I didn't do a whole lot: a bit of grapevine pruning, a bit of gardening, a bit of fencing (the post and wire variety, not the enguard! Touché! have at you! stuff...sorry to disappoint). Some of you may be asking, "does bryan ever do more than a bit of this; a bit of that? what the heck?" and to that i say...stop asking questions. Teresa left on thursday because...well, because she wanted to go somewhere else. We wish her the best.
Saturday Bob and Lorraine took me for a drive along the south coast. We stopped at D'estrees Bay to have lunch and a look around.
D'estrees Bay is nice. I'm running out of ways to describe these beaches to you...beautiful, stunning, picturesque, brilliant, gee golly swell, whatever...they're nice. This particular beach has a sea eagle's nest, rocks, more rocks, shark eggs, and cool cave-ish cliff overhangs.
We went further down the coast to watch surfers get pummeled by large waves and then drove home. Oh plus i found a large Sydney Turban shell. Bob said, "You usually don't find them that large." but since this is the only one i've ever found, and it is in fact "that large", then technically, i DO usually find them that large, don't i? Yep. My logic is impeccable.
Nothing else happened!
I leave for Cairns on wednesday. Everyone keeps telling me how much i'm going to love it in Cairns and the Whitsundays and how i'm not going to want to leave because it's so nice and warm and beautiful and everyone wears beach clothes year-round. Sounds absolutely terrible...horrific even. Maybe i should just skip it and go home early? Yeah all this hanging out on majestic beaches is really tiresome.
Sigh...no i guess i should go so that i can keep this thing going and you people can have something to occupy yourselves with while you're at work instead of..oh, i don't know...actually working. hah!
