... go at them so they start banging the nuts against the tin roof lol! Not so funny when you're trying to sleep though! Anyway, after speaking to the owner brad we decided to have a wonder. We went up to a market about 20 mins drive away (the closest one!) to get some alcohol as Safeway didn't sell it past 11pm so couldn't get any the night before. Then we wondered down to the closest beach which had 'salt and pepper sand' (black and white) and it ...

When we got there the view was magical. It was such a weird thing to see green sand.
Way down below you could see people on the beach. There even was an idiot on a surfboard in the water.
I didn't really feel like climbing down there... I wasn't sure I had any strength left after the long day yesterday. It's not the going down, but more the coming back ...
