Hey, me and sarah are at base backpackers on magnetic island (maggie island). Its an awesome hostel, the little dorms are all in little triangle houses surrounded by tropical gardens, rivers and bridges and terraces. The big bar area is fab, we had a good meal and sat down on the balcony over looking the ocean watching the massive lightning storm- the bolts look white, purple, pink, orange and green, pretty cool to watch.
We hung out at scotty mission beach house this morn and sunbathed (I kinda got burnt on my legs lol, looks funny- im hoping it will even out lol). Went in the pool loads, practiced my beam walking over the pool lol, good fun. We caught our oz exoerience bus at 1pm- driver this time was Sonic, very nice, got on well. We booked our accommodation at base for tonight, even though when we tried to it last night they said they were fully booked (the three magic words people- OZ EXPERIENCE PASSENGER. Being with oz experience gets u loads of deals- including dorm rooms suddenly appearing when they werent available before lol.
The weather this morn was boiling hot and sunny, then it started to pour on the way south from mission beach to townsville- proper storm. Think some of the roaads have floaded again now. Hopefully all ok to carry on tomorrow- the storm mostly headed north and were off south. We took the ferry from townsville to maggie island and got drenched, nice though- still really warm even when its pouring.
Were going to walk around maggie island tomorrow and see what we find, seems beautiful here.
