Whitsunday Islands

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.

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!
