Today was rather chilled out compared to yesterday. Once everyone had finished breakfast, we headed to our final location where those who wanted to swim could. Only two people took this opportunity, I think the ret of us were happy to stay dry for as long as possible. After about 30 minutes here, we started to make our way back to Airlie Beach. The sea was really choppy again and the boat was bouncing around all over the place. Rikki went and sat on the front of the boat with his legs hanging over the edge so that when the boat lifted up with the wave and then crashed down into the water, he got soaked
It took us ages to get back to Airlie Beach and we actually got in later than we were meant to. We said goodbye to everyone and thanked Dave and Johnny for a great trip then headed back to nomads to check back in. After collectin our bags from Peter Pans we set about doing some much needed laundry. On our way to the washing machines we heard tapping on a window, inside of which were Hannah, Nicole and Courtney from our Fraser Island group. We went inside and had a nice catch up with them before washing our clothes.
Later in the evening, we headed to a bar downtown for the Tongarra "After Party". We got there at about 7pm and found a few others already there. The bar did a deal where if you bought a drink for $5 you could get a free half pizza which everyone did. How can you turn down free pizza? Slowly a few more people arrived but there was no sign of Dave or Johnny who said they'd be coming. Our pizzas arrive at about 8pm and we all tucked in but ten most people started to leave. By about 8.40 it was just Rikki and me and two others. Bit of a poor show, but we felt bad leaving before Dave and Johnny arrived. We didn't want them to think no one had turned up. We gave it til 9.30 and after there was still no sign of them we called it a night. We were both really tired so headed back to nomads. I was asleep before my head even hit the pillow.
