    I never knew there was a place called Surfers Paradise -- is that the official name?
    Those sand sculptures are great, but I have mixed feelings about the meter maids. On the one hand, I am always glad to see lovely young ladies in bikinis. On the other hand, I feel that parked cars are a dreadful nuisance, and motorists should not be encouraged to overstay their welcome. For a while I even had this as my motto here on VT: "The surface of the Earth is too valuable to be wasted on car parking."

      Yes, That is the official name. I know how you feel about cars, but in Australia, they are a necessary evil. On a brighter note, new German trams have been introduced in this area and will be fully operational soon. I hope they are patronized!

    I read an article in one of our papers recently about the good work the meter maids were doing.

      Thanks Dee! I love them, so we go every year. Each year has a different theme for them to sculpt.
