Where does the time go? March is almost gone and yet, it seems to have only just started in my mind. So here is a visual roundup of some of the hikes of both the Hungry Hikers and Gaiter Girls.
Wednesday 7 February
Scarborough to Woody Point - 20 km return.
Our 'cool towels' proved their worth, on this hot day. New on the market.
Tuesday 13 February.
Elanora to Main Beach return - 15 km.
Murky start. Sunny finish.
The swimming centre for the Commonwealth games, nearing completion.
Wednesday 14 February
Currumbin Rock Pools and Palm Beach Parklands - 3 km.
The aim of this day was to keep cool!
We may not have walked far, but we all managed to swim over and back, across this inlet off Currumbin Creek.
Tuesday 27 February
Elabana Falls, O'Reillys.
The falls in full spate, after days of heavy rain.
Lamington Spiny Crayfish
Interesting facts about this crayfish. https://hillstoheadlands.com.au/crazy-crayfish/
Wednesday 21st February
Main Beach to Surfers Paradise, to view the annual sand sculpture exhibition. The week's thunderstorms had wrecked havoc on the sculptures.
I don't think I've seen our world-renowned, downtown Surfers Paradise, look so dismal and empty of tourists.
Tuesday 13 March
Broadbeach to Main Beach, on a sunnier day.
"Feel the energy, excitement and impact of the games as this spectacular new commission takes up residence on the Esplanade. Inspired by a starting gun's blast, tropical fruit, flowers and the stars, this vibrant sculpture celebrates an unforgettable moment in time."
We weren't very impressed with this Commonwealth Star Sculpture [the large star on our flag], specially commissioned for the Commonwealth games the Gold Coast is hosting, 4 -15 April.
