Today was our last day on the Pride and we got up super early again to have breakfast and then head out snorkelling. We had showers in our rooms(which was really stupid because we were just going snorkelling in the yukky salt water after..) and then got all our stuff on the boat and headed to the part of the reef we were gunna snorkel at. It was pretty windy that day so the water wasn't as clear as it normally is apparently..ah well such is life. We also had to put on our stinger suits so we didnt get stung by stingers. They were sexy.

We got on the little boat and it took us to where we were supposed to snorkel. It was so stressful..I didn't really enjoy myself too much. I don't know what it is but that kinda shit just makes me stressed out, I went scuba diving in Fiji in January and didn't enjoy that too much either.

Theres just something about trying to breath normally under water that I just cannot handle. Oh well..I did it anyway. It was not that bad until I accidentally swam over some shallow coral so I couldn't swim properly and if I put my feet lower than my body I would hit freakin coral pieces and thats bad apparently because it breaks the coral which take a long long time to grow back..but I couldn't help it!! I ended up cutting my toe too! Salt water does not feel nice in open sores..So after some stressful and painful swimming I decided to screw it and wait on the beach til the little boat came to get us.

We got back on the Pride to go back to Airlie..and I don't thin I've ever felt more disgusting in my whole life! I'm trying to think..nope pretty sure those couple hours take the cake.

average..haha
We were all salty and sweaty and sandy. Bad combination..very bad. We sat on the boat for a bit and then arrived at the dock and made our way back to Koala's to re check in. Along with the rest of the bloody boat..but we got there first. That walk from the port back to the main street is DEADLY oh man..worst walk of my life! So far..haha. So anywho, we check in and the dude gives us room 52!! Wtf!! I mean come on, room 12 is like a 5 min walk from reception..how far was 52 gunna be!! We bitched and moaned for a bit..then he gave us a map and said it wasn't too far..LIAR! We were now carrying our backpacks..and sweat and sticky and smelly and hot. We decided to drop our bags at the pool and jump in to cool ourselves off and get less salty..even though the pool was pretty dirty and gross, we didn't care.
sexy beasts
Then we got out..put our bags on and kept trudging on. We even got lost! The map lied to us..told us to go the wrong way. bastards. 52 was freakin AGES away. We got in there and pretty much died. We all took turns and got clean and it was awesome. We had sleeps and then got ready to go to Morocco's for the Pride after party sort of thing.

We met Kyle and Jenna there and then more people came and we got jugs of cocktails and then we met some more people and our table grew and we had some good times..then more people came so we moved tables..I think thats why I can't really remember. Antonio had a sweet idea for a game. We had to write down the name of any famous person, as long as people would know who it was it could be anyone at all, fictional..from a video game.

the dock where our boat was
.an actor..a former president..anything! And then you give it to the person across from you, or whoever..and then they lick it and put it on their forhead. Then it goes around the table and you ask questions like 'Am I a boy?' or 'Was I a singer?' etc..and if you get a yes you keep asking questions and if you get a no you drink and its the next persons turn. It was so much fun. I did pretty well the first go, someone gave my Alanis Morisette..So funny, the person that gave Stephens his gave him David Hasselhoff..HAHA. I gave a german girl Pamela Anderson..hehe. So it was heaps of fun but then the game died when the wet tshirt contest started and everyone went inside. So then we went inside to see and it was revolting! Do this girls have no shame? Clearly not.
we tanned
.it was ridiculous. Some of the stuff they were doing I could not believe! Not being judgemental or anything...haha. After the fabulous wet tshirt contest we left Morocco's and went down the street.

We were walking with a bunch of the girls from the boat and we went into a few bars that all smelt like vomit so we left and kept walking and eventually went to Antonio and Stephens camper van and sat in there for a while..it was cute in there haha. Some beer got drank..was good times. Then a drunk Stephen came in and then we all left and sat on the street and saw the greatest thing ever. A crazy drunk guy was being really creepy and trying to talk to us and was falling over and being ridiculous..was pretty funny. And THEN a couple cop cars came and arrested him and it was amazing.

our group
Best thing ever. I loove seeing people get arrested! Good times. Lindsay left to find some other people and me and Steph sat on the sidewalk for a bit. Then we saw Sean from Cairns walk past us and we chatted to him for a while and then me and Steph went back to our hostel room.

When we got back there we were gunna go to sleep BUT then I saw a cockroach crawling around on the roof!!! No way I was gunna be able to sleep with that crawlin around. Yuck. So me and Steph turned the lights on and stared at it for a while. I didn't know what to do except stare. Eventually I guess we annoyed the crap of the old man sleeping in our room that he decided to get up and help us idiots kill a stupid bug haha. He killed it with a shoe and then freakin chased us around the room with it! Soo funny haha. Stupid bugs..haha
