“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Day 232 – Tuesday 22nd December – Rainbow Beach
First surf was awesome – about 830 til 10am. The waves were long, constant and fairly fast. The second surf in the afternoon however was harsh – waves came at you from all directions, they dragged you in and out, and side to side, they repositioned my bikini bottoms every single time and they stripped me of sunscreen after about 30 seconds! We caught a few and gave up. Definitely wait for the tide to turn again.
