Today I woke to at 8:45am, but still felt pretty tired which was very annoying. I got up and Diggor was the only other one up as he was playing X-Box...not much changes from home!
Everyone else had a lay in until about 10:30am, when they got up and we started cooking pancakes etc for breakfast.
We were eventually really to leave the house by about 11:30am, when we went to pick up Cesily's friend, and went to the beach.
We went to 'Dickies Beach' which is only about 10/15 minutes from their house. Unfortunately it was miserable weather for everyone to walk Moose the dog in, but it didnt matter much for me as I went out surfing (much to Fenella's amazement as she is sure its "freezing"...she must have gone soft over here and forgotten what 'freezing' is like I think, as it was warm in the sea!).
The surf was about 3ft and stormy as hell, but I still enjoyed it as I have not had much time in the water recently.
Unsurprisingly the others didn't want to stay on the beach long due to the terrible weather, so I could only surf for about 45 minutes. However this probably wasn't such a bad thing for me, as I was suffering quite a bit with my cut foot.
After the beach we went to Mc D's for lunch on the way home, as everyone was starving hungry and everyone (apart from me) was 'freezing' cold. Although in fairness it was probably much colder on the beach in the wind and occasional drizzle than in the sea in a wet suit.
We got back about 3pm and just sit a fire and chilled on the sofa watching a film. The weather was so miserable there wasn't much else we could do.
Later Mark, Fenella and Cesily went to drop her friend back home, but Diggor and I just stayed at home watching a fishing programme on TV.
Nothing much else happened in the evening either, other than just chilling out watching TV in front of the fire and eating dinner
However Fenella did show me a lot of photos from their past holiday etc, which showed how much of this amazing country I need to see..
(Photo - I have saved some photos from Facebook to my phone, and this is one of my favourites; Me, Dan, Dave and Charlie going surfing).
