Not Sewing Related.

              Have just returned from Surfers on the Gold Coast.
 Stayed at the Paradise Center right in the hub of activity. We toured around the surrounding areas of the Gold Coast and Hinterlands.  There is so much to take in and see. The new light rail is going to be great when finally open for the games.
Love the atmosphere on the coast, with there night markets, deep sea fishing, plenty of shopping. Think l will eventually retire by the sea. Perfect temperature most of the time.
