Today I got up early about 5:30am when all the others in GHQ were stirring and going off to work/lessons etc.
There was still some surf around, so Dave and I decided to go off for a bit of an explore. We intended to go as surf Shelly's, but in the end the wind would have been killing it, so we surfed Emerald instead. It was about 3ft with occasionally bigger sets, and I had an ok surf. I had one really good left which made it worth it. It was absolutely freezing cold with the wind though, which was blowing strong cross shore. All in all it was a very overcast stormy looking day, and pretty cold.
When we got back to camp I had a warm shower but was still feeling pretty cold, so I got back into bed and watched Family Guy with Lorraine on her laptop until lunch time.
After lunch we all just kinda chilled around the camp and in the afternon it cleared up and got significantly warmer. I went down to the beach with Dave and Lucy, are we had a 'draw-off'. Basically Lucy stood modelling, and Dave and I drew life size portrait photos in the sand. Despite my incredibly poor effort I won the little competition, probably due to bias judging more than anything!
In the evening there was a big weekend group of 60 odd people, so there was a big party night. Most people got really drunk and we stayed up till about 1/2am all by camp fire and movie room etc. It was a good fun night.
