There I met Gil , a good friend from home and we hung out for a day and partied at night. The next day I got a shark tooth necklace at the local market which has been my dream since I arrived here. Then , I left for the Whitsunday Islands.
The trip was two nights on a sailing/motor boat with a stop over at White haven beach which is part of the Whitsunday Islands
White Haven is a beautiful white white white beach. The sand is so fine that it feels like silk on your toes. I could have stayed there for ten... no no... twenty days without even noticing. Alas , An hour later I was on the boat again eating another good meal. I can't think of a better way to spend two days than drinking white wine on the deck of a boat. Wait! ... No , nope , can't think of anything better.
After a little bit of snorkeling we began heading back in a minor storm. Actually , I didn't feel sick at all and rather enjoyed the rough seas. This surprised me after feeling bad at both the Kayaks in Milford Sound and the Stewart Island Farry. Maybe it was just a temporary thing and I'm used to it now. I'm sure that my sea wellness abilities will be further tested in the future but meanwhile It's been under control.
Our captain was very funny and an interesting person so a couple of hours were spent figuring him out. The weird thing was though when we came back to the docks. Apparently , eleven stinger suits (suits to prevent you from getting stung) went missing! The police searched our bags and found nothing but suspect some Irish guy that was on our boat and it's too bad that the trip ended like that. No worries though.
Then back to reality , well ... reality for now anyway.
