LAST DAY ON THE COAST

Recently we spent 5 days on the Gold Coast with our family. On the last day the weather was perfect.  We have a saying in Queensland,  "....where the weather is beautiful one day and perfect the next." Well we did have one overcast day but the others were great. I took a look over the balcony and wished we could all stay longer, but work called for the young ones.

Then I saw Sonya, Carol and the boys playing on the beach, so I went down to join them.



It was a bit cool in the water today so we packed up and went for a walk to the shops where the boys wanted to show me "Cheeky" the fish, which was in a Real Estate Office.

Later in the evening Grandaddy was cooking dinner and pretending to be "The Swedish Chef" from The Muppet Show. However, the boys had never heard of him (a bit before their time) so Grandaddy introduced the boys to 'The Swedish Chef" on You Tube. They really enjoyed it.

We were up early the next morning to drive Sonya and the boys to the Coolangatta Airport.  Luckily it is only 15 mins away. It takes them 2.5 hours to get home to Melbourne, where Sonya had to rush them to school for a colour fun run.

Time to say goodbye to these scallywags.

  3. I loved the Gold Coast, we stayed there a number of years back. We also got horribly lost finding our accommodation!! BIL was navigating and I remember passing the same sign saying Tambourine Mountain 3 times before we finally found our time share which we had exchanged with our South African time share for that year. I cannot remember the name of the time share but it was a lovely spot next to a lake.
    Wish we could watch YouTube but or WiFi here i the country is not fast enough!
    Hope all is well, have a good weekend, t'other Diane

  8. Just been back to look at last two posts about your trip Diane, lots of fun! You are so lucky to be able to spend so much time with your grandchildren and your daughters. The distance between Perth and... anywhere :) makes impromptu visits tricky ✨
