Flying to the Gold Coast again

We checked out early, dumped our bags at the hostel 2 doors up (Wizard of Oz - affiliated with the hostel we were in and annoyingly much nicer with common room, dvds and TV etc) and wandered down for a five dollar lunch and wireless at Five-O's bar above McDonalds. We concocted a rough plan for the excursion we want to go on but our phones wouldn't call the 1800 numbers so we decided to leave it till we got to Coolangatta, before setting off to catch our plane around 3.30pm. As we landed at 7pm it became clear that it had been raining, and our shuttle bus drove through some amazing forked lightning till we finally arrived at our hostel in the pouring rain. My flip flop fell off as we were running and started floating away! So much for the Gold Coast and the jealous friends we left behind! At the hostel we ran under cover into the bar area with pool table, TVs, sofas and books.
