We had heard quite alot about 1770/ Agnes Water from various people so decided to go and visit there, along with Terese and Lars. On Saturday, the surfer Russell hired a board and attempted to spend the day surfing, while I observed from the beach. In the afternoon, Lars came and joined us, Russell gave him a surf lesson and told him everything he knew, which took about 2 minutes and Lars was off! The two of them spent all afternoon 'surfing'! We had a few beers in the hostel before going to the only pub in the town. It was someones 21st birthday so the whole town had turned out - a mixture of old and young but with one thing in common they were all very drunk! We were a bit disappointed as noone was dancing and there was no music you could even attempt to dance to.

On Sunday morning, we had a free guided tour of 1770 and Agnes Water. Im so glad we didnt try walking to 1770 as it would have taken ages to get there and once we got there, there wasnt really anything to see apart from 2 tin shacks, which cost $2 million each. The afternoon was spent again by the beach before our overnight bus journey to Airlie Beach. Unfortunately the buses were nothing like the luxury buses of South America.
