and it was pretty rough (think as tail-end of a cyclone further north of Cairns)
In the afternoon went to another bay where we all went snorkelling in the shallow coral reef. Was great coral and absolutely thousands of fish - felt like we were in Piccadilly Circus. Visibility not great due to weather but was still fantastic and not dissimilar to what we had seen diving in some respects. Back to the boat for chiling on deck with our box of wine (no glass allowed) and a sort of sunset followed by a great meal. Were shattered by about 10pm and felt like we should struggle to stay up for a while but didnt last long!
Up next day to better weather and calmer seas which was good so managed to do a bit of sunbathing before we went to our snorkel/dive site. Good thing on this trip was got a free dive so we did and had a pretty good dive although visibility was still not great and occasional lack of sun didnt help but was still great coral. Later in the afternoon we went on another dive which was like diving through a load of coral catacombs as we dodged the pillars of coral and swam through holes that we are actually quite tight
Next morning up and spent last few hours sunbathing on deck as we got the sails out (well not us exactly although we helped) and glided our way back towards Airlie Beach. That was pretty cool and glad we actually finally did some sailing!!
Having said our goodbyes to crew and our fellow passengers we were back on dry land again and I was swaying again. Had a couple of hours to sort ourselves out before getting yet another bus (which we were dreading and not just cos of the films) to Noosa. This journey was from 17.30 until 10.10 next morning on the coach and the bus kindly stopped at midnight and 4am and we all had to get off to have a meal stop (like we felt like eating at these times!). Having said that we did get some sleep and did get to watch Madagascar which was a lot better!
