    Mate… after seeing this photo I thought I’d check it out while I was up visiting from Victoria.
    Last Thursday we got to Palm Beach and I sussed out the motel – looks nice. I went to do it on Tuesday (17/9/13) and I got there just in time to see a bulldozer levelling the last hump that was once the motel 🙁
    Talk about bad timing. Thanks for giving me the lead anyway.
