Sunrise On The Gold Coast

We got up at the crack of dawn (actually, no before that) in order to drive an hour or so south to Surfer's Paradise (an ace name, and so typically Australian). The plan was to catch the sun rising over the Pacific horizon. I explained how we would get exactly the same view from South End in the UK, but was kinda overruled. I guess you're supposed to do things while on holiday that you wouldn't do back home, and it's a bit of an adventure so I tagged along.

We missed Surfer's Paradise and ended up slightly further south at Burleigh Heads. It was just as good though, not that it mattered - the skies were heavily overcast so the whole thing was a bit of a bust. Humph. Pics here.
