    Hi All,

    My wife (Jenny) and I, have just spent 10 days on the Gold Coast of Australia. We decided to take a break to get away from the constant earthquakes that are still hitting Christchurch. We had a lovely worry free time.

    I found a JB Hi-Fi shop and bought The Running Man, one of Arnie's old movies, on Blu-ray. I got it mainly because it has a DTS HD MA 7.1 surround track.

    The Gold Coast is a wonderful holiday destination, with fantastic beaches and great all year round weather. It is Winter there, but the daytime temps were up around 21C.

    Here are a few photos to prove that it DID happen lol.

    Great pictures!  Looks like you had a blast :)  Hitting the Hard Rock Cafe is awesome.  Was just talking to someone the other day how you always have to hit a Hard Rock when you're in a city that has one.  Great shot in the jacuzzi...what are all those bubbles from ;D  Oh yeah, and I hope that shark wasn't in the hot tub with you lol

    oh and of course great picture with the cowgirl.  She looks very...sweet ;D

    The jacuzzi, as you call it, is actually a Spa Bath (38C water temp.) which has lots of air vents that cause bubbles and also give you a nice gentle massage if you sit directly in front of them.

    The Cowgirl is actually a Gold Coast Parking Meter Maid, These Meter Maids walk around Surfer's Paradise and check parking meters. if the meters have run out of time, the Maids will drop in a coin or two so that you dont get fined. Cool idea. I don't know who funds it though. I also had to pay $A5 to have my picture taken with a Meter Maid. The donation goes to the Breast Cancer Foundation. Great idea to raise funds.

    I was just giving you a hard time :) Lovely pics and glad you had a great time!

    I love the meter maid idea! Can we have one in NYC so the traffic cops can stop hovering over waiting for the meter to run out and BAM...ticket!

    Good to see you back. I already was wondering about not seeing you the last days,
    hoping it had nothing to do with those last aftershocks.
    Fortunatly you were having a good time. Very nice pics!
    Any chance the meter maid  name is Rita....? ;D

    I did actually look for some in the Gold Coast JB Hi-Fi shop. I knew that some of our members were looking for them, but, unfortunately they were sold out.  :(

    Great Pics. Glad you and the wife had some time away from the stresses of earthquakes and volcanic ash. Glad you both enjoyed your trip.
