Whitsunday Day 7 - 8

Day 7 - we left Tongue bay and motored down to Whitehaven Bay.  Took the dingy over to the beach for a walk……..

.....yes, perfect weather and scenery to celebrate our anniversary.

Me, going for a stroll.

Day 7 - after our walk along the beach we went back to our boat and then motored over to Chalkies Beach and had lunch.  Most of our trip we were travelling over a depth of 40 metres of water just before getting to Chalkies there is a huge hole as it went to just over 100 metres deep then very quickly it was less than 20 metres.  Our entire trip I was in awe of the early settlers who navigated their ways through the same waters without all the fantastic gadgets we had.

Day 7 - after lunch we headed back up to Betty's beach and Hill Inlet Lookout the top end of Whitehaven Bay……low tide this time.

Day 7 - that is our boat to the right by its lonesome.

Day 7 - then we headed back up to Whitehaven bay and anchored for the night and watched the sunset.  What a way to finish our trip…..look how flat the water was.  Amazing.

Day 7 - Sunset

Day 7 - Sunset…….champagne and Neil Diamond playing.

Day 8 - Sunrise the last morning of our holiday.  Water still as flat as a tack.

Day 8 and we are heading back in to Shute Harbour, past Lindeman Island.

Day 8 and past Hamilton Island.
