This is continued from Sydney blog...
Monday 31st Jan - After a 3 hour journey on the greyhound coach from Sydney, we arrived at Port Stephens around 10am; where we are staying in a gazebo come tent! After we dumped our bags into our "tent", we took some bikes into the town to stock up on some BBQ food and picky bits.
I need to add that these bikes were extremely rusty - and old - and with no breaks; which is why on our way down to the shops, I picked up some speed and ended up cycling myself straight into a hidden, grassy ditch - catapulting myself right up, over the handlebars and wooden basket! (Mum, don't worry I was wearing my helmet!) :( After shouting out to Danny who was way out in front of me I decided to have a good old cry until he returned; to see the bike stuck in the ditch and me all shaken up and teary...my first hour in Port Stephens was not a good one shall we say...
After this fiasco we checked out the local "One Mile Beach" which is beautiful and did a BBQ (and our first bit of cooking of the entire trip so far!)
Tuesday 1st Feb - I woke up to find my flip flops chewed and eaten to bits by the resident Kangaroo, Josie! (The place we're staying at is full of creepy crawlies, massive spiders - and to top it off, they rescue wild animals -at times, I have to say we feel as if we're staying at a zoo - only our tent is the cage in this case)
We caught a bus into the busy part of Port Stephens, called "Nelson Bay" where we picked up some fishing rods, bait and took to the rocks! Unfortunately my bad luck continued, and I lost 2 of my 3 rubber bait fishies - and neither of us caught a thing!
Wednesday 2nd Feb - Today! We got up early to do a dolphin/Sailing trip which was lovely - saw some great beaches and cute fishies (uploading piccys now, as no signal/computers/any communication backat the Zoo lol) Plan to go to the beach this evening to watch the sun set as some German girls have said it's stunning - so will make sure we bring our camera! Going to check on Danny now; as he's back on the rocks trying to catch something! (Hopefully not a Kingfisher bird - as they bloody insist on standing right next to you whilst you try and cast!)
Chow for Now guys - update you all once we arrive in Byron Bay.
Lots of Love,
Meika & Danny
