Airlie Beach

Monday we we went out to the reef, Deirdre and I enjoyed our first snorkle. Nearly bumped into reef shark while rounding a corner and I’m still not sure which of us got the bigger fright. I remembered the camera after that, and hopefully I have a picture of a Tortoise and some other fish. All in all, it was unbelievably fantastic.

Tuesday morning we were up at 4am to go ballooning. What a blast! I did two 30 minute flights, and the landings were less bumpy than Aer Lingus! We departed Cairns after that, stayed in Townsville last night, and arrived in Airlie beach just before lunchtime (Wednesday).

We are heading out to Long Island for the night to chill, have some beers and generally to relax.

Only 2100K left to run to Sydney 🙂
