Airlie Beach

The Exploration.....

sunny 25 °C

Woke up fairly early this morning anxious to see where I am staying for the week since I arrived in the dark. My room is a nice studio apartment with a balcony overlooking to the far far distance... the coral sea. The immediate view to the left is the construction site of a new Marina. If you look more towards the right it is a slightly better view..... sigh.... The place has two pools and a hot tub. One thing is that it is one of the resorts on the lower side of the hill so I do not have to climb as far getting in and out of the city. ( But Gloria - I will climb the hills for exercise..)

My resort is slightly outside of town so walked down the sidewalk into town to see what was there. As much as most of us hate it... McDonald's is within ten minutes and they have FREE internet!! So McD's becomes your friend when your accommodation does not offer free internet. Airlie is a very commercialized area with shops, hostels, motels, touristy things. There is a nice walkway around the parameter of the water area which is very nice. I plan to do a lot of walking while here to work off all those biscuits that are enjoyed so much here! lol walked for about four hours today!

Spent the afternoon at my resort relaxing. Went into town for dinner at Cactus Jacks.

cruising to Whitehaven Beach tomorrow...
