Still just hanging around this beachie resortie type town...
25.10.2009 - 25.10.2009 25 °C
Another day started with my ritual of walking into town and dining at McD's and using their free internet. It is in a good location right in centre of town. Can watch the early morning hustle and bustle as I sit outside.
Talked to receptionist at Hotel as I scheduled a couple more excursions. She was born an Aussie but grew up in the states. She returned to Australia to get away from the stress. We talked about how much her family hates Peanut Butter and Jelly sandwiches. They think it is disgusting to mix those two items together and she spoke on behalf of Australia that most people here feel that way... lol
Spent time doing more walking around the area. Walked way out of town the opposite direction to see what was that direction. And the answer is Not much! LOL It is part of the Conway National Park that direction so I think if you had a map and knew where you were going there are bushwalking treks around the area. I walked back into town and climbed half of the big hill that has all the properties. The view from there was gorgeous! Once I walked back into town happen to run into Liz whom I met on the boat trip the other day. She came back down to my resort to check out where I was staying and we chatted on the balcony quite a while. We walked back into town and went to the "locals favorite" fish shop and picked up lunch of fried Barramundi and chips (fries). Took lunch down to the park by the shore and sat and chatted for a long time there while enjoying the sites around us. It was very nice temperature sitting in the park and very relaxing.
I had to get back to my room to get ready for my Sunset Cruise that came with my hotel package. This was a very nice two hour cruise on the waters right around the parameter of Airlie Beach. We had our "sparklys" and veggies and just relaxed on the cruise. It was a gorgeous sunset and once it got dark the sky was just gorgeous. There were some folks there from Canada, England, and Melbourne on the trip. Once we got back I hustled down the walkway back to the main town as they had live music that ended at 8 pm. It was a one man band really. The musicians name was "Wahu" and he is from New Zealand. He came over and chatted with me for a while when on break from performing. He was right out side Liz's resort so she came down and we chatted some more (girls talk a lot huh?) After enjoying a drink called "Beautiful" at Cactus Jacks and some nachos I headed on back to my resort for the evening. Internet was not working at my resort though......
Overall a very nice relaxing day!
