It started off as a good decision. The wind had picked up overnight, and yesterday's calm blue iceans were today's wild seas, with waves crashing into the walls and going right across the road that fronts our apartment. Glad we weren't heading across to Fraser Island today!
We spent the morning having a swim in the pool (kids) and watching the start of the Fifth Test (Bill). Being in Queensland, play started at 9.30am. After polling my Facebook friends, it was decided that it wasn't too early at 9.10am to have a scotch, so I of course went with that.
We went out for a walk at 11.30am - yes, the middle of the day, not one of our smartest decisions. First stop was to get a photo at the "Big Shark"!, a shop just around the corner from our apartment.
From here we headed out onto the old Boardwalk, to walk out and see how far it went in the good old days. Maddi ran out of puff about half way, so while she and I waited with our friend the pelican, Helen and Jess and Josh went out to the end.

Back at the apartment it was time for another dip in the excellent pool area, with the weather still just perfect for swimming.
