The first morning there Kent and I went on a run and got caught in a cyclone (that's what a hurricane is called in australia)! Okay- so it wasn't quite that bad- but it was crazy. We got caught out in the storm at mile three and had to go back 3 more miles to get home! I had to close my eyes because it was raining so hard! It turns out our first day there was the rainiest march 29th in history :) Luckily for us - after that first day the weather was PERFECT. 75-85 degrees- a few clouds, low humidity, and NO rain :)
After our run, we went downtown to check out the farmer's market/souvenirs/etc. It continued to rain and we ended up doing a lot of eating :) I didn't take as many pictures this day because of the rain- so there aren't as many to narrate our day!
There's a pretty strong asian influence and Kent enjoyed thai one of the days. One of the best parts of a vacation is trying out new foods and not having to cook :) We were not disappointed in the variety and quality of food on our vacation!
Surfer's paradise had some amazing waves and was the coolest color. I'm just not used to the blue/green water! The beaches I've been to aren't nearly as pretty as in Australia!
Here I am chasing birds on the beach. They didn't budge. They weren't afraid of me in the slightest.
Australia is famous for the 'Gold Coast' and the 'Sunshine Coast'. We went to the sunshine coast two days later and I'm glad that I got to experience both. You'll have to wait and see which I liked better!
