|I took this picture crossing the bridge to Surfer's Paradise|
Probably best that I didn't take very much money with me but one of my friends won $80 on a race.
People were totally decked out in fancy hats and fascinators and the horses seemed a lot smaller than ones that race at home.
After the races we took a bus to Surfer's Paradise and by 10pm I was ready for bed. I powered through though and had a great time.
Yesterday one of my friends with a car drove to Coolangatta to a town called Kirra with beautiful quiet beaches. The water was crystal clear with tons of sand bars. It was a perfect beach day.
