The past few days we've been out of range of phones and internet again which is why I haven't been able to blog. But I think I can speak for both Captain G and myself when I say we didn't miss anything because we've been in heaven. The wind finally stopped and we've been to and seen some of the most beautiful places I think I've ever been. So instead of my usual "dump" of words here are some pictures and captions of the places we've been and seen and loved.
|Pentecost Island on the way from Lindeman to Whitsunday Island and Whitehaven Beach. No anchorage here and not much usable shelter for yachts but spectacular none the less. You can see its peak all over the area.|
|The view of Whitehaven Beach from the cockpit. When I took this photo I wanted to show the beautiful colour of the water which is a breathtaking aqua blue. But the photo doesn't do it. Wish you could see the colour ... it is stunning.|
|The Captain and Me on the hill at Tongue Bay.|
|The anchorage in Tongue Bay. We saw Dugongs and Turtles in this bay really close to the yacht!!!!!|
|Me on the walk on South Molle with my "hiking" gear. My foot gave me a bit of grief during the walk which was about 3.5km round trip but I made it!|
|A run down room at the South Molle resort...the grounds are kept up pretty much and they bring groups of backpackers here for the weekend but - as you can see - many of the rooms are abandoned.|
That's it. We've had a great time over the past few days...fantastic weather and wonderful places. The weather is forecast to turn nasty again on Wednesday so we'll be moving towards the mainland and plan to be in the Airlie Marina by Wednesday.
