Whitsunday Sunset. Maybe I should stop taking pictures of sunsets but they always look so good. Especially from a yacht off the coast of Australia.
This has nothing to do with the Whitsundays, it's just for the comedy value.
We spent 3 days and 2 nights sailing round the Whitsundays on a yacht called Summertime, about a week and a half ago, so technically this blog should come before the red centre one. Our boat was captained by a guy named Chris and 'first mate-d' by a Kiwi called Harry who told us an impressive number of obscene, offensive and utterly immoral jokes. E.g.
"How many babies does it take to paint a wall?
Depends how hard you throw them".
That is one I could put in my blog and not cause people to never read it again.
I scuba dived a couple of times, making me think that I might do a scuba course in Thailand. We were diving on the outer fringes of the Great Barrier Reef, a better place to dive than the main reef apparently because of the higher variation of coral/fish there. Saw some pretty massive turtles while we were down there and I also held a 'sea-cucumber' a slimy cucumber-esque thing which is apparently a delicacy in Japan. As well as scuba-diving there was a bit of snorkeling and some sea kayaking, all in all beating the hell out of working.
Another tropical beach here, another completely unique and jaw-dropping view there, this backpacking is a real struggle against the constant obstacles life throws at you sometimes.
