Island hopping

I thought I'd better get back to telling you about my holiday....it seems so long ago, now.

On the Wednesday we went Island hopping. We caught a ferry from Abel Point Marina, which is about a 7 min walk from our apartment. We decided to do a 2 island hop to Daydream Island and South Molle Island. Not such good weather..a bit overcast and a little breezy! First stop was Daydream Island, which is a 25 min boat ride away. We spent the morning here and had lunch in the beautiful restaurant. It's quite a big island, with great accomodation, restaurants, cafes, Mini golf, Water sports and a big outdoor living aquarium, which is very cool. There are a couple of restaurants built over it, with heaps of beautiful coloured fish, starfish and coral.
Jase and I played Around Australia Mini golf. That was lots of fun. We are both so competitive...(LOL)
From the other side of the island we walked back over to the main part for lunch and decided to do the rainforest Walk...good idea at the time, but showed how unfit I am...huffing and puffing! It was quite steep, and got the legs working.

Here's a few pics of Daydream.

Jase and I really liked Daydream. We could definately spend a week there with the kids.

Then the ferry picked us up at 1.15pm to take us over to South Molle. That only took 7 mins on the boat. They are very close. It was very quiet around South Molle. They had a blackout the night before and had lost power for about 12hrs. We had a game of table tennis in the bar area, which I whipped Jase's butt 3-0. That was a bit exciting...especially after he beat me at Mini golf - not by much though. Had a few cocktails, then a swim to cool off.

Here's a few pics of South Molle.

All of the scenery really is from a postcard. It's just beautiful!

Then we headed back to Airlie Beach, for dinner, a few drinks and to watch the Mighty Maroons beat NSW in the State of Origin!!
