6 up for adventure

Sat 19 Apr 2008
Having had such a good time on the water, last time, or was that the time before that, I don't know - can't remember the last time I did not have fun on the water, it was time to do it again.

6 up this time, we made our way to the islands. Lea, another Canadian import had a rough time of the crossing the passage, bound for Nara Inlet. How dare someone get seasick on dot.com... it was not a great day, but I have seen far worse.

Anyway to make her feel better, we needed to put her on the beach so she could steady her head and stomach..... so what better way but to drive Dot.Com onto the beach and let her dry out for the day. The beach just on the right inside the Nara Inlet entrance looked good for it, and proved just about perfect.

We spent the day there before heading down to  Cid Harbour. The weather was not that good, so the adventure needed to be increased.... Whitsunday Peak became the goal.  It was a great way to exercise and despite the cloud a worthwhile site... from the different look outs you can see most of the way around the island group, to see 31 islands from the 74. Unfortunately, Jo had twisted his ankle the prior day and had to sit on the bench for that one.

Next up, Hamilton island for some pizzas and cocktails. The night club was a buzz too... that evening we shared it with that "Where the bloody hell are you" lass, which meant the dress code was enforced and staff names were being taken....

For the final day out we bashed our way to Whitehaven beach, which a few big waves wetting the occasional bunk and crew. It was a restful place to be after the night before...

More of the same adventure on Dot.Com.... :-)
