I'm home

I'm home after my week away in the Whitsundays. How beautiful is it up there? Airlie beach is a bit of a hub. Lots going on, with heaps of places to eat and drink!! Also a stop for the overseas visitors - especially backpackers! They're everywhere!!

Jason and I had a great time away. It was nice to spend some time, just the two of us. Did some adult things - like a peaceful dinner, slept in and the highlight of our trip...We did our very first Scuba Dive. Now, that was fun! We both had no intention of doing it, but we did a trip to Knuckle reef, on the outer part of the Great Barrier Reef - about 100km out to sea. On the boat on the way out, they were telling us things we could do out on the big pontoon. So, we did it! The reef is spectacular, but what you can see under the water is totally amazing. I'll post some pics, soon.

This week, I'll chat about what we did each break it up a little, or I could go on forever.

We stayed at some new apartments called Marina Shores. They were beautiful. They only opened in March. Our hosts, Lyn and Richard were fabulous, and recommended different things for us to do, which was much appreciated.

Here's a pic of the apartments.

and this is the view from our balcony. Pretty hard to take, hey?

I'll tell you more tomorrow. I'm off to scrap - it's been a while! :)

Chat soon,
Chelle Xx
