BRW – The Finale

Posted: August 12, 2016 in Travel

Well, there was a prelude after all. Noise level at hotel was ok but a shocking soft bed and pillow combo did not help with sleep. Woke up (for the last time that night ) to an overcast morning so went for a walk on the lovely beach nearby and then stopped for breakfast at Cafe Pippis. Naturally did not go for the ” house speciality”, much preferring worms

About 200 k drive this morning to Broadbeach so no need to rush off except that it is my nature of course. Have to allow for roadwork after all . And the stretch from Yamba to Ballina is a dogs breakfast with mix of roadwork and small towns to drive through. After that smooth sailing and onto Neptune Resort a little early just after midday. Now we had concerns about the location of this resort on the highway across road from Pacific Fair but were assured at time of booking we had room 703 at the back. Instead we see 509 on the sheet and ask where that is ” Straight above Sir looking out at Pacific Fair” Apart from that fact this is hardly a selling point, what happened to our booking at the back of resort as requested . ” Cant guarantee exact room sir, look at fine print on your receipt” That would be the receipt we get ONLY AFTER we have paid for room?? Assclown. The whining did get us a $25 breakky voucher for tomorrow 😉 . Can’t teach an old dog new tricks folks

As expected can hear traffic from room , just have to wait and see how disturbing at night. Sushi for lunch followed by quick trip to pool to at least have the heated spa to ourselves. Quite pleasant. Starting to cloud over though with some rain forecast. Later in day headed to beach for a walk as weather started to look a bit dodgy. Of course this meant one had to find shelter from rain and what better place than those drinking establishments with roofs

Rain through the night and slept ok even though can clearly hear the traffic noise. Also surprising given the excitement awaiting today, our last full day. Yes a shopping trip to Pacific Fair!

Stat, get me the Guiness Book of Records toll free number. I bought new luggage and a milk frother and CLP bought 2 donuts! I even left her there to go wild by herself while I settled now in for the hard grind. Barely had the trakkies on when she was at the door! I assumed her shopping was being trucked over later. Time to hit the spa then…. Now where are my board shorts that I left out on verandah in high wind while shopping? Hmm we may never know it seems . More shopping? Nah. Let’s go commando

It’s ok I wore some boxer shorts , don’t report me. So then we watch the absolute cert older Campbell sister bomb in pool before heading out to lunch and one last beer. Until the next one I guess. Relax for a couple of hours, last walk on the beach, try one of our bottles of bubbles we picked up with some cheese on verandah ( overlooking Pacific Fair remember!) and then a take away pizza for dinner to round out the two weeks of decadent debauchery of doubling caloric intake. Hey you can can be sensible in Maryhole after all. Speaking of which, back to Nambour in morning and onto Maryhole that afternoon

Which only leave one image to close out the deal and kinda pull it all together even for the thickos

Oops wrong one. Ok so we headed out for a walk on beach and pick up pizza for dinner . Then we walked into a Gin Joint and I saw the Shiraz Gin ….

Let’s try again

And it’s Goodnight from him
