A statue of the late Lord Mayor Sir Bruce Small. Whatever you think of him, the Gold Coast would not be what it is today if not for him.
A place for $12 steaks. It is not an old building. Virtually nothing in Surfers Paradise is old.
This amphibian bus goes out into the open Pacific Ocean. I first came across such a vehicle in Budapest, but it only travelled on the Danube.
A Tiki thing. Google is your friend if you don't what it is.
We had chosen to take a lunch time river cruise on Nerang River, in behind Surfers Paradise, for which we had bought tickets the day before. Haha, I got the Seniors price of $25 instead of $29. I started to book online the day before using the tablet, but then realised that I could not print out the tickets. A few left over bread rolls were tossed to the fish at the completion of the morning cruise.
Essentially the cruise showed us houses of the rich and famous but there were some nice views.
Nice boat man, with good views behind your mooring.
Southport School is a very expensive private boys school, far more expensive than our own Scotch or Grammar. A friend had a workmate who after his divorce and when his son came to live with him, concluded he was a wayward bad lad, and so sent him to this school to straighten him out, with some success.
I hope this is the right photo, a very expensive and luxurious boat with a dark brown hull. What an odd colour for a hull.
It is expensive to marry in this small old chapel.
The Gold Cost Highway crossing the Nerang River, the location of a number of incidents on the tram tracks.
I forgot my cap. As it turned out, I did not really spend a lot of time in the sun on the cruise, but I must think of head protection from the sun and so bought this hat. Once at work a bird crapped on me, which fell straight into my work bag and made a terrible mess. In New York, a bird crapped on my hair when we were walking to our river cruise. That was messy. Just two weeks later in one of our chosen breakfast venues in town, a sparrow on a ledge above me got me. My hat purchase was a good idea as you can see what happened.
A Surfers Segway.
His mate was on an Oxboard.
A few clouds to the north during this afternoons beach stroll.
But to the south, a massive storm. I like a good storm but sadly it stayed to the south.
I'll show you a close up of the sign in another post.
Cavill Avenue Mall. This evening we ate at the Kitty O'sheas pub in the mall. It was quite ok and a good place to people watch on our last night in Surfers.
I think this is at the top end of Elkhorn Street.
