleared and we had another beautiful day. So good in fact that we decided to extend our stay so we added another 3 days to make our stay here 10 days in total.

This morning we lazed around at camp reading papers, and after lunch we went for a walk around the caravan park. For a bit of exercise we decided to walk around Burleigh Head to Burleigh Beach for a coffee. As we walked along the path beside Tallebudgera Creek we saw a Hoon tearing about in a small runabout. A number of concerned bystanders were trying to get the Water Police interested in doing something about the situation. When we returned from our walk we noticed that the runabout was upside down and being towed to shore by another boat - we were not surprised!
