      Woke up by the cleaners as they'd decided to clean early today.

      Decided we'd go and get some breakfast from Woolworths, consisted of some dim sims and other stuff. Went and ate at the Lagoon, then had a walk to the harbour. It was boiling, but the views were nice. There were loads of boats moored, one was selling fresh food that they …

      We headed to Woolworths to get some more water and snacks. Only a short walk but we were so glad about the Air Con in Woolworths.

      Headed back to them room and relaxed in the nice cool air.

      Didn't get up to much due to the humidity again.
