We set off bright and early at 5.30am when Amy & I were awake. We put Christy in the car and she went back to sleep for another hour or so. We stopped for breakfast around 7.30am – just near Coffs Harbour, then for morning tea at the Macadamia Castle (where we, of course, bought warm macadamia nuts for morning tea) near Byron Bay. We drove on arriving in Surfers Paradise just after 12pm. We met the lady to get the keys to our apartment – which is as good as the pictures – and she showed us around. It is really lovely and we have a view of the ocean. There are 3 pools – one with a beach entry, one indoors and a lap pool.
After unpacking we had some lunch -I had very yummy spring rolls – then we got some groceries, and went to the pool. The girls swam for a while in the outdoor pool – but it was pretty cold – so we went to the indoor pool and I had a spa. Very relaxing. We headed back to our room about 5pm and I had a cup of tea while writing up these posts.
It’s now 8pm and I’m just finishing up. Had quite a bit of trouble uploading the photos but with lots of phone calls to Kevin it’s finally been worked out – THANKS KEV!!!
