“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 259 – 18th January, Monday. Tuncurry Beach.

After an enlightening breakfast in Old Bar (the owner kindly warned us to look out for police since we were parked illegally – apparently you cannot cross oncoming traffic to park, and you must only park facing the same way as the traffic flows - oops), we headed further South to One Mile Beach in Forster – the water was absolutely bloody freezing at 19.5 Degrees C – the coldest swim we’ve had yet.
So we booked into Tuncurry Beach Campsite for hot showers and checked email.
That’s when I discovered that the $666 speeding fine I had received whilst driving 110 in a 100 zone back in Queensland I wasn’t supposed to pay! Typical.
On a brighter note, we saw our first wild Dolphins today in the Tuncurry estuary, ate fresh prawns for lunch and found the second Stephanie Meyers sequel in the bookshop in town.
