We walked around the Gold Coast early this morning to see how badly the typhoon had battered the area. As expected there were branches and trees everywhere, more damage than the typhoon last year.
What was most surprising though was the beach. I expected tonnes of rubbish washed up by the turbulent sea… but it was pristine! The water was clean, the sand spotless.
I’ve seen post-typhoon pictures of gold Coast beach from recent years and they were gruesome.
I have no idea why the beach was so untouched by the storm but in any case I was happy to celebrate with a delightful swim!
