White Water and Last Goodbyes

Today started off to be an early day waking up at 5:30am to go white water rafting down the Tully River. Oh how fun it was starting off with category 4 rapids called the Alarm Clock to wake us up. After that we went down a few more creatively named rapids and ended up at one called Instructor’s revenge. What’s instructor’s revenge you ask? Well they altar the weight of the raft so that everyone in the raft flips out… I managed to stay in getting pushed out moments later by my counselor Liam. I later got him back sacrificing myself to get him in the water. After 12km downstream everyone was exhausted. Everyone slept on the bus ride home. After we got to the motel we went to the grocery store and stocked up on energy drinks to pull an all-nighter. So we could spend all night together writing our lifeworks cards and saying our last goodbyes. After eating delicious pizza and writing our cards we have the rest of the night to say goodbye and plan what lies ahead for next year. Goodbye Australia!!!
