Jetskiing, Para-Sailing,Snorkelling

Adam & I went away for 3 days before he gets married in January & had a great 3 days. We flew into Hamilton Island which was pretty stunning flying in over all the islands & Whitsunday coast.

We caught a ferry from Hamilton to Daydream Island stopping off at other islands. Got a nice room overlooking the water & worked out how we would fill our next few days.

Lying in the hammocks under the coconut tree was popular with both of us. We hired a jetski & had to follow a guide & went around Brampton Island. We took turns driving & were allowed to wander off & do whatever sped we wanted. I had a terrifying turn sitting behind Adam when he drove!!

One morning we hired equipment to go snorkelling. The water wasn't the warmest but it was fun hugging the shoreline & seeing all the coloured fish. We also walked top the lookout & to the little beach bays.

Our highlight was to go para-sailing behind a speed boat & it kept getting delayed due to the strong winds. Eventually the winds calmed down enough for us to go out late one afternoon. It was exhiliarating but terrifying!!!. Once we were as high as it goes I couldn't look down but had to look out at the horizon to stop myself freaking out!!!

A nice thing we did one night was to watch outdoor movies. We walked to the other side of the island ( it's a small island) & sat in comfy deck chairs & were given knee rugs as the breeze was cool & watched a movie under the stars.

I shouted Adam to a massage ( his first) one afternoon which he loved.

To get home we caught a boat to Airlie Beach, a bus to Proserpine & flew home from there. Fun few days!!
