Day Two (Sunday) - It is still overcast but Isaac is dying to get into the pool. Went in the spa early. Isaac and Rob braved the pool. After breakfast went for a stroll around the block. We bought some books for the kids at secondhand bookstore. The kids played in a playground. We walked onto the beach for a play in the sand but we were chased back to the unit by rain. Went for a drive down to Tweed, found Tweed City shopping centre. Bought some Lego & bath dolly for Ava, sand buckets and spades and Volleys shoes for Isaac. We had lunch at the food court and poor Isaac tipped almost his whole bottle of juice into his shorts. After getting back, changing, building Lego and 'resting' we went back to the beach with the buckets and spades, ignored the rain this time and built sandcastles. Dinner was fresh prawns, mmmmm.
|The spa was lovely|

|"We're going to the beach!"|
|"Don't go in the water!"|
|Up to Time Zone|
|Ava and I even had a go|
|Rob thought he was at firearms training|
|Strolling around Surfers|

|Who needs a scooter, it's more fun to run|
Day Five (Wednesday) - You guessed it, another cloudy and wet morning. We decided to drive north again to see if it would be fine enough for Putt Putt at Mermaid when we got there. It wasn't. We went to Pacific Fair instead. We all had coffees at a coffee shop and then we bought some more toys and DVD's for indoor entertainment when we got home. When we got back to the unit, Rob and I had the best sushi ever again for lunch. Then Isaac watch his DVD on the laptop in the bedroom and Ava watched hers on the portable DVD player from the car. Then we had a phonecall from Mum with the very sad news that Bevan had passed away. I had a nap and then we went for a walk and Isaac took his scooter. We walked to the top of the hill to a lookout and then looked in a collectibles/antiques store and stopped at a playground on the way back to the unit. We had Thai takeaway for dinner. I'm loving not having to cook!
Day Seven (Friday) - Raining again. Rob left just before 7am to drive home to get our clothes for Bevan's funeral tomorrow. The kids and I spent some time in the unit, looking up the Lego webside, watching DVD's and reading. The weather fined up around lunch time so I took the kids down for gelati. Then we went back to the unit. The kids watched their DVDs and I got to finish reading my book. Rob got back just before 2pm. We went for one last swim in the spa and pool.

Day Eight (Saturday) - We packed up and checked out just before 8am. Then drove to the farm for Bevan's funeral.
