We awoke after a brilliant nights sleep at Tina and Bard’s campsite in Broadwater, (what a wonderful couple), just inland from Evans Head. Spent the morning surfing (getting better at staying on my feet at least whilst getting out there and even better at keeping the bikini in place on the way back) yahoo. Ant isn’t fairing too badly either; progress is definitely being made.
Nipped into Pippy’s (internet-enabled) Cafe in the afternoon for a ‘Liver and Blood Booster’ (fruit and veg juice drink) whilst we downloaded all emails from the last two weeks.
“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
