Happy 'Straya Day for yesterday Sheila's!

I had grand delusions of a witty and hilarious Aussie Day post... unfortuately, I wasn't feeling it yesterday... at. all!
Let me talk you through my loooong weekend.
Saturday.. as you know, went Quad biking. Fucking AWESOME!
Sunday, we drove to South West Rock (a little south of here) and spent the day snorkelling.
Monday, we went up into the hinterland to Dorrigo and the Promised Land. This was when I lost my mojo.... and my cool. I was very short fused and snapped at Micko a few times - for no reason whatsoever. I was angry at drivers, pedestrians, shop keepers, the waterfalls, my shoes, my handbag, Micko's parking, my breakfast... in short, I was angry at everything. I had no idea why.

We got to Dangar Falls after a really shitty breakfast which nearly made me cry. The bacon was not cooked to my liking and the plate was very deep. The poached eggs were soaking wet and therefore all the food was kind of swimming around on the plate. I dragged myself out of the car and reluctantly walked to the look out... Then went to the toilet. Ahhhhh! So THAT'S why I was sooo moody!   I'm on the blob (now do you know what it means?
Anyways... Here is my weekend in photos. I will be posting on Australia, just not today... today, I feel like eating a bag of white choc raspberry bullets and a 4 litre container of mango icecream.

In and around the Novotel on the north side of Coffs...  The beach shots with the Island in the back ground are at Sapphire (I think).  Nice quiet beach... big white mansions lead up to it. 

South West Rocks... We snorkelled around the rocks.

Me and Micko with a Mango Sorbet!  Was quite a warm day... actually, every day is a stinker at the moment.  Humid as all fuck!

On the way up to Dorrigo.  Today is when I got my funk on... and couldn't let it go.

Even another beautiful waterfall on the side of the road couldn't make it pass.

Mosaic Masterpiece.... One day, I might give something this adventurous a crack!

From the tree top walk at Dorrigo.  Soooo beautiful!  On a clear day you can see the coast.  Started to breath a little here.  There's not a lot you can feel shitty about when you're on top of the world, right?

Dangar Falls.

To make the day even better (yes, I'm being sarcastic)... Micko got bitten by a bloody big bull ant.

The Promised Land circuit.  So peaceful... until a bunch of dickheads on their dirt bikes tore past.  See!  I really was in a hideous mood!

Spectacular, refreshing and calm... exactly what I needed!

Next time we are taking inflatable mattresses, deck chairs and esky and Billy.  Niiiice!
It's like mini rapids!

I think I've nearly pulled myself out of the bullshit that is PMSing by looking at these photo's.  The best part is everything here is within an hours drive.  And this is why we call it the 'lucky country'... probably not really, but it damn well should be!

First off, OUTSTANDING photos! I can't wait til the day I get to visit Australia.

Secondly, isn't it funny how relieved you are when you realize that it's That Time? I had that happen to me last week... well, no wonder I've been such an emo wreck!

And lastly, I freaking HATE ants. I can't even imagine what a bull ant looks like. Sounds awfully large and terrible.

At least I'm skinny said...

That beach is amazing. So jealous. I love your hair too. Kinda wierd. Sorry.
