... and were rewarded with coffee and cookies back on the boat. I got to chatting with one of our guides and learned she was Canadian and had come to Australia to teach but then meet her boyfriend in the Whitsundays and was now working with him on the boat.

We also went out to a fresh water swimming hole where the kids swam with turtles and fish. We spent our 15th wedding anniversary having breakfast at a cafe overlooking the ocean.
