Whitsunday Day 5 - 6

Day 5 - we decided to stay another day in Cid Harbour as the winds were still up.  Others decided to join us, this boat was huge.  We have researched since returning home and believe this belongs to a former Grand Prix motorcycle road racing World Champion.  If my husband had known at the time I am sure he would have taken our dinghy over for a visit. 

Day 5 - Since we had another day at Cid Harbour we thought we would do the second walk which was a lot quicker and flatter but still a very pretty view at the end.  

Day 5 - This is Dugong Bay as the name suggests you are meant to see Dugongs from time to time here.  None appeared while we were there.

Day 5 - our neighbours grew during the day… just over 60 boats.  Amazing how quiet it still was with so many people around us.  The anchor lights looks so pretty at night time.  Our photos later in the night were too blurry to share.

Day 6 - with this rainbow it just had to be a good day.  Was so tempting to motor on over and find that pot of gold. :-)

Day 6 and the winds had calmed down to 10 - 15 knots so we headed to Tongue Bay where the turtles literally frolicked in the sun.  There looked like four off in the distance, close enough to see but too far to take photos.  They would come up for a breath then roll from side to side getting a bit of sun before diving again.  We also had two large turtles near the boat that eluded us every time we had our camera ready but it was all good fun.

Day 6 - one of our neighbours in Tongue Bay.  A little quieter here only had about ten neighbours overnight.

Another visitor to the boat.

Day 6 - when the tide had come back in and the tourist boats had left we went ashore and took the short walk up to Hill Inlet Lookout.  What a view….yes, sand is that white and the water that blue.

Day 6 - We then headed down the other part of the track which takes you to Betty's Beach.  The sand is so soft and white.  In the shallow lagoons beside us we could see small sharks and sting rays like the one above.

Day 6 - Me on Betty's Beach at Whitehaven Island.

Off to sort the last two days of our wonderful trip.  Back soon.
