Unfortunately I spent most my internet time uploading photos and videos, so not much time to write.
I went on the 10 hour cruise around the Whitsunday Islands. It was so unbelievable gorgeous!!! Went to Whitehaven Beach while out there as well. There was this horrible Canadian girl on the boat who talked non-stop the entire time to anyone that would listen. I effectively fended her off by giving her dirty looks, lol! They had free wine and beer on the boat as well as free food so the whole group ate tons of food and drank all day. It was great fun!
I am in Mission Beach today. We got in last evening and then are leaving for Cairns tomorrow afternoon. There is another group of Ozxposure at the campground we are at, but they suck compared to our group :-)
I saw the most amazing sunrise this morning. My alarm went off at 6:15am and I got up and went outside and coming in right over the beach ('cause you can see the beach from where we are camping) was the sunrise. The colors were great. I was gonna grab my camera, but didn't want to disturb Simon in the tent any more than I already had.
I put up a bunch of pictures and also videos today. I tried to get as much up as I could.
Mission Beach is a cool place. It is surrounded by rainforrest, so everything is super green and lush. That also means there are more snakes and spiders, however, so I have become slighly paranoid. Normally they don't bother me, but here they are mostly deadly, so I'd rather not run into them.
