I had the afternoon shift at work again today, so was able to have a bit of a lay in again. I got up at 8:30am as usual, got breakfast and chatted to Tom and Rick. I went for a surf at 9:15am, which turned out to be the best surf I had for a while. I was in the water for about 2.5 hours, and although it was only about 3-4ft and clean for an hour, it was well worth it. Unfortunately having not surfed good waves for what felt like forever, I was a bit rusty.
I got out the water just in time for lunch, and my shift starting at 12. After lunch I had to take the academy to Coffs harbour for their weekly escape from camp. It was the perfect way to spend the majority of a shift - 1-4pm out of camp, and I got to walk around the shops too. I also got hold of an Australian mobile phone which is all good.
As usual I finished the shift eating dinner and washing a bunch of dishes, before doing the bottle shop run and signing off.
For some reason everyone decided it would be a good idea to get crazy drunk that night, and sure enough things for wild! Everyone was really drunk and just having a laugh, when 2 of the full time employees just kicked off on each other and had a pointless drunken attempt at a fight. I broke it up with a couple of others, but it's now a matter of time until one/both of them is given the boot.
I don't really know when I got to bed as I was last up, chatting to a couple of others around the camp fire, but I guess about 1-2am..
