Whitsunday Island Sails and Airlie Beach...

We spend the last 2 days and nights aboard the Wings catamaran cruising around the Whitsunday Islands. Stacey did some snorkling and Brent and Adam did some diving around the Great Barrier Reef as well as just taking in the sights and sounds of the sea. Lots of sea life all around the Reef, fishes of all shapes and sizes! The Coral was great in some areas, in some areas its obvious there have been too many people getting their fingers on it. I still can't get over the number of fish! We saw lots of 'Nemos' as they are now called (disney culture permeates the universe, perhaps it is the dark matter the 'soon to be found out' mistaken astronomers speak of), stingrays, dogfish, napoleans, etc., etc. We also have lots of underwater pix from the trip we'll post when we're back in the US.

Today we're in Airlie Beach just cruising about town until our final flight within Australia to head back to Syndey for one last day then we begin our trip home. While Stacey and I have had a great time, we both agree that it'll be nice to be back in Portland with friends and be able to talk on the PHONE with folks. Its been a great lifestyle the past few weeks, but one that I'm glad to say was just temporary. I want to have wireless internet, great coffee, my RSX, and wander around town wreaking havok with friends on bicycles and otherwise.

See or talk to most everyone very soon!

Hoping I still have a job when I get back :)

I'm sure you are looking forward to heading back but it won't be long before you wish you were back int eh Whitsunday's. Enjoy it while you can. I wish I was there again! And yes, there are OOODLES of fish! If you go diving again, try carrying a piece of bread down with you. They go nuts for it.
