We made it! We surived just over 12 weeks in Port Hedland! We worked very hard and managed to save $15,000! (that's 6,000 pound!)
We were sad to say goodbye to a lot of people (and happy to see the back of others! hee hee!) and had a good last few weeks, going out, eating well and visiting South Hedland for the first time (we had not left where we worked for 10 whole weeks...owch!) The two new girls who came to work with us a couple of weeks before we left were fab... both fom Cornwall and a good laugh...miss you!
I also went to see the stairway to the moon the weekend before we left which was pretty cool. The moon rises over the water like a giant orange ball in the sky and the reflection of the moon on the mudflats creates what looks like steps leading to the moon.
When everyone finished work, we all went to the pier for a couple of hours to celebrate Hayley's upcoming birthday and our leaving. We all got very drunk and sat in front of the hotel by the beach drinking till all hours...a good night was had by all.
So it was time to say goodbye....I didn't want to say goobye now. We were like a little family, eating, working, living and socialising together. It was hard but it had to be done. We were treated to a great meal from the hotel on our last night and were plied with drinks (thanks Mercia - it was very cool of you :) and said our goodbyes - once that night when drunk and again with hangovers in the morning...really hope we'll see some of the gang again some day...sniffle, sniffle...
