Well this is going to by the most boring blog update I have done for a long time I think:
I got up even earlier than yesterday morning to go for a surf, as the winds were meant to pick up earlier. As I was driving down to Caloundra about 5:45am it was raining an horrible, and genuinely reminded me of going on early morning trips to Porthcawl!
I went down to Currimundi, but the wind and rain over night have caused the sea to be pretty stormy, and virtually unsurfable. Instead I drove down and parked at Currumindi reef, where it was slightly cleaner and about 2ft. I surf for about 2 and a half hours, but it really wasn't great. There were some really good surfers out who were having a good time, you had to be very very good to make much of what was on offer, which unfortunately I am not.
I got home about 9:30am, and was absolutely starving. I had some breakfast and watched a film with Cecily, then felt really wierd and dizzy etc.
I went to bed about 11:30am, and didn't wake up again until about 3pm, when I felt much better.
This arvo it's been horribly wet weather, just like all morning, so we all stayed in. I made myself a bit useful by writing and advertising poster for my road trip and finding some local backpackers to go and put them up in. Hopefully that way I will find someone who I'll want to travel with!
Later I just helped with dinner etc, had my last meal with the family before they go to Vanuatu and watched some TV before going to bed about 9pm really tired.
