Now there are only three.
We farewelled Zac, Heidi and Rachel at Coffs Habour airport and headed off to consol ourselves with some curry. It has been a dreary day on another front too. It started raining late yesterday afternoon and didn't stop. Zac and Rachel had a long surf in the afternoon ... I sat on the beach in the drizzle and watched them catch their best waves.
Back in the park, as the drizzle turned to rain and puddles turned to pools, people were digging trenches and organising themselves for the downpour. There was a mini lake lapping the edge of the tent where the kids were sleeping when they went to bed but they stayed dry.
This morning we rose early and had to pack up camp ... in the constant soaking rain. What a bag of laughs that was. We've managed to keep good humour all day ... the drizzle and rain has been constant ... all day. Its only just stopped in the last half hour or so but the drops are still falling from the tree branches above us as I write. Everything feels damp, although Maria was keen to get a couple of loads of washing done and dried after we arrived here at Saphire Beach ... only 5 minutes drive down the road from where we were.
So now we are just three and we're each sitting at laptops doing our own thing. Johanna has been working her way through The Little House on the Priaire box set on loan from the Winters (thanks guys) and Maria is continung her viewing nostalgia with shows she enjoyed in the past.
We loved being all together, now we will have a quieter season until Rachel and her friend Jess join us again in a week and a half. We'll discover what Coffs has to offer beyond the beach.
