A day

I loved the Australian winter and Spring. Cold misty mornings, blue skies, warm and calm days. Then it could change to torrential rain, thunder and lightening. This only happened 3 times in the three months I was there. It was pretty amazing! Beaudesert is about an hour inland from the Gold Coast.
