I know no one will care but...........

I'm not going to use the word boring because I think for families it would be a nice place to live with the lagoon bit etc but I'm just not really liking it that much. Nice for a day or 2 exploring but I'm not sure I want to base myself. There doesn't seem to even be much work here either, I've been looking online and I went around places looking for signs - compared to other places it seems quiet on the work front like the caravan site woman said. I'm going to think about it for another few days and keep looking at work etc. jake doesn't like it here either so he's going further south, thinking of joining him if I don't feel differently. There seems to be a lot more jobs in NSW and there's some waitressing jobs going on the Gold Coast

The gold Coast can be a bit rough. I remember a lot of backpackers went fruit picking in byron

Haha you'll have to drive past Newmarket for me to hear it. What's the deal with these toll roads btw?! We ended up going through them twice yesterday because I mucked up the directions. We found out we had to pay online so he put his card details in but it's wanting a estimation of when we are leaving and then they'll just charge whatever they think you owe but don't tell you until something like 7 days after you've left. It's really weird. Last time I ever went through a toll road you just pay by hand

I believe there are some toll roads in a few Sydney areas like this too now.

Yeah a friend told me about that machine. It was just a bit confusing at first and the roads were quite bad, I've never noticed jake so stressed lol. Was probably the thought of forking out the money :laugh:

 

Ive heard that surfers isn't that nice but that other areas of the Gold Coast are

took my friend to City beach today, bit too choppy to swim, have to find alternative beach before she leaves, late lunch at Floreat which was very nice, then a quick look at Hillarys boat harbour on way home which she liked. Home for a few drinks outside.

People that say all beaches are the same...no there not, especially in Perth.

 

i don't like the choppy beaches anymore, and just stick to the sheltered bay ones now. You can see if there is any nasty jelly fish for one.

 

In my area, I avoid Secret Harbour beach, great for the surfers though. I like Warnbro for the dogs, PK is good for the jet ski, Shoalwater is nice, but can be hectic with wind surfers.

 

Today we had a lovely day out down in Dunsborough, stopped of for brekkie, a few farm type shops, a few hours at the v calm Eagle bay beach, a couple of stops at the local wineries there with a bite to eat. Then back home.

 

every weekend is like a holiday living here:wink:
