So we arrived in Agnes Water which is the town nearest the town of 1770. Unfortunately they have yet to think that most people who come here want to visit 1770 and so they have not yet introduced a bus service between the two places.
Our hostel was quite cool and we got to to write on the wall! We took a walk around all the bays and took the duck snorkelling in the rock pools where the little fish came and nibbled us. The bays were cool and completed deserted. We then took the 6km walk along main beach to watch the sunrise but when we got to the end the path up the hill just disappeared and rather than get stuck in the bush we backtracked the 6km back in the dark! We couldnt find the exit off the beach and so ended up breaking and walking through a building site. Maybe they should maintain paths and put signs up!
The next mroning we thought we better stick to the tourist activities so we signed up for a surf lesson. This is the cheapest place to learn - we found out this is because there are 28 people for 2 instructors. With our 2 min total individual instruction we still managed to stand up before trying to avoid everyone else's heads!
In the afternoon we found a guy who owns a plane and does flights for backpackers for about 25 quid. We took off, flew over 1770, did some stunts, saw stingrays from the sky, mel flew the plane (very well i might add!), then landed on a deserted beach where we saw lots of soldier crabs in huge swarms, we divebombed some fishermen on the way home. Very awesome experience!
Seeing as we had to be up at 5am we decided to get up and watch the sunrise seeing as it was only 1 hour earlier then jumped on the bus.
