Flag of Australia  ,
Monday, October 2, 2006

Today, well this afternoon really we decided to jump in Kim's camper and spend a few hours enjoying the beautiful nature of Australia. It's about a 15 minute drive in land and I think it's at the edge of the rain forest area; my navigation skills as you well know are bad at the best of times but now I blame it on being upside down at the other end of the world! No really its true those Ozzies who have been to Europe say their sense of direction was affected while there.

Once there we walk a little way and head down to one of the many parts where you can swim and enjoy being at one with nature. Ben & Kim swim while Stu & I watch - could be a few crocs about I reckon!!

Further up the path there is a place where everyone jumps of rocks into the water and it looks dangerous as hell. Some one has sprayed NO FEAR on the rocks from where you jump off and the place was buzzing when we arrived. Guys & girls were jumping off from all levels and we reckon the highest level is about 50 foot!! The rocks stick out quite a bit so its not just a case of stepping off you have to take a small run and jump outwards or you could end up in a bit of a mess. Some girls were up there giving everyone a heart attack as they kept walking to the edge crouching down while trying to peer over the edge! I had visions of one if not both of them slipping and rolling down the rocks like rag dolls. They eventually jumped off to everyone's relief.

Ben and Kim decided to give it a go while Stu & I stayed on dry land taking pics only the pics of Ben jumping are shit and by the time Kim decided to jump the battery went flat just as I went to press it!

Back home we all spent the evening playing cards, laughing & drinking till much too late.
