Qld-Airlie Beach

My cousin Jeff and his wife Sue were having their 50th birthday, so Mike and I decided to stay in the area for another week, and spend time with my four long lost cousins. Not very hard to do as this area is stunning.The weather has been glorious so we are either, swimming, walking or bike riding every day. Along the Airlie waterfront they have a huge swimming pool, called "the lagoon"which is free and always being used by tourists and locals.Daz, our neighbour in the caravan park, and Mike went out on a fishing charter and came back with enough fish to feed us for a week. They were two very" happy chappy's."
We also had another special day when we went out on my cousins' lovely old 42 foot wooden boat. He has been busy restoring it and it will be fabulous when he has finished.
We cruised to a lovely quiet bay where we swam, walked on the beach and had the crabs for lunch that we had caught in the Prosepine river a couple of days earlier.
The time here has been very special and I thank my cousin Jeff and his wife Sue so much for their love and hospitality. We will be making sure that we get together on a regular basis from now on. Twenty years between visits is way too long.
While at Airlie we stayed at the Big 4 Adventure Whitsunday Resort. Fantastic! View details in "Our Camping Spots"
