We are now at the buitiful Airlie beach which is just north of Mackey and south of townsville. We only planned on staying here for a few days but were going to stay here for a while as i was offered a job on a boat. We went on a trip to whithaven beach and while we were there got speaking to the owner who happened to be looking for a host on the same trip. So 2 days later i started work on the boat! Its a really nice trip we sail out to whitsunday island and whithaven beach where we take the passagers on a walk up to the lookout then while the passangers are on the beach we prepare lunch its then back on the boat for lunch and we move to a different island hook island where we take the passangers snorkling or if they wish scuba diving i don't actually get to go in the water though. We then have afternoon tea and sail back to airlie its much better than picking onions!! Dan is looking for a job at the moment although he has traveled down to surfers paridise for the weekend so he will be looking properly when he gets back. Dan has finally managed to christen his board he was surfing with liam this morning at long last!
We have also been on a trip to the reef last weekend that was fasinating seaing all the fish and the coral the pictuers dont really show how amazing the colours were but you get the gist of it they were taken from a submarine with a glass bottom we took pictuers under water with a disposable camera but these pictuers carn't go on the site unfortuanatly. The jorney on the way over was really ruff people were being sick all over including me! i have never been sea sick before but this was horrible i should have taken the tablet that was offered to me before we left!!
Not a lot else to report at the moment i'll update the site again soon.
