The Kiwi Connection

We were so excited when Sandra and Karen decided to visit, and what better place to be than in the Whitsunday’s. Unfortunately they brought the Kiwi weather with them and we had strong winds and the coolest days since winter. Looking on the bright side, at least they had to wear clothes on the beach.

I’m not sure if Sandra and Karen had images of sunbathing on white beaches sipping cocktails? Hopefully not, as the activities included clambering through the bush in search of pink ribbons, climbing mountains, playing archery and scaling coconut trees to name but a few. The milk from the coconut was lovely and sweet on the first hot day we had… the day after you got home!

Now I know where Simon gets his rebellious nature from! I thought I was going to have to bail Karen, Sandra and Simon out of gaol after they blatantly ignored the no access signs in an attempt to see the Hill Inlet lookout. We decided after their near escape from the law to visit Whitehaven instead, enjoying the only sunny day picnicing on the beach. So you don’t feel short changed, we went back and took a picture of the view for you.

We had a great night out at South Molle with our friend Des in company, went oystering, visited Aboriginal caves and spotted whales.

We had a great time and hope to see you back soon!
