The Big Holiday...... Day 14

Another rest day, especially after the big night last night.

Very little activity. Lorelle has a sore eye (who punched her last night, we wonder?). So it was Grandma, GP, Ben & Chloe off to the Currumbin Creek again. This time, near the mouth where there were small, or no waves, and lots of sandy stretches. Passed a market on the banks that looked interesting, but couldn’t get a parking spot anywhere nearby (we had originally thought about going to the Carrara Market today, but put that aside).

Spent a couple of hours on the beach. Lots of shells for Chloe and heaps of paddling for Ben. Would love to have had my fishing gear with me as not far out, quite large fish (bream or snapper) were leaping out of the water – a probable sign that something even bigger (maybe trevally or similar?) was on the prowl.

Back to the unit and spent an hour in the hot spa again, while Robbie went for a walk along the beach. Still can’t get Chloe to stand down on the deepest level (would be just over her waist in depth). Last chance tomorrow, but we don’t pressure her if she doesn’t want to.

Bit of light rain during this time, but that only made the spa that much more enjoyable.

That’s about it. Just a short report, but then we didn’t do a great deal today.
