City Visit: Surfer’s Paradise, Australia – Part II

Our second day at Surfer’s Paradise, we returned to the beach. I left the big camera at home today so today’s photos are courtesy of my iPhone. We had a leisurely day, staying beachside from 11:30 AM to about 3 PM. We picked a sunnier spot that wasn’t blocked by the towering skyscrapers as the sun crept through the day.

Towards the end of the day, we transitioned to the hotel pool for the sundowners. MrsWT73 could access some rose wine and it was remarkably less windy. We had some boardwalk views of the sun setting between the buildings.

Along with sunset views from the room after it got too cold for a bathing suit by the pool…

We finished our last night in Surfers’ out to Sandbar for some 50% off food. It was just okay, although really fresh. I went with an Tuna Poke bowl which was a bit bland tasting.

Then a final wander over through town for some last minute souvenirs. All in all we enjoyed our stay in paradise. I can see why it is such a popular holiday destination for Australians. Like my last trip, I would easily come back to stay for a longer amount of time.
