North point on Moreton island.

Went camping this weekend....for the first time in a loooonnnng time.  With all my travels, I really haven't made it out traditional camping with friends for awhile.

Monica and I headed off with Tim (Trena's boyfriend), Ash (Tim's friend), and Ash's girlfriend.  Trena had to work Friday so she decided to join us on Saturday.  Moreton was really similar to Fraser island.  All the roads are sand and only 4 x 4's can make it through.

We were camping right on the beach and spent most of Friday setting up tents and camping stuff, reading, and sitting on the beach.  On Sat, we went on a great little hike along the coast.  It got pretty steep in parts.  Tim almost fell off a cliff at one point.  Yikes.  Very beautiful scenery though.

Monica and I...aka super bikini woman and san the sandfly destroyer!
  There was a little tiny lagoon next to our campground where you could go swimming so Tim, Trena, Mon, and I jumped in to try out my underwater camera and try some water stunting.  Tim and Ash headed off for a little surfing as well.  I tried surfing for a bit as well but, there was only a short board to use and I could not catch a wave with it.  Plus, I was a little nervous about sharks...it's not really a patrolled beach so I lasted about 5 mins. out there...Whadda wimp :)  Safety Sandra...haha.

There were some crazy huge spiders in the bathroom.....they were everywhere.  I wouldn't go in there because I was too freaked out.  These are the first bug spiders I've really seen in oz though.  Yucky!  It was a great trip though.
