Where I stayed
The journey was 9 hours, which seemed to be the longest journey in the world, thank JK Rowling for Harry Potter!!! haha!! I've just finished the last book and i am by no way ashamed to say... there were tears.. real tears!!
Anyway, we finally arrived just outside Agnes Waters at 2.20am on Sunday 02nd September. We were greeted by a man called Macca and his very friendly dog Daisy who jumped up at us and licked our faces... needless to say, that woke us up and cheered us up after the long journey. On the way into the small town Maccca was filling us in on what there was to do and a bit of general knowledge on the place
The hostel was nice enough, a converted bungalow with a few dorms, a big kitchen and a chillout area with tv, dvd and some hammocks. The beach was only a couple of minutes through the cul-de-sac which was like walking through a scene of Neighbours... not that i watch Neigbours, but yes, it was very much like that. We spotted a few Brad's with their surfboards so we followed them and found the beach. We sat and watched some learners fall off their boards and laughed for a bit and then headed off to look around the shops.
We were sharing a room with a couple called Miranda and Chris, who we spent a lot of time with, Chris and I booked up to go on the mini Harley Davidson motor bikes.. it was brilliant! (www.scooterrootours.com) We spent the day zooming around the island stopping at look out points to take pictures and spotting Kangaroo's
At 1.30am Stef and I were picked up by Macca and Daisy and we headed back to the bus station to move on down to Rainbow Beach. On the way we saw a snake in the road, we stopped and Macca picked it up thinking it was dead... it wasnt. It was a red belly which is venemous, thankfully Macca tossed it into the grass before getting hurt.
So anyway, a brief stop in Agnes Waters, not a lot to do but was lovely to chill out for a bit.
Next stop Rainbow Beach....
Until then, much love to you all xxxxxxxxxx
