hello everyone so sorry we havent updated our blog recently we have been travelling down the coast and are about 3 weeks behind because we have been so busy!So here is what we have been upto about 3 weeks ago!thanks to everyone who has wrote no our wall much appreciated:)
So sit back and relax and here is what the Kangaroo and Koala has been up to................ enjoy:)
So we left Cairns and headed for a place called Mission beach for one night and stayed in a lovely hostel (as good as a hotel!!) for one night then travelled to Townsville where we caught a ferry to Magnetic island for 3 nights. We arrived to find the island only has 4 days of rain and i think for the whole of our stay we had 2 of them.It was the first time we had seen rain in about a month(life is tough!) We found a nice walking area where we saw Koalas on the wild! They are such lovely animals. We saw a baby one with its mother and it was lovely to see them in their natural habitat. On the second day the weather wasnt fab but we decided to hire a 'barbie car' to get around the island. Over half of the island isnt used so there is only one main road throughout so despite the rain we went exploring and found some nice bays to have a walk around. The car was so much fun to drive. It was an open top car(if you can call it a car!) it was rather cold and didnt help that the sun wasnt shining but all will be revealed when we upload some more photos:)We had a free voucher for 1 hours Kayaking so we thought we would brave the blustery wind and rain and headed with a 2 man Kayak. We were already soaked before we entered the sea and on Megan trying to sit in she feel over the other side head first into the sea!!Not impressed we then carried the Kayak all the way back to the beach to get a 1 man for Leanne to try. The wind was making the side of the Kayak bash againest our legs and we still have cuts to prove it! So there we were pissing ourselves laughing, Leanne not able to see out of her glasses and Megan soaked with stones in her ears from falling in! Leanne sat in with Megan holding it forgetting the paddle on the beach so there was Leanne bobbing up and down on the sea waves crashing down on her and Megan trying to hold the Kayak and reach for the paddle at the same time. At this point we had both had enough and had used up our hours voucher trying to get in the Bloody thing so unsuccessful we had a shower to warm up!!An eventful and funny story!
We left Magnetic Island and headed to Airlie Beach to boopk our sailing trip.................................... watch this space :)
take care everyone we wil write again soon:)
lots of love xxxx
