Today the Magellan Ashes were to start, but our tickets are for Saturday, so what to do?
We have decided on a trip to the Gold Coast. A mere 1 1/2 hours on the train to Varsity Lakes, then 1/2 an hour on a bus to Burleigh Heads.
Is this a syrup?
We arrived just about 11:30 and went for an amble.
We found a drinking establishment and watched a little bit of cricket, but timed it badly as we only saw 3 overs then it was lunch! We watched Michael Slater and KP and his not so erudite comments!
We were enjoying full sunshine, but it was raining back in Brisbane, so as play was delayed we walked further along the coast.
My feet are so sore, blisters on my toes, and pain on my shin, so we walked by the sea. I hope salty water will help!
Walking in the other direction, after another coffee, cake and cricket stop, we found the park with an easy coastal path walk. So beautiful!
It was all I could do to limp back to the bus stop! I watched the sun set as we journeyed home on the train 🚂.
We didn’t much feel like eating, but purchased a cooked half chicken and some mushrooms 🍄, which we had on toast. Delightful!
England score 196-4 for day 1, so here’s hoping that with the early start to make up for time lost today, they will increase that score and we see Australia bat on Saturday!
