The next morning we woke up at sunrise again and packed up for the road. I managed to loose my phone that day (and wouldn’t find it until 2 days later), and I was pretty mad about that, hah.. After searching for it for an hour we eventually had to give up and headed towards Coffs harbour. Arriving at Coffs harbour we were thrilled to have real showers again and a shady campsite! Tent up we spent the afternoon chilling and reading! For dinner we had decided it was about time to have a barbie and so we scoffed on sausages, corn and other treats, with ice cream for dessert! Yummy! In the evening we had some drinks and listened to the faint carol singing in the distance at a nearby park event.
The next morning we went into town and parted our ways to do some secrete santa shopping for a quick hour. I had picked Max from the hat who turned out was really hard to buy prezzies for! I flew desperately from shop to shop trying to find some inspiration, but I was blank! With nothing in my hands when we returned an hour later, I was glad I wasn’t the only one who turned out to be struggling as Shawnee hadn’t found much either! The rest of the day we all were discretely trying to get an idea of what our person wanted for Christmas through vague interrogation. I eventually managed to settle on camping gear as my best chance and bought a cool camping mug the next day (attempt #2). The rest of that afternoon we spent exploring, first a trip to the harbour for a delicious ice cream (passionfruit) looking at the boats and even spotting rays swimming around! Later that day we attempted to do some sunbathing at the beach, but it turned out to be a bit too windy, so we didn’t stay long! There was time for some swimming and having a peak at a “thong (flip flop) tree” though, a tree pegged with flip flops, some with hand-written messages on and some just pretty colourful ones!
