While the Rainbow Beach Over 60s like to explore the surrounding countryside on their outings together, the events we have here in Rainbow usually remain the most popular.
This month we stayed at home and had lunch at the Surf Club. There was a great roll up of more than 20 members; the food was really good, very fresh and beautifully presented and promptly served, in spite of the fact that the place was packed and there were a couple of other larger bus groups.
The view of the sparkling ocean and clear blue sky through that glass wall, and the fresh breeze streaming through the louvres also made for a very enjoyable get together.
And of course there was the big surprise – we were able to celebrate Ray Kahl’s very significant birthday with a delightfully decorated chocolate cake. (Fortunately he wasn’t required to blow out all the candles.)
Next month we’re not straying too far from home. On Thursday March 10, we’re off to Tinnanbar for a BYO morning tea and lunch. It will be high tide so for any keen swimmers, bring your togs.
For those who haven’t been there, Tinnanbar is one of those interesting little villages nestled beside the Great Sandy Strait. The road in is sealed for the most part with only about 5km of good unsealed surface. Should be a good day.
Ring Don and Helen, 0409516936 or John and Margaret 54868153 for carpooling. Non-members who would like to join us ring the above.
Don’t forget first Tuesday coffee: March 1, 11.30am at the Surf Club.
