The Sails on Horseshoe is a great spot to stay at the lovely Horseshoe Bay on Magnetic Island.
The hosts, Chris and Alastair, are lovely people who are extremely gracious and accommodating.
The rooms are spacious townhouses, over two levels, which are just lovely. The beds were comfortable and it was great having a bathtub!
There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, and I'd highly recommend this hotel!

I think I last posted a blog entry at about half past midnight on Friday (7 August) morning. That was the night that Soph and I camped out in Auckland airport for 16 hours. It was a long old slog, and we ate way too much junk food (McDonald's and Subway, and pastries from the coffee shop in between). Unfortunately, check in for our flight to Cairns didn’t open until about 4am, so we had to spend the majority of the night in the bit of the airport before the departures lounge (i.e. ...
... trip. We went to picnic bay just in time to watch a wedding occurring just off the beach. That evening was a rather chilled affair with no entertainment being held apart from the French chef hitting on Zoe!

... Clay Fire Pit which we have enjoyed for the last 3 nights sitting around till late at night with our Aussie friends.
Today we headed north a mere 10kms to another cool free bush camp at Rollingstone. I'd say around 30 vehicles here tonight and was full by mid afternoon . It's been a tad cold the last few days and overnight last night dropped to 5 degs ... days are still in the early to mid twenties so that helps once you thaw out. Will be here for a couple days all going well ...
After stocking up our cool box and little boot full of food and drink we set off on our road trip leaving Cairns heading south towards Brisbane. The drive out of the humid heat of Cairns was great with awesome views out to sea and up into the bright lush green tropical rain forested hills. After a few hours we had our first little stop to stretch the legs and to make a sandwich. We stopped at Mission beach which was a pretty little quiet ...
... a swim
before lunch back at the Caravan Park. After the 1hr swim we went for a walk along the beach and then a dusk drive along the town common.
For dinner we went to the Cowboys Leagues club where we were just in ime for the Townsville
Crocks to hit us up for raffle tickets ( we didn't win anything so I assume it was rigged). I had a great seafood Plate and Michelle had Barrumundi.
