The camera photos have been downloaded and sorted so now I can share just a few.
Day 1 - our first stop was Nara Inlet.
Day 1 - the showers came and went at Nara Inlet.
Day 2 - brings sunshine to Nara Inlet.
Day 2 - and we visited a little island directly opposite Hayman Island.
Day 2 - we stayed the night at Stonehaven.
Day 2 - our sunset view from Stonehaven
Day 3 - we snorkelled at Luncheon Bay. One of my favourite memories of this trip. Snorkelling back to the boat which was tied to the bouy furthest east. Had to swim over a deep area so I was a little paranoid of what I would see, was watching for these friendly bat fish….just a bit big for my liking. Anyways, in front of me floats past a jellyfish about 10cm so I am busy thinking which way the current is flowing and I would go the opposite so that I would not run into it….next minute a turtle about 80cm - 1m swims right on past and gobbles up the jellyfish I was so worried about. Brilliant.
Day 3 - the Bat fish were friendly.
Day 3 - the seagulls even dropped by to say hi!
Night of Day 3 we spent at Cateran Bay, Border Island. (the winds and swell picked up a little at night and was a bit too rolly for me)
Day 3 - Sunset at Cateran Bay
Day 4 - we headed to Cid Harbour which is very sheltered as the winds were heading up to 20-25 knots. One of our neighbours for the night.
Day 4 - another neighbour…and here I was thinking the boat we were on was pretty big. It was a baby compared to others.
Day - we decided to do the Whitsunday Peak walk. Documented as a 4 hour return trip, we did it in 2 hours. It is hard work though a lot of 'up' - 5km return. The view was awesome at the top. We were anchored just off the left of this photo.
Day 4 - turtles seem to be everywhere at Cid Harbour just out from Sawmill Beach. Cheeky things would pop there head up for a breath and then soon as we had the camera ready they were gone. :-) Kept us amused for a long time trying to capture a shot like this.
I will share more photos tomorrow. There are just too many to share in one post so I have broken it into three posts and even then there are so many more photos I would like to share. Thanks for visiting.
