Day 12 Australia road trip
Kilometres travelled ; 37
Today we decided to stop, we had a great spot, free - all the better - parked with only a few scraggly bushes seperating us from the sand and the sea, toilets, with a cold water shower head on an outside wall, and we woke up that morning, opened the sliding door to that view - beautiful sand and water, like we were parked on it and thought, why move?
We did think it might to be a good idea to find an internet shop and make contact and update the blog,book our flight from cairns to Sydney, so that what we did, that took a good two hours on two computers and we still didn't manage to put half the pictures we had wanted to on.
On the way back we found a liqour land and surprisingly, the hunch we had was right, figured they make wine here so it must be cheap, and it was!! Two bottles of white wine at 4 dollars each isn't half bad, and you can get cheaper than that, got back to our little spot, tucked away from the posh houses, and they were some nice looking houses, just set up into a small hillside, tiny little access road the only thing that seperated them from the beach, big houses with full length front balconies over looking the small bay caught inbetween roughly a headland and the river mouth way in the distance. Cooked up some food and went for a wander along the beach and a bit of sunbathing, the water here is real shallow, really flat and calm, barely a ripple as the tide pushes in, but it goes out a long long way, way further than at Bognor beach, but its quick as well, weird. Did see someone kitesurfing - and we were like, idiots - we could of bought a kite and done this for three weeks!!
And after that was just a bit of drinking, some eating and some sleeping....
