Day 4 strawberry picking;
As usual I was up at 6am again to have breakfast etc, however today I also put my wetsuit and surfboard in the car too so I could go for a surf after work.
Work was a bit better again today - we were back to picking fruit rather than maintaining the plants, which isn't half as back breaking! I also got a new trolley (how exciting..not) which is so much better than my old one so that also makes the job easier.
After work I also gave Greg all my payment details, so hopefully I will be paid the end of the week, wahoo!
After work I drove straight to Dicky Beach, about a 25 mins drive away, to find when I got there a howling cross shore wind and crap surf..perfect.
Thinking there was no hope I just decided to explore around the coast a bit, and founds lots of little bays etc which I might come back to surf one day. Eventually I ended up at Kings Beach, to find a 1ft clean wave. Despite about 20 people already being on the peak I went for a paddle. I found that alll the wax had melted on my board in the car during the day, resulting in a rubbish wax job so that wasn't idea.
It was no better than expected but sill good to be in the water again.
When I got back we just had dinner and chilled watching TV etc. I have also linked my DropBox account with Fenella's PC, so I will be able to go through and pick out the best ones to Facebook - my NetBook is too slow for the task unfortunately.
