HARDY'S ARE IN AIRLIE BEACH, GREAT BARRIER REEF, AUSTRALIA

 

WE HAVE BEEN TRAVELLING FOR 4 DAYS UP THE EAST COAST OF AUSTRALIA ON OUR WAY TO CAIRNS.  WE ARE 2/3 THE WAY THERE AND HAVE STOPPED FOR A COUPLE OF DAYS AT AIRLIE BEACH WHICH IS IN THE HEART OF THE GREAT BARRIER REEF.  BEAUTIFUL WHITE SAND BEACHES AND ISLANDS WITH SOME OF THE BEST DIVING AND SNORKELLING IN THE WORLD.  WE WILL BE TAKING A CRUISE AND DIVE TOMORROW ON WHITEHAVEN BEACH AND HAMILTON ISLAND.  THE SAND IS SNOW WHITE AND IS COMPOSED OF 98% SILICA.

THE SURROUNDING AREA IS VERY MOUNTAINOUS AND TROPICAL WITH VERY LUSH VEGETATION AND FAUNA.  MANY EXOTIC BIRDS AND ANIMALS.  THE NOISES OF THE BIRDS MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE YOU ARE DEEP WITHIN THE AFRICAN JUNGAL.  WE SAW HUNDREDS OF KANGAROOS ON OUR TRIP HERE, UNFORTUNATELY MOST WERE ROADKILL AND APPARENTLY MILLIONS OF AUSTRALIAN ANIMALS MEET THEIR END THIS WAY, MOSTLY IN THE OUTBACK.  THE PEOPLE WE HAVE MET SO FAR HAVE BEEN VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL, REALLY DOWN TO EARTH.

THE TIME HERE IS 14 HOUR AHEAD OF TORONTO TIME.  WE ARE FINALLY USED TO THE TIME CHANGE, BUT IT TAKES SEVERAL DAYS TO REALLY ADJUST.  SO FAR WE ARE HAVE ING A SLOW PACED, RESTFUL HOLIDAY.  GOING TO WALK TO TOWN NOW TO VISIT THE SATURDAY MORNING MARKET.
