GOLD COAST - FEET UP

The three Bailey girls got together on the Gold Coast for a family gathering this week. They come from NSW South Coast, Cairns and Goulburn. So, it's kinda special when they all get together.

Unfortunately the senior member of the trio had considerable difficulty even getting out of the lift and did a few extra laps until the doors opened willingly and allowed her access to the appointed floor. She shows some embarrassment in the photo above as she finally departs from the lift!

Here's CONTESSA on Main at Main Beach. An ideal place to stay.
The view north from the 9th floor was pretty good. Can you see the duck having a swim in our pool? They also had indoor pool and spa, sauna and gym.

Andrew, Pamela, Bob Barrett and GK had a bash on the tennis court. Thanks for bringing the equipment Bob. It's always good to have a smack at tennis and remember that there are people our age who can't play any more.

Main Beach.... just a couple of blocks away. From here, it's a 30-40 minute walk to Surfers Paradise.

We were very pleased with our flights up and back with JETSTAR. Sure we didn't get any free drinks or tucker, but we got back in 1:20 to Sydney. Fay and Pat head south.... Cher was to head north a couple of days later.

The girls enjoyed the flight on the way south, while.....

GK took the opportunity to catch up on some zzzzzs.

Thanks Cher and David and Julie for the great winter break.
