It’s been a little while since our last post because we have been having heaps of fun!
We spent a couple of weeks exploring the Whitsundays but we didn’t take many photos, we’ll get them on the way back south.
Catherine and David came aboard and we had 5 nights in the Whitsundays before heading to Gloucester Passage for the SICYC Vice Commodores Rendezvous. This is like schoolies for seniors! 4 wonderful days of nonstop partying and dressups of course. This year we raised just over 55k for prostate cancer research.
We headed north to Magnetic Island encountering many whales on thr way. This calf was having breaching lessons from mum.
The evening we arrived at Horseshoe Bay our dinghy either floated away or was stolen. After many kind lends of dinghys and uber dinghy rides we finally received our brand new aluminium bottom SKIP dinghy.
While we were waiting Catherine and David helped us explore Magnetic, Herald and Rattlesnake Islands. It really is beautiful up here. Ali arrived for a 3 week visit so we took her to Fantome, Orpheus and Hitchinbrook Islands. The waterfall at Zoe Bay on Hitchinbrook was gorgeous and swimming in fresh water with trout was amazing.
We are currently at the Breakwater Marina in Townsville doing boat jobs and will head back to Magnetic Island tomorrow for a while before heading south to pick Hamish up at Airlie Beach for a quick dash around the Whitsundays again.
Freya says stay tuned ⛵⚓🏝🍹
