Relaxing by the Pool...
This morning I finally got smart and didn't schedule anything in the
morning. Instead, I had breakfast with a bunch of friends, then we went in search of
the pool so I could soak, relax, and have a drink. We found the pool (and the hot
tub!) so I sat in the tub and read a book for a while.
After a little relaxation, we got dressed and went on our half-day tour of
Jungle Girls, Clear Pools and Other Stuff
Walking through the jungle of Frasers
was utterly beautiful. The island is basically one giant sand bar, so the soil was
very sandy and the various creeks weren't like other
bubbling brooks. The water was absolutely silent: it was kind of eerie!
Also along this walk, Hege got the idea to start
climbing trees and pose in her bikini top: what a wild woman!
There was a cool tree along the
walk that had been hollowed out by lightening or
something: it was large enough to hold at least 10 of us in the base: got some great
We also heard the story of Frasers Island: it was named after Mrs. Fraser, who was
shipwrecked there and captured by the aborigines. She claimed that one of the chiefs
of the tribes fell for her, and they forced her to commit "unspeakable acts"
until she was freed. She later told the story to whomever wanted to hear as a circus
The Aborigines also have stories about her: they also claim that the chief
of one of the tribes fell for her, but most of the rest of the story is rather different.
I guess Mrs. Fraser really enhanced the story when she was working at the circus...
After the walk, we went for a swim in MacKenzie
Lake, one of the larger freshwater lakes on the island. It was utterly clear,
and a bunch of us dove in for a swim. Luke suggested an alfresco swim, and Suzie was
the first to comply by taking the bottom of her bikini off! (Hmmm....) The
rest of us waved our suits in the air for a sec (not to worry, the rest of us was under
water), and then put them back on (no point in scaring the natives!). I tell you,
getting a wet bathing suit back on is a *lot* harder than taking it off.. :-)
We swam a little more (with Luke wearing Suzies top as a hat: crazy
couple), and had some snacks consisting of some absolutely delicious bread and syrup.
Dinner and Dingos
We had dinner at the Sand Bar restaurant that night, and then Mike,
Chantal, myself, Luke and Suzie all went to the hot
tub to relax after a hard days relaxation. There was a formal dinner going on across
in the main restaurant (with a TERRIBLE lounge singer...) so we got to watch the chefs
dropping rolls as they rolled trays of food past the pool. About this time, Luke
related to us his infamous Steamer Story! (Luke, if I have details wrong, please send me a
The Steamer Story
***Gross & Kinky Bit Alert***
A friend of Lukes was in the throes of a passionate 69 (if you don't know what that is,
find a 13-year-old and he will tell you) with a lady friend when he decided to get a
little, well, kinky (kinkier, actually). He put a finger up where the sun doesn't
shine to add a little extra stimulation. Apparently the girl went wild at this,
really moaning and loving all of it. However, when he "pulled out", so to
speak, she reared back and unloaded a, well, a "steamer" right on the guys
Well, some other friends heard the guy screaming "Get off! Get off!" coming
from the door, and came over to investigate. The first thing they see is a girl
running out of the room, naked and crying. But the SECOND thing was the guy coming
out, walking while leaning back at the same time (as if trying to separate his chest
from the rest of his body) with a large "steamer" on his chest, saying "Get
it off! Get it off!"
***End Gross & Kinky Bit***
While we were recovering from that, Mike spotted a dingo wandering by the
pool! He of course jumped in the pool after it and tried to follow it, walking right
by the formal diners, dripping wet and wearing only a bathing suit (we asked him what he
said: "Hi"). It was nasty getting out of the tub, though: it was a bit chilly
Well, we made it back to catch the last shuttle back to the lodges.
I talked with my roomates for a bit before going off to bed. Tomorrow I dine with
