Sunday 13th February

We got up on time and got a shuttle bus to the dock where we got our ride for the day. We booked just a day trip on a ex lifeguard boat. which means it went bloody fast! We climbed aboard and the boat went so fast it only took 40 mins to get to the islands. The boat had inflatable sides that you could sit on while the guy rocks the boat from left to right so fast you nearly fall out. Our first stop was a snorkelling site where all three of us went for a snorkel together. Was a good job we had those hideous stinger suits on, as there were lots of tiny jellyfish in the water, which stung our hands and feet a fair bit! After that we shot over to whitsunday island and did a bush walk. I ate some ants (bush tucker) and found myself picking legs out of my mouth all the way to the top of the island. We got to the lookout and had the perfect views of whitsunday beach and the swirling sands. After that we went on the beach and chased some soldier crabs and got the boat over to whitehaven beach which was amazing! pure white sands, crystal blue water and a clear blue sky! we sat and had lunch and then played vollyball with a couple of girls we met on the boat. We stayed on the island for a good 2 hours and then it was time to head back to mainland. I decided to sit on the inflatable sides and held on to the ropes because the bloke went crazy! snaking the boat from left to right was mental could have fallen off at any second! We got back and went to the lagoon to get the salt water off us. We sorted some dinner out and met up with the 2 girls from the boat earlier for some drinks at a few bars. The night ended with lewis wearing girls pj's up to his nipples strolling into mcdonalds at 3 in the morning and asking for a ice cream... priceless.
