Today, I headed further up the coast toward Airlie Beach. Not much to report as today was purely driving. One thing I hadn't done previous to my trip was to mark out in km, how far it was to the Whitsundays....in summary, it's far! It was a long, tiring drive and you have to keep your wits about you as most of it is single lane. Many coffee and comfort stops later I made it about 600km up the road as far as Tannum Beach which I randomly chose as my overnight stopover, simply as it had the words tan and beach in the title. I was not in the mood to slum it in a hostel or campsite so chose a motel down by the beach..90 bucks a night..that'll do nicely. I couldn't have picked a better spot - air con room with en suite, sea view, swimming pool..this was more like it. I made the most of what was left of the late afternoon sunshine and headed down the beach for a quick dip and a laze on the sands, then took a dip in the pool on the way back to the room. The perfect refreshment for the long distance traveller.
