I went sailing round the Whitsunday Islands from Airlie Beach. I absolutely loved the trip it was so much fun. We were on the boat for 3 days and 2 nights it was great experience. The first day we went to whitehaven Beach which is one of the top ten beaches in the world. This Beach was beautiful the sand was so fine and it wasnt hot at all. Apparently there is no metal in the sand on that beach so it doesnt get hot. I never new there was metal in sand but i do now lol. We spent the day on the Beach and took photos and chatted to each other getting to know each other. I have to admit i was with a great bunch of people on the boat. When it got later we got back on the boat and the skipper parked the boat in a cove (i dont know what you do with boats i know it isnt parking them but you know what i mean) We had a right feast of food i was loving it. The next day we went out to the great barrier reef, we went to Bait Reef. The journey was so choppy i thought i wasnt going to get any sleep. But when you get there the reef makes like a barrier around the boat and the sea is so calm its unbelieveable really. We all had a free dive so i thought right i am going to give it another go. I loved it, the dive instructor was totally different to the guy in Cairns and i loved the dive. I then paid for another dive because i liked it that much and i saw alsorts. I saw Turtles which were my favorite. Straight away i thought of finding Nemo when they are on the Australia currant haha It was kind of like that as well but not. The turtle was swimming through a cave like thing, basically the reef was high up at each side but really deep waters. We swam with the little fella it was so much fun there was only us and him there. I saw nemo as well yay. I know where Nemo lives now so i can find him when ever i want haha. We saw sharks, not like this one though haha. We did a dive at 5:30am which was brilliant everything under the sea was awake. The fish that are awake at night were still up. The fish that are awake all day were up. So everything was down there. The sun comes up about 4:30am so it was light but it was great. I am definately going to do some diving again in different countries to see what is down there. You feel like you are a fish when you get into the swing of it, it is great. The third day after the 5:30am dive we did some sailing. I never thought that would be fun but it was. The boat was rocking all over the place. We helped with the sails which was fun. I think i know what i am doing on a sailing boat now im a pro haha only kidding.
I am now back in Airlie Beach and this place is great as well. There is a lovely lagoon down by the sea that you can swim in. The hostel i am staying in is really nice as well. Although the first night i stayed here i had some french people in my room that came back at 1am, i was asleep because i had to be up at 6am. They were being so noisy and laughing and joking, playfighting. I was going mad they didnt shut up until well after 4am. Some people have no manners what so ever. They were throwing up everywhere and when i woke up in the morning there was sick all in the bathroom that they hadnt cleaned up. Well i got my own back anyway. When my alarm went off i didnt bother turning it off kept it going for ages haha. Then me and the two English girls that had to be up at 6am also put the TV on talked as loud as we could, Packed making as much noise as we could. Called them disgusting people leaving sick all over the place. We could tell they were getting annoyed but darnt say anything because what they had done the night before. Treat others as you would want to be treated i have been taught.
Anyway i have caught up on my blogs now. I am totally up to date although i know i need to get my pictures on i still have Thailand pictures to upload haha it just takes ages but i will try my best to do it over the next few days then i am completely up to date. Im leaving for Harvey Bay tonight so should get there 9am tomorrow morning (That is Tuesday for me lol)
Lots of Love
