Location: Whitsunday Islands
Today, we got up around 8 am, which doesn’t seem late but compared to other days, 8 was a treat. We started the day by wandering a peninsula in the Whitsunday islands which was gnarly because we were surrounded by water on all sides of the peninsula. While on the peninsula, we climbed over tonnes of rocks to see baby sharks, rays, and turtles… we were not fortunate enough to see such creatures, but we did see about three humpback whales spurting water from their spouts while on their journey up North. Seeing the whales was a highlight of the day, we had wanted to see them the whole time we were in the Whitsundays. After everyone was back on the boat from the peninsula, we sailed back to Airlie beach. Once we docked the boat at Airlie beach, we got to walk around town and shop for a bit. The town was beachy and small but rad. We then spent one more night on the boat and had the best pizza ever for dinner. We ended the night by stargazing and spotted a few shooting stars.
