This weekend we teamed up with Dustin and Nicola and headed up to Caloundra in the Sunshine Coast. On the way up we stopped in at the Ettamogah Pub for a bit of fun at Aussie World and to take our own picture of the most photographed pub in the world. Aussie World was a bit disappointing as the rides were pretty average but had a great time playing mini golf. After that we headed onto Caloundra and checked into the “Rydges”. The apartment was a little below the standard you would expect from Rydges but for half price we couldn’t really complain. We spend the night watching rugby and playing poker (with chips) in which the girls played those boys under the table and were left begging for some more chips from their ladies!! In between the poker we headed out to dinner and then for a dip in the spa. The thing with spas on the Gold Coast is that they think they don’t need to turn the heat up. The spa was freezing so to make it feel warmer its was someones idea to jump into the pool and then back into the spa. As we had all been drinking this seemed like a good idea. The pool was FREEZING but it did do the job and the only person who thought the spa was cold then was the woose who didn’t jump into the pool, Darryl!! On Sunday we had a spa bath in the room, this was actually warm and then headed back to the coast for a nap.
This weekend was mum's birthday so we decided to take her out to Dracula's to watch their new Fangs & Fetish show.
The show was good, but having seen the previous two don't think it was quite as good as the previous ones. Had a good night and got a cocktail the size of my head.
As Sunday was mum's official birthday day, we decided to take her tenpin bowling as she had never been before. So myself, Darryl, Sara and Mum headed out to play. After a few tips on how to hold the ball and bowl it down the alley we were on our way.
I was doing alright, not getting many gutters balls and even a few spares, in my opinion thats good, but compared to the "closet" bowlers I had with me, it was not so good!
Darryl came first (he owns a bowling ball, so we pretty much knew he should win)
Followed by mother (who had never bowled before)
then Sara "queen of strikes" she was good at getting them but no so good as using them well for points
followed in the rear by me!!!!!!
I was less than impressed (but don't tell anyone, I let mum win it was her birthday after all ;) )
