Scenes from the Truman Show

Back in the 1980s (before I moved to Australia) there was a bunch of dodgy businessmen colourful racing identities in Queensland known as the white shoe brigade. They made squillions from property development, and sometimes also lost squillions and scarpered. One of the properties developed during that era was Sanctuary Cove on the Gold Coast. Now Sanctuary Cove is a gated community geared to millionaires with a luxury hotel that offers (relatively) cheap facilities for conferences during the week, presumably to even out demand and supply. I spent three days there last week at a conference. It was a weird place. Felt a little like being a bit player in The Truman Show.

Anyway, it's good to be home. But here are a few pics in case you're interested ...
