Breakfast in Paradise

For the last three mornings, Will has woken up between 2 and 4 am. Somehow, our hosts, the Clarks, haven't been too bothered by this, but yesterday we decided to leave the house at 5:30 and drive an hour south to Surfer's Paradise to give them some peace and quiet. We arrived just after sunrise. At first it seemed like we had the place to ourselves, but it turned out that the Gold Coast marathon had just begun. Hundreds of racers ran by while we had breakfast. Will had his second baby "chino," which is an espresso cup filled with a milky froth. We also had omelettes and pancakes. A nice treat here is that pancakes are always served with real maple syrup and ice cream! Then we had a short stroll on the beach before driving back to Brisbane.

Thanks for all the comments and emails. I am hoping that I'll finally get a chance to catch up with my correspondence later today (after I go to work for the first time).

Surfer's is a great beach, but I have to admit I don't like the Gold Coast very much. I prefer the Sunshine Coast beaches - less tourist-y, more family oriented. Can't wait for warmer weather so we can go again.

That's such a beautiful picture - the two of you standing in front of a blue, blue ocean.

Too bad it's too cold to swim. (or is it?? *g*)

That drink that Will had sounds really good! Uncle Loo

Thanks for the tip, Mooselet. In fact, we are heading north this weekend!

We miss you too, Monica.

Did you notice my eyes are closed, Tors? It would have been a perfect picture otherwise...

Loo, yes that skinny chino is a genius invention!
