A weekend away in Coolangatta

This past Sunday morning Alanah and I jumped in the car and took a drive down the coast to Coolangatta for a few nights to get some sand, sun and surf. It was perfect!! Exactly what we were both hoping for. We got a room at a hotel/resort located right on the beach and stayed for two nights.

Sunday was a bit of a shopping day, with an hour or two spent on the beach building our buddy Wilber Crush.

Monday was ALL about the beach. Chris came down for the day and joined in on the fun in the sun. Alanah and I continued our sand crafting extravaganza by creating a life-size mermaid. I don't think she had a name.

The remainder of the day was lunch at restaurant on the beach, a walk to the rock pools and some more sun. :)

Tuesday was a bit cloudy, so the beach wasn't as welcoming. So Alanah and I took our sweet time at a nice little cafe on the beach for breakfast. We jumped in the water for a bit, and then we were back to reality... but not without stopping at a petrol station on the way to pick up some essentials: Salt and Vinegar chips, Gummy worms, and Water. :)

SUCH a great weekend! Didn't want to leave!!
