We couldn't check in until 1pm but we were able to use their showers. We jumped at the chance and by the time we had both freshened up it was check in time. We headed to our room straight away and got settled in. The hostel is really nice and it has a sort of holiday park feel
By mid afternoon we decided to go and explore what Airlie Beach has to offer. We'd overheard some girls talking about a lagoon so we headed there first and we weren't disappointed at all! It was so lovely, a massive pool that overlooks the ocean. We sat down on the faux beach and soaked up some much needed sunshine until the evening.
We went for dinner in a bar just up the road that we had been told did dinner and a drink for $10 - bargain! I got the steak and Rikki opted for the toasted beef sandwich. While we were eating the rain started up again and it brought with it thunder and lightning. Needless to say we got soaked again on our walk home - you'd think we'd have learnt to be prepared by now but we'll always hopeful it will stay dry. Such suckers we are!
The rest of our night was spent relaxing in our dorm. The Swedish girls we were sharing with we're getting ready to go out and annoyingly kept leaving and then knocking to be let back in. That got old very quickly! Luckily they headed off to wherever they were going quite early so we had peace and quiet for the rest of the night.
