A bathroom is off the partitioned bedroom area.
In the lift.
At Seaworld I spotted this unfamiliar bird. Anyone know what it is? I did see more than one, so they are quite common.
A dead sea critter, maybe a puffer fish?
We took a last wander around Surfers Paradise after checking out of our hotel at the usual check out time of 10 am. Along the beach front.
A beach sign.
Surf life saving towers are at frequent intervals along the beach. Always swim between the flags, kiddies.
Well, I'll be. A thong vending machine.
Here comes our tram after we collected our cases from the hotel.
At the tram terminus we changed to this limited express bus to continue on to the airport. While the tram and bus don't connect, we were just lucky a bus was about to leave when we arrived. I don't know what the two trips cost but for both of us, less than $10 and I doubt you could have done it much quicker in a car, as against $60 in a taxi or over $50 for two from memory on an airport express bus from Surfers.
A nice outlook while we had some lunch at the airport. Our plane from Melbourne arrived nearly an hour late and left about the same time late. We arrived in Melbourne forty minutes late. It was disappointing that our Tiger Airways experience wasn't perfect and I would have been feeling very sour had we not have been upgraded to exit row seats with much more leg room, especially important to the 184cm tall R. At least with only economy class, you are not subjected to walking past first and business class when you board.
There is not much more to say, except an observation. In Melbourne we are used to our service people being foreign born, such as in shops, taxis, public transport, guards and hotel workers. Not so in Surfers Paradise where most people were either Anglo Australians or of English/Euro heritage.
