An Amazing Sunday in the Whitsundays

Pinterest costs me a lot of money.  Every time I see a pretty picture from somewhere in Australia, I figure out a way to go there and see the picture in person.  This time, it was this stunning picture from the Whitsundays.

Jetstar was certainly an enabler when earlier this year they introduced a Melbourne - Proserpine/Whitsunday Coast flight.  The day they introduced them the prices were ridiculously cheap so I quickly jumped in and picked a weekend in October.  That was in March.
Finally October came and we took the 2.5 hour flight North.  We stayed near Airlie Beach and explored the town centre when we landed.  We strolled around the Saturday morning market, and the mix of beach ware and coconut oil made me think for a minute I was back in Bali.  Then we walked down the main drag and stopped in The Great Northern Brewery for some beers and lunch.  Our plans for lunch were soon thwarted when we realised we had an hour until the kitchen opened, but Phil was happy to have a couple beers…
