Hello blog readers!
So after we left Townsville it was a 4 hour bus journey down to Airlie Beach. Went out on the sunday night we got here for some drinks with some girls that we have made friends with which was cool! The next day the weather wasnt so great so we treated ourselves to a nice long lie in and then spent the rest of the day doing washing and playing card games! We got all our Whitsundays sailing trip booked up aswell which didnt sail untill wednesday so on tuesday we went for a walk down the strip in Airlie Beach to look in all the shops and then sat by the lagoon to work on our tans :op
Then came wednesday when it was time to set sail for the islands! unfirtunatley the weather took a turn for the worse but we still managed to have a reall good time! (if you google habibi whitsundays, you can see pictures of the boat we were on!) there was only 13 of us on it for the first night and we had such a laugh playing drinking games that the crew made up! altho we cant tell u about them cause theres a rule that what happens on the boat stays on the boat haha! We had a mini adventure tho over to an aborigional grsave yard in the pitch black which was interesting to say the least!
The next morning the weather was realy bad, throwing it down with rain and the sea was really really rough! 6 people on our boat were sick (dont think all the alcohol from the night before helped really!) we made it to whitehaven tho (google it!) the beach was amazing in the rain but it would have been so much better if it was sunny! the sea had calmed downa a bit by this point and then we had lunch and sailed round to a reef to do snorkeling which was prety cool! Next stop was Hook island which again would have looked better in the sunshine but oh well! Stayed on the boat again last night and sailed back to Airlie Beach this morning and typical, its sunny now we are back on land!! Have been sunning ourselves by the lagoon again today (and dont worry mum im wearing lots of suncream!! in fact i had to buy a new bottle cause i used all mine!)
We are staying in Airlie Beach tonight (going for an after boat party with all our new sailing crew friends!) and tomoro night and then going down to Hervey Bay for our Fraser Island trip, with a stop over at Krombit Cattle Station on the way!
Will update when we can! Also, having issues trying to upload pictures for you all to nose at! the internet is expensive and slow to use over here!! will see what we can do tho! Hope everything at home is all good!
Lots of love Cat and Zoe xxxxxxxx
