Before we know it we cross the border into QLD it’s still pouring with lots of black clouds. The result of all the rain is a major traffic jam, we thought driving into Sydney was bad, I think the rain scares drivers up here. We navigate North up to Helensvale we’re not staying at the normal Treasure Island instead trying Gold Coast Holiday Park which is opposite Movie World, it’s just had a make-over so it will be interesting to see how it compares.
The rain clears up just as we arrive, we check-in and discover the site we’ve been given is pretty much in the centre median strip of the Freeway with some clever talking from Bill sees us change sites to one a little further from the road. Set-up done time for kids to find the “heated” pool while Bill and I sit back and chill (AKA can’o’clock)
Time for dinner and not wanting to drive we throw together an interesting marinade from the pantry of vegemite, soy sauce and a squeeze of orange, coat chicken strips and grill, served in a wrap with some rice, no master-chef but not bad at all (could be the cans)
Big day tomorrow-Wet and Wild so off to bed now.
