Day 9 Fruit Picking -
Normal routine, up at 6am to work at 7. It was a very nice warm day again at work. We saw 2 Black Cockatoos though, so if the folk law lives up to its reputation (which it normally does) we will have rain soon.
I finished work at 3pm as usual, drove home, dropped off all my stuff, picked up my surf board and wetsuit and went off for a surf. I checked Dicky's Beach south end, but the surf was small and wind chopped so I drove up further north and surfed there instead.
It was pretty crap again really, very stormy and you can get up on a wave for a few seconds. It was good to be in the water again though and keeps the paddle fitness relatively good.
After surfing for about an hour and a bit I got bored of the crap conditions and got out. It gave me the opportunity to drive to some of the other breaks again and check how they were in the conditions, which is all good for future reference.
When I got home after the surf I had a quick shower, then helped out with dinner. We had finished watching about 7:30pm, in time for me to Skype Ed at 8pm.
It was absolutely great talking to Ed again, we always seems to have do much to talk about. Once again I don't seem to be missing out on much at home, he isnt getting up to much interesting stuff very often.. It's always good to catch up and see what's going on though, and tell him what I'm up to etc.
I came off Skype about 9:30pm, so just made my sandwiches for the next day at work and went to bed.
