The Gold Coast is supposed to be warm, sunny and visitor friendly. Well, the locals are doing their bit, the wind is very gentle, the rain has gone, but gee the sun is having a holiday as well.
Brisbane had it's coldest August for many years, the locals have complained. Today was an easing down day, a casual run this morning on the beach, then not much during the day, a stroll up to central Surfers.
Afternoon, brother decides he needs to go for a run. That's good, I can out run him now, but way back when he was younger, I would have had no chance, but I didn't run then. I play golf and drank beer.
Out we went, down towards Kurrawa Surf Club, same as this morning, but on the grass with the little bit of wind assisting. Back on the sand, wind slightly against, soft sand, the km rate says it all, slow, but good fun.
Back to our holiday apartment, towel in hand, down to the spa, pool, sauna, spa and pool again.
Too easy, good day, just need some warmth. Off to Jupiters Casino now, may need to take a jumper.
