Christine sold me her Whitsunday's ticket because she had to go home early, so I got a deal on her ticket! I know I'm leaving today, but I thought I should try to document the rest of the trip! Before we left, we got dinner and some cocktails at at place in the cute little beach town on the mainland.
Some pretty trees on the way to the marina.
I'm going to miss tropical flowers!
The "shipwreck" on the way to the marina.
The Whitsunday Islands.
One of our first stops...
Some of my underwater camera's pictures came out...
Back on the boat: me, Alison, Tyler, Jackie
Some sunset photos:
Hahaha. All reading the same ridiculous magazine.
Our lady cap'n:
The moon makes an early appearance:
The next day: (I'm embarassed to say I missed sunrise because I was sooo sleepy!)
From the beach we stopped at to go see Whitehaven beach (that has the most pure soft amazing sand-- 98% silica!)... we had to hike to the other side- it's too shallow to dock or even get close! This beach was ALL amazing coral that had washed ashore-- I'm sorry you can't tell from the photos!
A little spider at the Whitehaven lookout point:
Whitehaven! From above... sooooo gorgeous!
We finally got to go down to the beach...
Back to our original snorkeling locale because the clarity was poor elsewhere...
These HUGE beautiful fish that came right up to the boat when we arrived...
An underwater shot of the amazing fish!
Some underwater shots from the crew's camera:
Back on the boat:
Everyone watching a slide show of that day's photographs and making fun of each other:
Back on the mainland:
Those are all the photos I have from Whitsundays- I'll have at least one more entry, I promise!
