The Whitsundays Posted by Andrea on October 11, 2003 in Airlie Beach
Hi everyone! Chelsey and I just returned a few days ago from our sailing trip out to the Whitsunday Islands. We had the best time ever!! The crew was amazimg, the food was great, there were 6 other Canadians on the boat with us. We had a blast. We went snorkelling, and we went diving off the boat, and we swang off ropes into the water, and I saw a freaky jellyfish right infront of my face (don't worry it wasn't a dangerous one) and then we went for a long sail out in the middle of the ocean. It was awesome...the boat tips over so much that you have to hold on to the lines so that you don;'t slide down the boat. And the waves were huge...some people got soaked. Then we went and put the anchor down at Chalkies Beach. Abd had a great night partying and getting to know everyone. Then the next day we spent the day at Whitehaven Beach...pure white sand. All I can say is AMAZING!! Crystal clear water that was really warm. We all played a big game of Ultimate Frisbee on the beach. Then we sailed again and I got to see Julia Roberts' house. It was pink and ugly. I even got to raise the sail!!!!!! Yes, I am now officially a sailor. It was soo heavy though. But that's all I've got for now...can't wait to tell you all the stories in person.
