Harvey bay-day 14

Hi guys, so sorry I got mixed up with the dates yesterday was day 13 (19/06) instead of day 12. Today was great. I tried to find this place wich was a cottage and herb farm, it said that it showed old crafts and it had a famous pink cow! (Tin one not real) but I couldn’t find it. I went to were it looked like it was on the map, when I got to the place I checked on google maps, it was another 3 hour walk in land! It was nearly 11 and I didn’t want to walk when the sun was highest in the sky (11,12,1) instead I walked back on the beach. The sea was out so you could walk across the squidgy sand, I stumbled upon rock pools where there were schools of small fish darting around. There was one fish that looked like a baby puffer fish but I’m not to sure. I also spoke to a guy who was taking up the sand through a metal tube, it looked like a long bicycle pump. He told my that he was finding bait for fishing, I can’t remember the name but it looked like a small wight, see through prawn with a lot of legs ,or they might of been pincers I’m not to sure. I went on with my walk and I saw a group of pelicans, unlike the ones in England there back feathers are black and they have really freaky eyes. If you can zoom in to the photo, you’ll see what I mean! 

 After I got back I decided that if I was going be here for a month, I might as well learn how to sail. The sea isn’t choppy so people don’t surf, but the sea is so carm it would be a good place to learn how to surf. Me and this girl called Hanne when to the local boat club but they were closed. I called and left a voicemail so I’ll see what they reply with but I can look for over places to. After that we found a cheesecake shop! It was amazing so many flavours, you could buy a whole cake, half a cake or a quarter. We got a quarter, caramel flavour, delicious. We have a new person in the dorm volunteering, her name is Lori she’s from Canada and lovely. She arrived around the same time as me and very focused on finding work. We are the only ones in tonight as the other two are in rainbow beach and going to noosa tomorrow, it’s there days off. Me and Lori watched the sunset tonight, it was amazing and clearer than the other nights lighting the whole sky. I think I prefer when there are clouds there because they are dark against the pinkie, red sky. It was still stunning though, my phone just doesn’t capture it.
