The 3rd Day till Christmas

On the 3rd day til Christmas... Mum, Dad, Chris, Jeff & I set off to the Gold Coast for a relaxing holiday at the Marriott Resort. We left early & stopped at McDonalds for breakfast & picked up some Christmas Krispy Kremes. 

We spent the middle of the day checking in & went for a swim. Down here there are lots of pools to choose from. A huge salt water lagoon with  fish that you can swim with. A whirl pool, man made caves & waterfalls you can swim under & a water slide. 

We gave Mum & Dad an early Christmas present to climb the Q1 Shypoint tower. We did a sunset climb this afternoon & the view was amazing. We went in the lift up to the observation desk on level 77 & from there climbed up the tower. It was a really easy climb & an amazing view of the coastline & surrounding area. 

Check out my Facebook for more photos of our Skypoint climb.

After we got down the tower it was dinner time. We went to a little Italian restaurant in the main part of town then headed back to the hotel. Jeff & I went for a walk around the pools & lagoon before heading back to our room. The hotel is so beautiful with all it's Christmas decorations up at the moment. I'm loving visiting the Marriott again because as a family Mum & Dad used to bring us here on holidays when we were younger. It's been over 10 years since we lasted stayed & it's been special to share it with Jeff too.
