    Re: Test screening

    It has early issues, but they all do. Hope it can be solved.

    It took them a few days to post this - more pics of Matt, girls and Chris on the tarmac with the helicopter.

    There is a bit of stories from people who were on the beach. Poor Stella was badly stung by a jellyfish.

    A true Australian experience for poor Stella.

    RE: Australia

    Oh no, the poor kid! How awful for her & the whole family. I've never gotten stung but I heard it's extremely painful.

    RE: Australia

    Poor thing...
    i have been stung, and i can tell you it is excruciating, also depending on the type of jellyfish. Here in Florida we've got some gnarly ones. Also a fun fact, if you are ever stung by a jellyfish (Sounds crazy but it's a fact), have a friend, or family member pee on the jellyfish sting. Something about human urine can decrease the pain of the sting and help avoid it from infection.

    RE: Australia

    I thought of that instantly, Hanna, and wondered if it was a myth. Stella might some day be able to tell a "believe it or not" story about Jason Bourne & Thor. Lol, crazy, I know! Kidding, everybody, don't get offended :)

    RE: Australia

    Hahaha!
    Well the "pee trick" certainly worked for me as a kid, thanks to my older sister! It was gross but worth it!
    Totally hilarious Paula! Haha!
    But still poor kiddo.

    Elsa Pataky

    If anyone has instagram and doesn't follow Elsa, now would be a good time to follow.

    She just posted an IG moments video of Matt, Chris and kids riding horses on the beach.

    I've been following her, but I can't seem to find the video! 😢
    I have even refreshed moments several times and it still won't come up...

    It's not a post, just an Instagram Moments video (short clip). It's still up. On my ipad these videos appear at the top of the screen.

    From Elsa's insta story. They will all love the reference to Elsa and Lucy's entourage in the Mail story- they are Elsa's friends from the area who came on the trip.

    And more pics from a lunch at Byron:
    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-4407854/Matt-Damon-enjoys-Byron-Bay-lunch-Chris-Hemsworth.html

    Matt Baiamonte is also there (in the pics linked above and he posted a few days back). Michele Merkin also looks to have joined the group. She posted a comment a few days ago that she may be coming.

    (I have deleted a link to a pic which is just a bad copy of a pic linked above and doesn't give a credit.)

    Re: Photos

    Drove past Byron Bay today on our way up north again. Was hoping to wave to some helicopters or casually walk along the beach for an opportunity to say Hi Matt!! (without seeming like a crazy fan stalker), but no room avail at Top Parks in Broken Head, and Ballina is almost $100 a night just for a tent site. Anyway the thought was there. Sorry to hear about the stingers, some Milo under the stars should fix it (that would be cool if you can pitch a tent in their backyard). Matt, is looking good in Aussie gear. Think you should move here too, BCF has Director chairs with the additional beer stubby cooler holders :)

    How do you like them Easter eggs. M..

    Re: Bluesfest Byron Bay

    I would suspect Elsa is leaking to the press any time they go out. She has a new movie out (bit part) and an interview in a Sunday paper to promote a new hair line. Her best exposure ever.

    and all this time you accused Jennifer Garner of tipping off the paps, well she aint got nothin' on Elsa and clan.

    My question is... how do the paps get such close proximity pics of them at the beach, pubs etc.?

    I didn't get too far north before driving back here (( ❤ )). Waved to a helicopter flying over near Newrybar/Lennox Head as we arrived. Still no availability in BH/Byron, we did have a quick look on the beach this afternoon, I will try again tomorrow. Feeling hopeful, Go Easter Mon-day! :)

    Bluesfest makes for a very busy Byron, I think. Will definitely calm down after the holiday weekend. Not sure if Matt's back in the US for a water.org event on the 21st, or if it is via video link.

    Thanks for info Felicity and iri_na_00, hopefully more sites available today in BH/Byron with people going home Easter long weekend. I woke up this morning to the smell of popcorn :D

    Let me know if you hear any whereabouts (hopefully not the airport lol), I will go for a walk on the beach today, and say hi to Matt for you all if I see him!! :)

    All over. Matt's back in LA (photo at LAX) and Elsa posted a final pic of the friends at Bluesfest. Michele also posted a farewell message.
