Every year in August, our friends, Ann and George rent an apartment on the Gold Coast at Rainbow Bay. While there they organise a reunion of staff from Kuraby School from the eighties and nineties. They organise a beautiful seafood lunch of prawns and Moreton Bay Bugs.(crayfish) I forgot a photo because I was too interested in the food. While some of us prepared dessert others went onto the balcony to watch the whales but Wes had his eye on the desserts: Pavlova, Tiramasu and dipping strawberries.
The view from the balcony is very restful but exciting when we see a whale breach. There is a splash of one in the background.
We were invited to stay the night. In the evening we went for a walk along the beach. Even though it was still winter there were many surfers.
After the sunset we walked into Coolangatta for a pizza. We could see the sun glinting on the Q1 building in Surfers Paradise
The next morning was another beautiful day. The teenage girls were preparing for a surf while mum watched.
Off they go for their thrills and spills.
We climbed up a steep path and then walked along the cliffs to the border of NSW. Rock climbers were having fun too. Then it was coffee time.
