Weekly Photo Challenge : Home

Weekly Photo Challenge this week is HOME A great opportunity to show you the beautiful place I live in. The Goldcoast is a favourite tourist destination. It boasts sun, sea, sand and a terrific climate almost year round.

Today, a perfect Sunday, brought out the people in their thousands. We drove along the coast looking for a parking spot and a place for lunch. We marvelled at the colour of the ocean the crisp white surf rolling in, all ages enjoying this beautiful weather. But parking was non-existent, eventually we spotted a car pulling out, right in front of the Currumbin Surf club, a perfect place for lunch.

So in we went, camera in hand to show you some of our day in this place I call home. Some of the photos in this gallery are from previous photo trips a couple are of our garden and a couple I just like, so added them as well .

I hope you enjoy this slice of my home…

  10. That’s a very impressive garden!

  11. I have never liked the gold Coast PP…but you made it look lovely

    • Maybe you only think Surfers Paradise and the “glitter strip” when you think GC.. I don’t go to that area as it is always full of tourists, there are many more quiet places to discover…

      • I think you might be right….I hate that strip

        • Unfortunately the young set have taken it over and it mostly caters for that age with all the night clubs, knick-knack shops, Macdonald’s etc. Burleigh is more laid back and family orientated.

  12. Gorgeous! Stunning! Wonderful! Warm!!!
    It’s in the high 20′sF here at night. Lots of avocado trees on nearby orchards are dying…..
    Picture myself on a warm Austalian beach………:)

    • Thanks Cindy I feel for you and your cold weather, I make that conversion to be minus2 to 3… I could not live in that cold climate. We think it is cold when it drops below 10deg. No wonder the poor avocados are curling up their toes

  13. Wonderful photos, Pommepal. Love your beautiful garden, and that pic of Snappers Rocks is outstanding. Number one has to be the gorgeous sunset. :)

  14. What a beautiful place the Gold Coast is! I absolutely love your garden :D

  15. I’d love to take a walk in your garden – what a back yard! Great shots! I understand there is a lot of surfing…

    • Yes Goldcoast is the capital of surfing in Australia and the surf breaks are world renowned. You are welcome to come and walk around my garden any time :)

We are a couple of retirees with a caravan. From our home in Sydney we are exploring Australia with short trips of 4-8 weeks. Our posts let friends and family know we are not lost and will come home when the fun stops.
