Whoop Whoop .. i escaped HAHAHA

So .. the bus took me from Coffs Harbour .. through Byron Bay .. where most people stop and then up ... past Tweeds Head .. i say a big Bowls Club .. but don't know if it was THE Tweeds Head BC??  And into Surfers Paradise, Queensland ... on the Gold Coast (and a new time zone??) .. i hadn't planned anywhere to stay .. so asked a girl where she was staying and then waited for them to come and pick up up ... i thought i was going to be staying in Surfers Paradise .. but the hostel is slightly out of town ... in South Port ...  Anyway .. this girl i was chatting to ... i asked here her name .. and she told me and i couldn't believe it .. her name was Scarlett ... i said people over here and in New Zealand were/are always calling me Scarlett .. she says she always gets called Charlotte ..

Anyway .. so i am here .. the Gold Coast .. the PARTY place .. its all happenin' here dudes....

So ... its hot .. very very hot .. and humid!! .. i am wilting .. but as per me .. i bought the rain hahaha .. which is nice cos it cools down about 1 degree when it rain .. but then it just gets more humid and sticky

So .. i got here Thursday .. by the time i got to the hostel it was about 11ish and then i got the bus into Surfers .. and went for a walk .. wow .. it is so built up .. they call it the 'Vegas' of Australia .. but to be honest its more of a clean Blackpool hahahaha

However .. the beaches are brilliant .. and with every kind of surf to allow for beginners to experts .. sadly ... sore knee .. so want be going on a board .. hahahaha .. sore knee .. my arse .. the leg is much better .. i just have never been the surfing kind .. and now alas i believe i am a little too old to star learning .... however .. i can promise you .. the views are very very nice ... mmmm lots of young men .. wearing very little ... jumping up and down ... hmmm

Anyway .. enough of that .. hahahaha  ... the water anyway now is a little warmer which means that the Sharks / Jellyfish and Stingrays are out and about .. so i think i shall avoid the water unless i am told by several people that it is safe for me to get into it .. at least i haven't reached the croc area yet .. phew!

So ... i had been recommended a good day out .. SeaWorld .. and thats where i went to on Friday .. Wow .. what a fun day Winnie and i had there ... it was so brilliant that i decided to upgrade my ticket to include another theme park and go to that one tomorrow  ... the pass i bought allows me to come back to this one any time in the next 4 months .. whoop whoop ... so i shall stay a few more days and come back to the water park they have here ...

see ya later dudes

Kelly was rushed into hospital with breathing difficulties tuesday night, but in the end they decided it was some muscle has come away from her ribcage causing the struggling to breathe, but she is ok now, medication is working and was at home yesterday.
