We know its been a while but we are trying to catch back up and upload photos- so just bare with us
WhitSundays was our next trip- this was a 3 day 2 night trip on a sailing boat- which was the first time both me and Tess had been on a boat overnight so we weren't too sure how it was going to be. When we arrived at the harbour there were lots of nice new white yachts and then there was our boat the Witehaven-which was a small wooden looking saling boat- just as nice but in different ways. Our group was ful with 23 people and only 3 males. We got told where we going to sleep and me and tess got the little room just as you come down the stairs, we weren't sure it was a good one, but we soon realised it was on of the best as it would not be as hot.
The weather was not great so this meant a pretty rough sea, our first stop was to go snorkeling-and this meant another sexy wetsuit for us to wear with a hat (photos to be uploaded shortly) This was really good, we saw more fish than last time, a bit tooo many for tess- as we were surrounded by fish.
After the snorkeling we got back on the boat- and now for the best bit- the food- we got tea and biscuits and cakes- tis is a luxury for us so we made sure we made the most of it. And then we got fed about 1 hour later with an afternoon snack- again we made the most of it- anyone would of thought that we hadn't been fed. Some people couln't really enjoy the food as there were gettting sea sick and it was so rough.
We got to the stop where we were staying overnight and the skipper got us all togther andasked what we all wanted to do the next day as the sea was going to be even rougher- we had 2 options: 1- go the calmer way and see a waterall or 2- go through the really rough sea and go to WHitehaven beach. Most people wanted to do the first option but 2 girls said they paid to go to Whitehaven beach and thats what they wanted to do- so thats what we were going to do. After that we got fed AGAIN- then just had a few drinks and went to bed
The decision to go to whitehaven still annoyed alot ofpeople, especially as we had to wake up at 6:30, and it took us 3 hours in rough sea to get there with alot of people being sick. The girls taht wanted to go just sat on the beach with their towels around their head and wanted to leave after 15 min- but rob the deck hand just laughed and said no we had to stay for another 2 hours. The rest of us enjoyed the beach and i saw a small shark and a sting ray and me and tess took lots of photos as the novelty of the camera's still hadn;t worn off.
After going to whitehaven we had lunch and then about 15 min after we finished we went snorkeling again- prob not the nbest thing to do after jut eating. Me and tess for some reason were in hysterics and got water in our masks/snorkels and looked like we were nearly drowning- as its hard to sort your mask out and keep your feet from hitting the coral. lol it looked very funny. We got swarmed by fish again on the way back to the boat and I saw a jelly fish- not good. Then it was raining which meant the sexy bright yellow rain coats came out- me and tess looked like twins- lol .
Guess what happened after the snorkeling- you guessed it- more food- lol- we weren;t hungry but this didn't stop us. After that we went to our overnight stop after tha. Me and tess decided to start drinking the goon (cheap wine) early and soon everyone followed. Another meal came and the we all decided it would be a great idea to start spelling things out with our bodies- first was YMCA and then it was Whitsundays (but it didn't really work).
The next morning we just woke up an headed back to Airlie beach- where we were going to be homeless untill our night bus as we didn;t have a hostel- luckily- livvy offered to put is up and we got to have a shower- it was sooo nice.
We got on the night bus at 9pm- was nt a journey we were looking forward to- as it was 13 hours long bbut then there was a car acceient which delayed us further 3 hours.
Until next time- take care
