Airlie Beach sleep in day! What a luxury, no early pack up & leave, no tour nothing! Bill makes pancakes for brekkie & we chill. Kids get to play, ride bikes, jumping pillow even a quick dip in a very cold pool! We did venture out for a quick drive to pick up our photos from the cruise yesterday and have a look around Airlie Beach. Wow this place has changed so much and the development looks to be continuing construction works continue through town as we drive to Shute Harbour. Progress doesn't seem to have got this far though, with a few run down motels, some even closed down; Shute Harbour seems to have only a few cruises still running from here but it mainly looks like cargo for Hamilton Island and a Ferry service. Heading back to the van to the welcoming smell of casserole dinner cooking (the bonus of staying put for the whole day I can use the slow cooker!) 3 loads of washing dried (clean bedding!) Kids spend the rest of the day riding on go-carts we hired from reception so we sit back and relax……..Kids get back to dinner dished up with a remark from Claire; Oh yum a "decent Dinner"!! Guess you can’t ask for more than that!
