my trip to paradise...

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
As some of you know, Chris & I are expecting our first child in just over 2 months time. Therefore we decided that we needed to take a trip before this and what better place to go to than the Whitsunday's in Queensland.
The Whitsundays are a bunch of islands in the north or Australia, and many of you would associate this with the Great Barrier Reef. It most certainly is paradise up there.
Its all so perfect as my best friend and her husband live there so we try and go up there to see them whenever we can.

Many of you have asked to see some pictures of our trip - so here goes

The first night we arrived we stayed on an island called Hamilton Island and this was the view from our window (the tide was on its way out)


The Beach on Hamilton Island.


One of the many pools overlooking the ocean.


Another pool.


My best friend Kerrie & husband Tom. This was taken on Sunday during lunch at a resturant overlooking the ocean. The lunch was called a "long lunch" and it seriously was long.... 8 courses in 4 hours!!!


Tom works on one of the islands in the water activities area so on one of the days we went over there and chris got to do some parasailing




Chris looking relaxed on our way back to the mainland in our own private boat.


View from the boat on the way back to the mainland.

We decided on one of the days we would go snorkling in the great barrier reef, but thought it much better to fly there in a seaplane...


some views of the reef from the air








we flew in to a secluded boat in the middle of the reef where we spent a couple of hours snorkling


hill's inlet - isnt it gorgeous - unfortunatly my photos dont do it justice


whitehaven beach


view of one of the islands from the air


and finally - a photo of Kerrie & I

oh holy cow! These pictures make me so sad, though, because it has always been my dream to visit Australia, and it just teases me.



It is gorgeous, however, and I'm glad you enjoyed yourselves!!!
