The sunny Gold Coast...

These photos are pretty old now, but are really nice shots of the city we call home these days.  A million  moons ago when I'd done some overtime at work, Boofy and I decided to book a mystery night away, just the two of us.  We got a great deal (in the form of a mystery hotel) via www.wotif.com.au and ended up paying less than half what the room was worth - score!

As it turned out, Boofy had some medical stuff going down shortly after (that we were unaware of at the time) so it turned out to be a wonderful calm before the storm, so to speak....  And given the amount we've spent on medical expenses since then, there is no way we would have been able to do it now, so I'm really glad we did.

Anyways, with further ado, here are some gratuitous shots of the Gold Coast, courtesy of the balconies at the Crowne Plaza Broadbeach :)

View from balcony over (a very calm) Broadbeach late afternoon

View from the side balcony looking north towards Surfers Paradise
(that is the Q1 building jutting up in the background there with the lightning rod)

View over Broadbeach at sunset

Looking north east (towards Surfers Paradise beach) from the hotel at sunset
Looking west (more towards where we live) to the Gold Coast Hinterland, over the Nerang River
(those are the lights of Metricon Stadium at Carrara at the top right)

I hope you've enjoyed the scenery friends!

Bye for now :)
