Well the tourist are out in their droves, there is a big Cruise Ship that has come in, well not real close in as it's very shallow here but they are anchored off a bit and their Ferry's are going back and fourth, man there is a lot of action happening.

I am really happy we have left Airlie Beach it would be horrible there today with all the crowds.
Yesterday we went for a long walk along the foreshore into the heart of Airlie, man has it changed, I was here 31years ago in another life.

Back then most of it was just dirt roads, with a few shops here and there it had a nice feel about it, it still has a nice feel today just different.
It would be a great place to have a holiday, no matter what age you are it seems to cater for it all, they have the most fantastic outdoor pool/play area for kids, then they have a few night clubs here and there and lovely resorts, than lots of back packer places, it just seems to have it all, who ever planned this done a great job.

The day before we did are dreaded grocery shopping, we were running late getting going and had to dingy a fair way away from the shopping centre, as we could not go into the beach that is near it as it was a really low tide, when I say low tide I really mean low there is a difference of around 3 meters, you just can't get your dingy in close enough to shore.
So then we had the problem of will we walk and take a few hours to get there and risk the shops being closed or taxi it.
We decided on a taxi, I tell you the cost of it was almost more than our groceries, but what can you do, one thing it made the trip a lot less painful and in no time we were back on the boat sipping cocktails.

So our biggest decision today is which Island are we going to explore first.... haha its a hard life.
Serious this has to be one of the best cruising places in the world, in a few hours you can be at any number of islands, I know we are not in the high tourist season so it makes it more peaceful, but it really is a pretty part of the world.
I'm saying this at the moment as the ocean is all calm and very little wind, this can change any minute and I'll be back bitching about the horrible seas....haha

Well tomorrow is another day.
